    Ok. So I shall give it a try.

    Well, I know this is a foolish question.
    As BB has internal Flash ROM, it has certain limit on being flashed.
    For flash memories, its usually 10000 times.

    So how many times we can wipe and install OSs ?

    Honestly I don't Know .. But I think if what you've said is right(10000 times) .. I doubt if you'd reach this number !

    But will it "LOCK" my phone to that carrier ?
    Or sometimes it adds unnecssary stuff like Carrier theme, logo, etc.

    Suppose I downloaded and installed AT&T 6.0.0.526.
    And it locks my phone to AT&T and prevents insertion of any other SIM card.
    Can I wipe phone with BAASK and install my native OS ?
    Once your BlackBerry is unlocked, it will always be unlocked, no matter what OS you download and since your're deleting the Vendor.xml file, nothing but the OS from that carrier will be downloaded. This is the best thing about unlocking your BB. You are not tied to any carrier (except for paying your monthly bill)

    I have never heard of anyone wiping the OS of their device too many times.

    I upgraded OS to 6.0.0.526.
    But the issue is still not resolved
    Seems that all OS6 variants have the problem.

    I'll flag this thread to see if we can get some more help in here with users who have had the same issue. The fresh OS install should take care of any issues.

    Thanks Joe.

    I would like to add some info here.
    Somebody told me that OS5 has no such issue.
    So I installed OS5 yesterday but I can see the issue with it also.
    So is it my hardware having issues ?

    Will your carrier allow you to use the BIS data plan to see if that fixes the issue?

    Then you would know if it was something other than software.
