Hi. I've been having a bit of a problem lately with the curve totally freezing ... BlackBerry Curve forum
Constant hourglass and freezes - mostly with BBbrowser
Hi. I've been having a bit of a problem lately with the curve totally freezing up with the hourglass and have come to believe it to be BB browser's doing. I've waited upwards of 30 minutes but just alt-shift-del now.
I don't have data, only use wifi.
I've noticed the hourglass come up when:
1. Extended Blueapple.mobi (open vidoes) usage. I check my memory status every once in a while to see if the bytes are decreasing (16-17mb free). They don't decrease that much, which confuses me. (btw-is it using internal memory when you open videos rather than save to sd?)
3. Checking gizmodo and opened Mobipocket reader
Before the hourglass would appear, there's heavy slowdown. Normally, I wouldn't pay too much mind about the phone freezing, but it's happening more often and I'm worried that something else may be happening.
Any insight is appreciated. Thanks

~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~well I'm no expert but my friends pearl was doing the samething so I just cleaned out the history and the cache then its started working just fine after that. I hope it works for you.
I'll definitely give that a try thanks. But I'm still wondering if there's a more permanent solution. Do I just clean the cache/history every week?
~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~i only had to do it once and its been a coulpe of weeks already. So I hope it works the same for you.
How much free memory do you have on the device.
Go to Options>Status and look at the file free. IF it is low that could be part of your issue.
Do what Mark says. It is a good idea to clear your cache regularly as it uses up precious memory!
About 15-17mb free at any given time. Opening videos doesn't seem to put any marks on memory, browsing sites can a bit, having several apps open has a little effect (I close all apps when finished Alt+Esc)
The cache only says about 50k though. Emails are bigger.
