This has happened to me about 3 times. In the evening I turn my phone off and plug it in. I press and hold power off button and release after the 3 second count. The Blackberry word comes up and the phone sits there. sometimes it will disappear but you can there is still a faint backlight visible. I power back on again and then try again and it usually works second time. Anyone else have this or am I the only lucky one or doing something wrong? Its not a huge deal nor any sort of deal breaker for me, would like to figure it out though.

Actually, this has been happening to me more and more frequently - WIFI or not - with shut downs of up to half a minute or not at all. I have only like 7 "made for BB" apps, which are supposed to be good (eg., NYT, cbc radio, CB10, etc. etc.). Most times I simply do the reset (hold button for 10 seconds) and then re-shut down. This is getting kinda aggravating.
