Java error message when trying to use browser locks phone
LadyLaura
Newbie

I have a Bold 9650 and when I go to the internet, I get an error message that says, "Uncaughtexception:java.lang.illegalArgumentException"

It won't go away from the screen when I click on OK. I can say OK over and over until about 15-30 minutes later when it finally decides to unlock.

 

I have tried pulling the battery, doing all upgrades, backing up the phone, security wiping the phone and it keeps coming back! help please!

Hello LadyLaura,

 

In the past this issue was caused by the Yahoo Messenger application. Try this:

 

1]First delete the application (i.e yahoo messenger). After doing this, you will be asked to reboot and allow it to happen.

2]  Once rebooting is done, go to Options > advanced options > applications and then menu > Modules.
3] Scroll down and to the bottom of the modules list, you would be able to see a net_rim_yahoo_messenger module. Remove that also.
4]  Again you will be asked to reboot and allow it.
5] Now, install Yahoo Messenger once again.
Thank you,
