I would recommend re installing the software on the device. Call verizon or take to store.

Hi,

You can reinstall the operating system software to your device with Blackberry Desktop Manager.  If you connect your device to your PC with BDM installed, it may not recognize the Blackberry right off the bat, but go through the update process, it will work.  Somehow, your OS became corrupted, usually from a recent application that was added.
