    bb curve sooo slow

    Advertisement



    I just got a brand new curve from rogers and i find this thing so laggy it is becoming unusable. It was like this with a fresh out of the box install. It takes 5 seconds to load up the profiles menu. Moving the ball up and down shows a good half second or jump type lag.

    I feel like i'm using a computer from the 1980s...any thoughts?

    OS v 4.2.2.89

    Did you delete any unused languages and preloaded movies? Clear your logs by going to ALT+LGLG, set up your memory cleaner in Security settings?

    Also, check the RIM Handheld and this forum for other software versions to see if there is one that is more recent than that one.

    Did you add another theme or something? Some themes make the phone run slower than it should

    I found the Phantom theme was like that on the Pearl, but it isn't available on the Curve as of yet. Try the about suggestions (clearing logs, uninstalling extra stuff, etc). If you just purchased it (under 30 days), the store can DOA it (replace it with a new one). If you go that route, don't let the store give you any crap about 30 minutes of usage, as the DOA policy is 30 days, unlimited minutes. If they're being difficult, get a manager or a RAR\Area Manager involved.
    If you want to fight it out with your current phone, try upgrading the OS.
    Hope this was of some help to you.

    Did u run the setup wizard? That will delete all unused languages. What OS did your device come with? Options/about. Third line down.

    I deleted all the themes that I don't use, now my BB is running smoother and faster than ever. (themes takes up a lot of memory FYI)

    Also delete apps that you don't use, clear your cache in a regular basis, and also delete messages on your inbox.

    Goodluck!

    Hi.Thanks for that alt lglg thingy. I had tons of stuff that looked like messages from an alien race. If I don't know what it is, and didn't put it there, I don't want it on my BB.

    Could you please elaborate on the options -> security tip? I did not see any option to clean memory.
    Thanks!

    Go to Options>Security Options>General Settings>Enable Password.
    Go to Enable Content Protection. Click Save.
    Enter and verify password when prompted. Exit to Home Screen.
    Go back to Options>Security Options>Memory Cleaning>Show Icon On Home Screen. Change to Yes.

    Weird, I did this but I do not see the icon on the home screen. Do I need to pull the battery?

    Did you follow my instructions? You don't need to pull the battery.
