AT&T Torch 9810 pauses or hangs

I have a Torch 9810 with OS  I have recently developed an issue where it tends to freeze or pause randomly.  Sometimes the watch is displayed, but not always.  There is wireless or cellular activity, but I can't tell what is running.  I have removed all the apps and then started putting them back on one at a time to see which one started causing the problem again, but I need the phone and have not been able to keep apps off of it long enough for a full test.


I think I narrowed it down to having something to do with the Twitter for Blackberry, but can't be sure, because even when I remove it, the problem still seems to happen, but not as badly.


Short of wiping the device and starting from scratch one app at a time, does anyone have any suggestions?  The only apps I have running in the background are VQ Mileage Tracker Pro, DriveSafe.ly Pro, and Slide2Open Pro.

Re: AT&T Torch 9810 pauses or hangs


Actually, I think the path you are already on is the right one. Cleanly conducting full tests is the only way to truly root out a core cause of such issues.

If you find that you can indeed conduct a full test again, then I'd actually recommend a different path...reload your OS clean and as "bare bones" as possible, and update to the latest version (which may or may not be the OS you have listed). Then, you can slowly start adding things to figure out what the true root cause is. Sometimes, going the reverse direction (removing things) does not truly reveal the root cause...if an app caused OS-level corruption (for example), then removing the app would not cure the corruption.

Good luck!

Re: AT&T Torch 9810 pauses or hangs

The problem is finding the time needed to go through all that.  I have started several times, but then realize that I need an app so I reinstall that before I got to really test the prior one.  I will have to see what I can do.  The other problem is when I do a reset, I will lose all my email from more than 5 days ago when I reactivate with BBCS.


Thanks though.

Re: AT&T Torch 9810 pauses or hangs

VQ is set to only go live when my Bluetooth headset is on, so I don't think that is it, but that has been the first app I have reinstalled and thw problem hasn't occurred with just that installed.
