    So Frustrating!

    Advertisement



    I have had such good luck with my 8320 up until now. I'm not sure what the problem is..but, I'm dealing with such "hang" times lately. Every time I try to open a message, change webpages, open/close apps, send messages..etc..I get the dreaded hourglass flipping around for at least a minute. I've tried cleaning memory, clearing logs, deleting unused themes/apps and all of the other obvious solutions. Is something wrong with my berry? Its so frustrating to have to restart my phone every time I turn around! Anyone have any other ideas of what I could try to remedy this?

    How much free memory are you dealing with, Jodi? What OS are you running?

    My phone tells me I have 0 bytes right now. But, I checked about 2 hours ago, and I had a long number starting with 26? Haven't added anything in that time. I'm running 4.5.0.81

    Wow, you have a major memory drain going on there for some reason. What types of applications are you running on your device?

    Might be time to consider upgrading to the latest OS for your device, which is 4.5.0.124. You can find a copy of it here.

    I have installed:

    Viigo
    Google Maps
    Myspace
    Instango
    Yahoo OneSearch
    Opera
    Lingo
    A crossword app
    Blackjack
    PokerBlast
    Yahtzee

    The only app I leave open really is myspace. Maybe I'll try the upgrade. Thanks!

    myspace can eat your device's memory, that might be your problem.

    ^^^ Thanks, Flat. I was going to say, leaving applications open like that will surely result in a memory drain of some sort. I don't use MySpace so couldn't tell you the memory hit of that application, but it sounds as though our friend Flat has a good handle on it!

    Thanks, guys! I'm going to try deleting the myspace app and see if that makes a difference.

    No need to delete it, Jodi. Just make sure it's closed when you're not using it, if that's possible.

    Just for grins, Jodi, before you upgrade, try going to browser>options>browser options and if you have "support javascript" checked uncheck it - make sure "prompt to enable javascript" is checked so if you need it you get the option. See if that makes the hourglass go away.

    So, I deleted the myspace app and haven't seen the hourglass since. I usually closed the app after using it..but, was always logged in. Anyway, for me..I think that was the solution. I also went in to Viigo and changed the options for automatic update. I think I'll wait on updating my OS. Thanks for all of the suggestions.

    You should probably update still. I remember even .110 performing better that my .81
