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