stupid hourglass glass is constantly flashing - Np e-mails coming in - Help!

 

Hourglass symbol is constantly flashing and I can't receive any e-mails.  I had a App error 523 and reset and all message came flooding in but now I am back to where I started.  Hourglass flashing and I am not receiving any messages.  I tried taking out the Micro card but it made no difference.  I haven't installed anything new in weeks.

Greetings, and welcome to the BlackBerry.com Support Forums.

 

Have you recently upgraded the device to OS 4.5? If so, you might look at this solution to Media Card constant scanning.

 

If you have not recently upgraded, what is your file free listed, at Options > Status?

I haven't upgraded and I don't understand your 2nd question.

On your BlackBerry device, go to Options > Status. What is your File Free listed there?

I must be an **bleep** but I can't find an options > status anywhere.

Look for Tools or Settings on your Device. Or Options.

 

Maybe in a folder called settings?

I have the same hourglass problem.  When checking under Options>Status I find that I have 15.4 MB file free listed.  What does this tell me relative to the problem?

Thanks

If performing above doesn't solve the issue and you are in a position to claim warranty then do it and get a replacement device.

When you mention "performing the above" are you referring to upgrading the operating system?  If so, how do I go about doing that?

Thanks,
