    The deleting convos is probably due to low memory. When you notice things have deleted on their own go to Options/Status and see what it says for file free. The hourglassing could also be from memory, or an app that your phone is not working well with. If you have added anything new prior to having these issues try deleting that app and see if the situation resolves.

    If your file free is low, anything under 10-12 million bytes, you need to do some BB house cleaning, if you can get it higher that would be better. Also try to get into the habit of restarting your BB every day or every other day. Use the alt/rt shift/delete shortcut, no need to actually pull the battery. My 8330 has more memory so I don't need to worry about that anymore, but I used to restart before I got in the shower every day when I used my pearl. The restart helps free up memory.

    Also there is a newer version out there for your BB 4.5.0.81, you may want to upgrade and see if that helps. Remove the memory card before you upgrade. Some people say it shouldn't matter, but I've seen too many posts where people had issues when they left it in while upgrading.

    Here's a link to the latest OS for all devices: http://blackberryforums.pinstack.com...ll_models.html

    Since you have 4.5 now I know you know how to upgrade so I won't link the instructions, just don't forget to delete the vendor .xml file.

    Azstar is right on about everything. I also regularly clear out browser data, sent sms, old messages, event logs, etc. Do a search on memory, you'll find some helpful threads on keeping your bb happy. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    rt shift(there are 2 shift keys a right and a left) you have to press the aly key, rt shift key, and delete key all at the same time, hold for a second and your BB will restart

    Well then I suspect it's either a 3rd party app causing issues, or it's time for an upgrade. If you don't want to upgrade yet, then do some trouble shooting. Remove the 3rd party stuff from your BB and add them back slowly, one at a time. Watch for a few hours see if you have trouble. If everything's good, add back another app until you find the troublemaker.

    Try removing your media card too, see if that makes a difference. It will be a matter of trial and error on your part.

    Just copy everything on your current one to a folder on your PC then you could copy to a new one. Try taking the card out first and see if your issues resolve. If it does seem like the card is the problem, then copy the contents to your computer, reformat the card and see if that helps before you spend money on a new one.

    After you copy the contents to your computer, disconnect from the PC then on your BB go to Options/Media Card/Menu/Format Card
