I bought the same BB 9860. It's the biggest disappointment ever
that happened to me in my entire life !
When I got it before three weeks, it was working fine till the 3rd day of using it. After that, it started to crash and crash over and over with doing automatic restart. I took it to the warranty company which is Axiom in the UAE, well they format it and the same problem still there. Then I returned back to them, so they finally replaced it with NEW one with new PIN code, but guess what... The same problem happened AGAIN !! just by today, it crashed six times !! and yesterday it freeze up completely, so I had to pull out the battery.
Some of my friends told me that the memory card (4GB) might be
the problem, so I bought new one with 8 GB space but still suffering.
This is an evidence that the software itself is NOT WORKING as it should be.
What kind of mobile phone that will fail you down more than five times in a day ?!?!
It's expensive, It's new, I paid money for it, so why I can't get benefit of my spending ??
Please RIM, do something, or at least test the software or your phone before lunching it from the first place !
I really have no idea of what should I do, take it again to the warranty company? But they already gave me new one !! I mean what else can I do?
Solved! Go to Solution.

Thanks for your reply. When I received the first BB (BlackBerry), I didn't use any wizard. I just imported the contact from Microsoft Outlook 2010 address book to the phone for the contacts, also I imported the calendar data.
After I received the NEW BB, I imported the contacts ONLY. Because I thought the same that my previous data is corrupted or something wrong with them, but the restart occurred again.
Regarding the Applications, I just installed the "WhatsApp" directly from the AppWorld (Official BlackBerry Application website). So everything on the phone is new, the application is provided by AppWorld (compatibility 100%), so there is no mistake or miss-use behavior from my side. Am I right?
By the way, the phone restarted twice today, and 3 times yesterday.
Today's restart happened while I was taking photo (Camera), and the second one happened when the phone was in idle state, I was sitting and I just saw light coming from the screen when it was restarting (BB starting up screen).
Any ideas? suggestions? or new software for the phone?

Thanks again for your suggestion. Regarding wiping all the data, I've tried this twice but without getting my data away. You are asking me to wipe the data and use the phone without contacts & whatsApp! Actually, I can't use the phone without my contacts, I have more than 120 contacts, how I'm supposed to call them, I can't memorize their numbers; furthermore, I bought the BB to use the whatsApp which is compatible according to BlackBerry App World, because if it's not compatible, then the App World won't install it on the device To support my idea, I tried to install the "BlackBerry Protect" but the App World said: "Unavailable for this device".
By the way, yesterday I was taking picture with my friends and an error message appeared saying: "File system error (6)". I Google it and found this:
I tried to remove the memory card and put it back, but still I'm not able to take picture anymore!
My NEW BB is crashing, before a week, it's restarting, now, the Camera application is gone, I'm afraid that after a month, I'll not be able to use anything on the phone, so I'll hold it as BLASTIC SAMPLE which basically do nothing. And I'm not the only one who is suffering as I guess, because the "File System error (6)" is not fixed yet (check out the link and see the people replies)

Same problem for me, I've suspected that Blackberry Protect was the disturbing piece of my device, but even after wiping the system, removing teh battery, the memory card... the problem remains the same.
Could it be a hardware problem on Torch 9860 ?

The problem was fixed. Before three days, I was so angry so I decided to find out what causing the restart of my BB. I was trying to hit the phone from different sides, and finally I found the problem. When my BB get a small hit on the camera side, it just restart. That explain EVERYTHING. When I was talking, maybe I accidentally hit it, when I put it on table, when I was sitting in the coffee shop, someone might accidentally hit the table and that cause vibration. I got the problem on video, check it out:
Then I took it to Axiom, and told them about it. They were shocked !
Finally, they replaced the battery, it was the battery from the beginning. Actually, when they gave me new phone before 3 weeks, they gave it to me with the old battery, which means that the first phone which I bought by myself has no problem at all. It was the battery from the beginning.
Thank you all for your help, and if someone have problem like mine, make sure to change the battery
