Bluetooth music/BB messanger/Surfing

Hi everyone, (first post)

Long time BB user, just picked up a Bold.  My daily routine involves walking my dog while listening to my MP3's.  I occasionally chat with a fellow BB user/staff while walking and have also been known to surf a website or two while resting.  My Curve had no trouble with this (except for laggy response) but I have tried it several times with the BBB and have managed to freeze the unit completely requiring either a three-fingered salute, or a battery pull.


I tried installing the latest 4.6.126 software and that didn't help.


I'm assuming its a software issue?

Re: Bluetooth music/BB messanger/Surfing

I have had the same problems. I complained to Orange and they said that it was a known problem which has been with all BB's of old. He suggested that I turn off the BB every day or so for 15 mins at a time.
