Re: bold 9700

Hi colindog,


To rule out any possible software issue that may be causing this, please try to back up your data using the BlackBerry® Desktop Software and perform a clean reinstall of your BlackBerry® Device Software.

For further instructions, see this KB article: "How to perform a clean reload of the BlackBerry Device Software for Window". www.blackberry.com/btsc/kb11320

When the software reload has finished, please do a selective restore of only essential data and then test to make sure the issue has been resolved.

For more information, please see this KB article: "How to use BlackBerry Desktop Software to restore data to a BlackBerry smartphone from a backup file" www.blackberry.com/btsc/KB10339


Hope this helps.
