Hello it would really great if someone can help me with this issue.
I am using a BB Curve 8520 Smartphone (EDGE WIFI) v22.214.171.1241.... From almost a month now i am facing a problem whenever i m using my phn for more than 5mins in a stretch... Even while browsing internet or during call the screen jst blurs and goes totally white and then i have to take d battery out nd reinsert it and it will try to restart for a min or so nd again go sompletely white midway..... The only way the phn restarts is by reinserting the battery while being attached to the charger.... Although it doesnt have battery issues as when the phone starts again the battery indications are correct and doesnt show a drained out battery.
I upgraded software frm BB website and also tried deleting all the new apps that i had downloaded but still the problem wont go..... The phn works perfect and doesnt freeze even once when constantly connected to the charger.... But practically thats not possible.....
Please do help me with this issue at the earliest.....
Thanx in advance.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Did you drop ur phone in water or hard surface?
You seems to be having a hardware problem with the screen.
Best solution get ur Blackberry Device Checked from a Qualified Mobile Service center.

This is happening to my curve 8520 right now. I was told that my phone may have board problems, however, i failed to believe this as the phone works quite well when plugged in. I thought many times that the cause may have been the battery; your views have confirmed this theory. Also, my battery is slightly swollen. I haven't gotten the chance to try a different battery but as soon as i get the chance, i will definitely share my result.
