    delayed symbol key

    Advertisement



    Every time I'm writing something and hit the "sym" key it takes like 2 or 3 second just to open the symbols screen, then moving the cursor around its all laggie etc.

    Anyone else with this problem?

    I'm using the iphone theme and the latest OS.

    i would check to make sure you don't have any extra un-needed applcations open.
    i get this a lot when im power using the BB messenger. i have to close down conversations and restart...

    you can do this by holding down the alt key and hitting the back key

    Re: delayed symbol key

    did you try the alt + LG LG ?
    It should help. Select clear.
    I also go to the browser and delete or clear cache.
    Then perform a battery pull/reset..
    Let us know!

    you hold down the alt key, press L then G then L then G and let up on the app key...this will bring up your logs. you can clear them out...they will let up on some memory.

    Re: delayed symbol key

    Sorry for reviving this thread, but I have the same problem. The posts above didn't help me, I tried that all. But - possible interesting - I'm getting this delay only with the two "iphone"-themes. Are these themes using so much cache?

    Yup. Had the same problem. Drove me nuts. Use a different theme. Kinda sucks though, I really like the clown fish theme.

    Re: delayed symbol key

    yeah, one of the best themes I've found! Aren't there other ways to solve that problem? Additionally I don't think, that I have too much apps on it. In principle one new game, a dictionary and some ringtones. Perhaps I should say, that I don't have a SD-Card - could that improve that thing so much, that this key isn't so damn delayed?
    By the way, there are no other performance problems...

    Yeah that's true. It apparently has something to do with the transparency of the backgrounds of the option screens, so try a theme without transparency.

    (Or theme-builders, make themes without transparency winkwink...)

    Re: delayed symbol key

    i have the same problem on my 8800. The SYM screen has two pages, i found the 2nd page with smiley faces not lagging as much as the one containing symbols. Could it be a font problem.
