my 8220 crashes...

I'm new to the forums so bear with me.


My Pearl 8220 I've had for about a  year now, has decided to start crashing as of January 2012.  It'll drop the call I'm on (after about 10 minutes in) and totally shut down.  The only way I can get it up/on again is to pull out the battery for a few seconds and put it back, it reboots (taking 5 minutes to do so), and then acts like nothing ever happened.


I can't find a option on my 8220 to update the software at all.  Is there a link on this site to the update?


Also, this stupid phone doesn't see Bluetooth devices either.  I'm so close to getting rid of this phone, it's not even funny anymore.
