i just updated my BB Bold 9900 to 7.10 bundle 998. It took about two hours to do, i updated the software through the phone. I made sure that I had almost a full battery before i started the update. Update is completed and phone is running well

Mine is doing the samething right now and i couldnt be more pissed off as i need my phone for business purposes, is it just a matter of playing the waiting game?
WHY WOULD BLACKBERRY PUT OUT AN UNSTABLE UPDATE!

This happened to me (hense coming across this blog) and I tried holding alt+Aa+del for a few seconds and it just whizzed right by, shot from 16% to 80% in about 5 seconds. Although I am now stuck at 80% in "BlackBerry Messenger".

Dont know which of the BB staff, masquarading here as so called support have added the avatar " I love my BB curve " to my forum name.
1. I am the unlucky owner of one of your junk 9900's
2. I hate the piece of junk more than you can imagine.
So, 3. GET RID OF IT !

Finally got the "Dumb" phone (Smart it aint) updated. Now turns out that its not recognising updated .ipd contact lists.
Spent the weekend adding contacts from the phone logs. What a piece of Junk !
Have reviewed the so called help files on the issue; it seems that the catch all solution offered by the morons behind this phone is the same whatever the problem "This is a previously reported issue that is being investigated by our development team. No resolution time frame is currently available".
The alternative is, as per usual; do a factory reset and start from scratch. Everything will work halfway until the next time it screws up.
I have this phone 4 or 5 months and this is the 2nd time Ive been through this.

After having done the reboot and bypassing the frozen up date i reload my last saved backup of my phone which brought it back to my settings/contacts/emails, then i updated it thorugh blackberry desktop manager and it worked perfectly, and thise update fixed alot of small bugs i had with my phone and its OS. over allt he update is great, its just when you update on your device for some reason the antennas get shut off and in turn the update wont finish due to no radio signal.
overall this has been an ordeal that i dont plan on facing again. stupid programmers cant even bridge an nupdate correctly.
