New to the world of BB, any help is appreciated
I have a blackberry 9650 bold without camera in india

i follow the usual trouble shoot- options--> network on/off
register new device
at times it works
but at time i have to hard boot( remove batt) and then internet work
i understand that may be due to mem leaks- but this is a new bb- 2 days old

Hi and Welcome to the Community!
If you indeed suspect a memory leak, you should be diagnosing if that is true by watching over AppMemory...are you doing that? If so, what are your results?
But, what you describe sounds more to me like either some corruption in your OS that is somehow causing this instability, or a hardware level issue...
If hardware, you of course seek formal warranty support from your original place of purchase, your mobile service provider, or your authorized service center...the method varies by region, but you should have received, when you purchased your BB, documentation instructing you as to exactly what your warranty coverage is along with how to use it.
If OS corruption, then the course of action would be an OS reload.
At the top of each device forum, there should be some "sticky" threads that discuss the OS levels available for many models. If they include your model, then please use those as reference as you proceed. Otherwise, you will have to dig through the official download portal for OS packages for your model:
From a PC, you can install any compatible (e.g., for your exact BB Model Number) OS package to a BB via this procedure:
Note that while written for "reload" and the Storm, it can be used to upgrade, downgrade, or reload any BB device model -- it all depends on the OS package you download and install to your PC. If that OS package is from a carrier other than the carrier for which your BB was originally manufactured, then delete, on your PC, all copies of VENDOR.XML...there will be at least one, and perhaps 2, and they will be located in or similarly to (it changes based on your Windows version) these folders:
Be sure that you remove, from your PC, any other BB device OS packages as having more than one installed to the PC can cause conflicts with this procedure.
You may also want to investigate the use of BBSAK (bbsak.org) to perform the wipe it is capable of.
You may also want to try this procedure to perhaps narrow down the precise causal item:
When the behavior presents, you know the culprit...the last thing you loaded.
If the behavior does not re-present, then you know that either step 1 or 2 cured it.
If the behavior presents no matter what, then you likely have a hardware level issue for which no amount of OS or software can cure.
If you are on MAC, you are limited to only your carriers sanctioned OS packages...but can still use any levels that they currently sanction. See this procedure:
Good luck and let us know!
