    8320 deleting SMS messages...how do I stop it?

    Advertisement



    My phone deletes my SMS messages peridoically...plus, when I try to send a message, I get a message indicator for maybe 2 seconds and then it goes away, and my SMS inbox is empty. Thing when I try to send an SMS: It shows the "sent" checkmark, but then the message disappears a few seconds later. What's happeneing?

    Hi Robb,

    Most likely this is related to low memory issues. Take a look at this thtread and post back if the problem persists.

    I went to messages>options>general options and that the buttom it has a keep messages option and I picked forever. After that it never deleted any off my messages. But a tip is like after you get a whole bunch of messages it does eat up your memory and kinda slows your BB a lil. Just a heads up.

    Re: 8320 deleting SMS messages...how do I stop it?

    OK So I read through part of the thread, and checked out my memory...my "file free" is 0 byes and my "file total" is 52953088 bytes, so my memory is pretty much tapped. My question is this: I just loaded about 7 themes onto the Curve; is this what is eating at my memory? If I delete them will it free up some space?

    I never had low memory problems with my previous BB's, a 7100 and an 8700G. Do the Pearl/Curve have less memory than typical BB's?

    They should have more memory I would guess. Try a battery pull and see if that gives you any memory back. I used to have alot of themes on my BB and I did notice it run slower but I never checked if it was eating my memory. But I would say if your not gonna use all 7 themes maybe delete the one you think you most likely not gonna use.

    I think you found it -- Very likely the themes are a big culprit. Best to keep themes on your desktop and load them when you want to use them.

    I beleive the issue with the memory on BB Pearl is related to the increase in apps, media, etc that seem to be available and commonly used.

    Anyway delete the unused apps, themes, languages, and make sure all media is on the sd card and lets see if that takes care of it!

    OK I'm goin to give it a shot. I also found that when I loaded my data onto this phone (from my last BB) it loaded all my ringtones and stuff too...I have quite a few of them. I'm going to remove those as well and see if it helps. TIA for all the help guys!
