Blackberry 7290 screen crashing. Help!

I just purchased 2 Blackberry 7290 the other day and a weird development has come about on the phone I have. The screen crashes. It has only happened three times though. And it seems to happen when I have the screen saver enabled and lock the keys and it times out. Then the screen turns a bluish color with vertical lines through it. The only way I can get it back to normal is to take out the battery and put it back in. I disabled the screen saver and now it seems to be doing fine. Is this something that I have to worry about at all? And I don't know exactly when the screen dies cause it happens when I am not looking at it. Just wanted to see what is up with it. Thanks!

Did you download any other software after you got your 7290?

The only stuff I had added to it was the t-mobile browser links sent to the phone from the t-mobile blackberry tech center....

Both Phones?

In reply to: Software

Is this issue happening on both of your phones? I've never heard of an issue like this before right out of the box. I'd suggest taking it back for a replacement ...

well...

It's not happening to both phones. And ever since I turned off the screen saver, it doesn't happen anymore. And I bought the phones third party, so there isn't a warranty or anything. I got them for 25, so that isn't a big issue. I was just wondering if it might have been a software issue...
