Black Berry Curve error

Hello there,

recently my curve (8300) started restarting endlessly. You cannot stop it unless you remove the battery from the phone. I took the curve to one of the repair shops and i was told that it requires reinstalling the software (OS) however they do not have the software for the 8300 series.

Could any one assist and advise me into a solution for my curve?

Re: Black Berry Curve error

Thanks, i followed the instructions and KUDOS, the fone nolonger restarts.

However it is unable to pick the network. We have tried various simcards but i will not pick the network.

Is there something else i should do to the phone.

Many thanks.
