    Hard reset it(wipe), or load a new operating system. Its one of those things with blackberries.

    Have you done a master reset on the Blackberry yet? This will most likely solve the problem.

    To do a master reset,

    Note: This will reset the phone to its original factory settings and wipe all internal memory not stored on the SIM card. Perform a system backup before attempting this option.


    Go to the Home screen and press the Menu key
    Select Settings
    Select Options
    Select Security Options
    Select General Settings
    Press the Menu key
    Select Wipe Handheld
    Select Continue
    Type in the word blackberry

    If this doesn't work, your motherboard may be bad.

      Then ask your retailer to replace it with new one.But before approaching them,try resetting it as they would do the same before accepting to replace your phone.

      viplov04, if it's only 3 days old, bring it back and have them swap it out. Sounds like a defective unit to me.
