blackberry bold 9900 screen keeps going blank for between 15 and 30 minutes and then just comes back on any ideas?

2 possibilities: software error, or a dirty proximity sensor. Or 3: you are one of those people who never reboot :p

For the first 2 problems visit this crackberry forum thread ;)

For problem number 3: reboot your phone at least once a day! It really does wonders for the overall performance.

Solved Problem.....
Faulty Screen pad lock on top of the bold...

Work around, when the screen goes black, press the lock button to lock the phone... then press and hold the lock button for roughly about 2 to 4 seconds... Booom the phones back up and running.

Yes - heat. My 9900 goes blank screen when it is hot, if you cool it down in front of an aircon or in the fridge the screen comes back on. Dead serious! Also know 2 other people with same issue and also proven to be due to heat - cool phone down and it works again.
