    tXt messages gone

    Advertisement



    So I just went back to look at some old messages in my inbox, and so i started hitting the space key to page down, and i only have messages from 7th, 8th, and today in there the rest are all gone like 3 months of messages all gone. idk how this happened and i've kind just accepted it. But why did it happen? Has this happened to anyone else? I know there is something that happens with the call logs, but i checked that and they are all still there?

    Thats pretty low. And is most likely your problem. Delete any un-used programs.

    Yeah, if that's not a typo, that is extremely low. You definitely need to free up some space.

    Click on the FAQ link in my signature for a thread on how to free up memory.

    Delete any applications, themes, ringtones, etc that you're not using anymore. Also, delete the Help and TTY apps from your device. Go to Options>Advanced Options>Applications. Scroll to the Help or TTY app, press the BB menu button and select Delete. That could free up as much as 5mb.

    Good luck!

    Yeah that isn't very many. How about themes? Do you have many of them on your device?

    I've heard that Google Maps and Viigo can be memory hogs.

    Press and hold the left Alt key, then continuously press and release the Esc key (to the right of the trackball. This will scroll you through the list of apps currently running on your device. If you have several apps running in the background, that will surely chew up your memory in a hurry.

    Che, you should do a soft reset or battery pull after you delete the themes/apps. That will free up even more memory allocated to the stuff you delete and any apps running in the background.

    MUCH better, che!

    Rule of thumb to keep in mind is anything below 10mb.

    Yeah, make sure you delete your cache from the internet as well. Also, it wouldn't hurt to delete your event logs either. Alt lglg, bb button, clear log, delete. That should help a bit. Viigo also has a cache that you can clear as well.
