    Curve deleted SMS, call log, etc??

    Advertisement



    So I send numerous SMS everyday and I was just sitting here on the comp. I picked it up to re-read a message and all my SMS are gone. My call log has also been cleared. What the hell happened to all my stuff? All my emails are still there and everything on my card seems to be intact. What would cause my data to just disappear like that without any interaction from me?

    Most blackberrys have memory issues. Used to happen to mine all the time. Just do a soft reset every day or every other day. Hold alt-caps-delete to reset. The other way is to remove the battery. Kind of a pain to reset but it only takes a couple minutes to save your data.

    sucks, just bricked my phone trying to go in through the back door and freeing up some memory because of this issue... lost sms, bb messenger, emails. It seems to have been getting worse. Downloading latest OS, which might have a memory fix. We'll see.


    Sorry, I know it's a drag.

    I'm having the same issues. I only have 2-3 3rd party apps on my curve and I run out of room all the time. You may consider removing ringtones or backgrounds. Applications you don't use, such as password keeper or search, PTT. Use the memory card for any pics, ringers, etc. and clear logs, cache and emails that you don't need frequently. I really wish RIM thought of things like this before releasing a handheld with the same memory as their handsets 5 years ago.... They really should call me to be a beta tester....

    All my media is on the memory card. I got rid of that SimulSays program, I got several voicemails today from weeks ago. That's just not cool, thankfully they weren't important. We'll see how it goes from here on out.

    EDIT: It did it again!! Looking through my Event Log I see several instances of the following:

    E myFaves-phone# (SMS manager)

    What does that mean?

    Upgrading to the latest OS should help resolve this issue. Optus OS seems to fix
    the memory leak issues that have been reported with previous OS.

    Hey everybody. New to this but had problems with the call log being erased too. What will this soft reset do? Will it correct this problem for good or will this be a reacuring one?

    Looks like I will be doing some tweaking tonight when I get home. Thanks for the help!

    Re: Curve deleted SMS, call log, etc??

    Lost emails/SMS/Call log is a known issue on the default AT&T OS. Search and you'll see a number of threads on this subject. Ya, it sucks. No easy way to fix it. There is anecdotal evidence that this problem was fixed in Optus, but I don't get the sense there is overwhelming evidence of it not happening.

    Plus, since it is intermittent anyhow it is much less obvious when the device is working correctly. I hope AT&T will release an updated OS version soon.

    i bricked my phone trying to free up used memory from the java folder on my destop. But it gave me an excuse to use the new Optus firmware - so far no more memory leaks, even after adding some third party apps. So alls well that ends well....
