I have noticed that my E6-00 (Purchased from CarphoneWarehouse UK, May 2011) keeps restarting, rebooting, freezing, screen goes blank, apps stop working, black screening! On me.
The phone does this in these conditions.
1. By itself - no interaction from me the user
2. While I am using it to do the most simple functions such as making calls, or searching for contacts,
3. Using downloaded apps such as WhatsApp
I have read the forum and this seems to be a common problem yet, anyone from Nokia is yet to fix this?
Can anyone from Nokia please explain this behavior and most importantly how you are going to fix it. If this is not fixed am I in my rights to as for a new handset?
Solved! Go to Solution.

Seems like your phone is facing serious firmwire problems.Ensure that you have the latest firmwire,try to do a soft reset of your phone(make a back up of all phone memory,like contacts and all data) and see if it helps.Also check that no background apps are running,and regularly clear your browser cache and cookies
thanks for advice, i will try soft reset tonight and get back to you. I do beleive I have the latest software:
I just did a software update and it says I am up to date. Will post an update
I have "restored to factory settings" using the option within the phones menu. So far so good. Its been 48 hours, the phone seems to be running quicker/smoother than before, no signs or freezing or crashing so far.
I will post an update in 1 week or so.
UPDATE: Since restoring the phone, I have had quite a few "REBOOT, RESTART, CRASH, FREEZE, FROZEN, BLANK" issues.
1. I can not figure out what makes the phone restart by itself.
2. However I have narrowed down the the FREEZE/BLANK screen that happens. This only occurs when I am trying to use of have just used the Email software.
Can this topic bet set to "unresolved"?

THIS POST IS NOT RESOLVED/SOLVED
There is no software update for my phone in the UK. The update you are advising me on DOES NOT EXIST!!! Nokia are totally useless. I have had a phone that keeps crashing and not working since new!! I have tried re-installing the software so many times and it simply does NOT WORK!!
Can this post please be re-opened!!!

I GIVE UP ON NOKIA
After months of frustration with the Nokia E6-00 and with no support from Nokia UK, I had no choice but to purchase a Blackberry Bold 9900. I purchased this phone in Sep 2012 and have been using ever since. Even though I was a die hard Nokia fan I have to admit the Blackberry is quicker and does not crash as badly as the Nokia did. However there are still things I miss about my Nokia. For example the screen quality, camera/video quality.
If only Nokia had finished developing the OS it would have been far superior to BB. The Nokia E6-00 was released before the Bold 9900 yet no major network sold it on contract. There was no advertising, no-one had heard of it.
I will now wait and see if Nokia release a QWERTY style phone on Windows OS.
