    8830 Verrrry slowww to send SMS texts..Help!

    Advertisement



    Hey fellow BB users...

    I tried lurking thru the forums to find an answer to this but to no avail...I have an 8830 that gets soooo slow when sending txts it seems like its 30-45 seconds befoer it goes out..then out of the blue, it will take 2 seconds like when I first got it...
    Any suggestions? I seem to have plenty of file memory and only keep about 20 texts in the inbox... All pics, videos and sound clips go on my SD card so they shouldnt be slowing things...
    Is a new OS the best route or could I be doing other things to speed her up?
    Thanks!!

    What OS are you running now? I believe the latest for the 8830 is 4.5.0.137. One thing you might consider is your signal and carrier. If you have ruled both of those options out and are not running the newest OS then that would be where I would start.

    Thanks Cowboy...I checked and Im still in the 4.3 OS range...I found the link to BB's update page and am going to try that...
    I did a memory cleanup and that helped quite a bit too....
    thanks!

    Ditto with the Texan!
    I had the 8830 2 yrs and loved it!
    But I always updated the OS to the latest, and never had a problem.

    Im assuming I need to update my Desktop Manager software first, right?
    Thats still at 4.3.0....too...

    So Im guessing, sync for backup purposes...
    disconnect and download/update DM software
    then update new OS to 4.5, right?

    which DM software? 4.5, 4.6 or 4.7??

    Thanks y'all...from another Texan and Cowboys fan too :-)

    4.6 !!!!!
    4.7 still has bugs.

    Make SURE that you remove the memory card, then reinstall it after the OS update is complete!
