Re: Curve locking while listening to Music

Hi MrDedan,


Define locking? The device goes into the locked mode or the device is unusable

Any error messages in the lay screen?  Media format error?

Any particular song or playlist?

Also please specify device model and operations system running on the device

Let me know!

Re: Curve locking while listening to Music

I'm having a similar problem. I have an 8310 with v4.2.2.170, and a 2GB microSD card.


This happens regularly: I will be listening to music in "Shuffle" mode for 20-30 minutes and I want to turn it off. But when I go to do so, the screen is black and the keyboard is locked up--nothing I can do will bring it back. If I wait 10 or 15 minutes and try again, it usually returns functionality. But just today I waited half an hour and never was able to get it to respond. I had to pull the battery to force a reboot.


I appreciate any insights out there.

It's the holster!

I listen to music on my Blackberry Curve when I work out, and for that I use a different holster. The holster is an open design and is made by Speck.


Apparently the Speck holster squeezes the Curve too tightly in the wrong places (pressing buttons, perhaps?). When I changed to a different holster the problem went away. It's been a couple of weeks now without a recurrence of this problem, so I think this one is SOLVED.
