I have a blackberry curve and have always visited the quiltingboard on it during lunch breaks, traveling, anywhere anytime. BUt lately I have been having a LOT of trouble when trying to go to a specific topic. I'm not having trouble on other sites.

Once in awhile it will go to the topic, but most of the time when I click on a topic it will take me to the quiltingboard home page that lists all the sections.

Does anyone else have this problem as of late? PLEASE HELP! I LOVE to be able to visit when traveling and will be going to Des Moines show this weekend and its a 4 hour or longer drive.

I have already cleared my history, freed up a bunch of memory, and nothing helps.

I know I sound desperate, but I get soooo booorrreeeddd when traveling. So i guess I kinda am.

I was having trouble with my iPod doing the same thing. I realized that I needed to do updates on the iPod. All I had to do was completely turn the power off for a minute or two and then it worked just like before.

You know, my iPhone didn't have service one time for an entire day shortly after I got it. I mentioned it to my mother saying that I was going to stop at the cell phone store on the way home and she suggested turning it off and back on again. It cleared the problem and has worked fine ever since.

Sometimes something as simple as shutting it off and turning it back on again does the job. :thumbup:

Nope. I've done all the usual stuff. Turn off..battery pull. Tried the PDA link at bottom of this home page.

But that sure solves a lot of other troubles. :)

Ok folks, I know there's a techy somewhere in our bunch. Any other ideas? Seems to be working at the moment, but I'm sure it won't last. ;)

I have noticed the same thing happening on mine. This is a recent problem, used to work fine.

It's most likely triggering a spider trap on the site.
There is a problem with blackberries pre-fetching pages that they aren't supposed to pre-fetch.
I removed your IP from the filter. Please PM me if it happens again.
