    new to BB ques. about texting

    Advertisement



    Hey there! I'm new to BB pearl and have loved it so far. The only thing is I've been having trouble with texting. I called Cingular and we figured out it was my BB that had the prob. Some times I get all texts and other times I see the red asterisk blink only once on the message icon then disappears. And no text. And all the sent and received texts I have in my message folder all disappear after a while. What I've been doing is just taking the battery out and putting it back in. Do I need to just go ahead and exchange my BB for a new one? I've only had it for a week. Thanks so much for any advice!

    You might want to try to delete your unused Language Support Applications to free up some memory. Sometimes this will help with the message deletion problems.

    I had the same issue with my 7105 and disappearing texts. A battery pull plus several OS upgrades (until my PC decided it didn't like the 7105 anymore LOL) did the trick.

    Go into Options/Advanced/Applications/scroll to the languages you don't need and delete them. then do a battery pull again.

    Do your text messages automatically delete or was that because of the problem I was having?

    They don't automatically delete Tara. That probably happened because of the memory getting low. Let us know how you make out.

    Re: new to BB ques. about texting

    While i've got your attention I have another question. Do I have to have a microSD card in my BB to download songs from my PC to my BB? I tried it the other day (I should be getting my SD card in the nmail in the next day or two) and my PC said that Windows Media player doesn't recognize the object connected to the USB.
