    Torch freezes

    I have had my torch for about a year. I am having problems with it freezing and lagging ALL the time. Any suggestions? I did an update on it through desktop manager and it didn't seem to fix it, actually has gotten worse.

    AT&T My friend has the same phone same carrier and she is having the same problem also. It also lags or sticks per sa. It freezes but not as much as it lags or sticks and the little clock looking icon comes on and turns. This happens CONSTANTLY. Every time you use the phone at all.

    I suggest a different OS. AT&T's 526 isn't that great. Take a look here, Official: OS v6.0.0.546 for BlackBerry Torch 9800 via Vodafone, and following the instructions in the first post. Read thru the How to Upgrade Your Device - With Pictures and Video a few times to get comfortable with the procedures. Make sure to do everything in the instructions and all will go well. The .546 is much better than .526 that AT&T has made available to us AT&T users.
    No worries about voiding any warranty with AT&T because it is an official release approved by RIM, it's just that AT&T has not "blessed" it yet.

    Any questions, let us know. We'll be happy to help.

    Hi Kristine, I see ghostryder already has given you all the information needed to fix your device, Kindly let us know if the OS swap fixes the issue you have been facing. Ideally it should fix it.

    My daughter and I are having the same problem with our 9800's, I'm running 6.0 bundle 2647. Not exactly sure what that means but I'm wondering if the OS is the problem. I'm with Virgin Mobile and BB says I'm running the most current version. I'll even get the "white screen of death" every once in a while too. But mostly freezing in the middle of a text message! Any help / suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated. thx
