    haven't texted in THREE DAYS!!!!!

    Advertisement



    I have a very 'noob" question to ask.

    I know BBs automatically delete text history when the memory gets full (or something like that) but here's my problem

    I haven't been able to text for THREE DAYS because every time I send a text it deletes it and if I receive a text it doesn't tell me about it. but I've had people calling me and asking me why I haven't texted them back.

    I'm not receiving any! lol

    what is going on!!!

    they say my outgoing texts are still being sent-- but it's not saving them on my device-- they're deleted INSTANTLY-- (i don't even see the swirl and the check mark)

    HELP!!!!!!!!!!


    i have an 8830 world btw.

    What is your FILE FREE right now (Memory Free) you are correct when BlackBerries run out of mem they start deleting or even crashing The event log on the BB will offer some diagnostics but if you are a newer user you may find it difficult to understand.

    Access The BB Event Log:
    -Go to the Main Screen (Home)
    -Issue the following Keystrokes
    While holding alt, tap L-g-L-g (Don't worry about caps)

    You are deleting the event log to free up space. Hit the BB button (left of the trackball) and select clear.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~one other thing. A buddy of mine had similar issues with his 8330 from Verizon. We tried a ton of troubleshooting to no avail. It started about 2 months after he got it. Verizon told him it was defective and replaced it.

    I was having the same problem on my 8830 sprint. I have tried all the troubleshooting steps on pinstack to free up memory, delete unsed applications. Only to result in temporary fix. Since update to 4.5 i have not been plagued with that problem. Know problem for me when running 4.2....sprint could not offer any good help.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ there's mention of the 4.5 for the 8830 over at BerryReview, but when I tried it I hated it. Too buggy. (Also not allowed to post likes to beta OS's here.)

    Sorry links of Beta Os is not allowed to be posted on this site. If u check berryreview in the older post u should find some luck. The Beta OS are buggy, and there are mix reviews.
