    Question HElp : Sand Clock on every second ???

    Advertisement



    Since today the little sand clock timer is on and off every second. As under windows , it slows down everything . Any idea what is causing this ? Its as if the Pearl was receiving emails continuously ...

    A real pain in the ***.

    BTW, i lose all my emails/sms every day . They are never saved for more than a few hours...

    I'd take out the battery (reset). Check the amount of free memory you have before that (Options-Status). I bet it's way low (normal is more than 15mb out of the box).

    Yeah, sounds like you are low on memory and so the device trys to free some up by deleting things and is slow because it has to move data around to get to what you want. Transfer any pictures you might have in memory to a computer and delete them from your BB.

    Awesome, it worked !

    Do you have any idea why the BB is losing all my mails/sms after a few hours ? The first days it used to save them but now it seems to reset every 3/5 hours .

    Same Reason, running low on memory and deleting the messages so that new ones can be received. You might want to delete all your unused Language Support modules to free up more space.

    Hope this helps

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~yes this is all a memory problem.there is a thread somewhere on the forum that explains good ways to clear up a lot of memory. I'm not sure where it is but a simple search will probably find it. Hope that helps.

    Hi guys, i have the same problem since yesterday. I tried deleting files, rebooting, service books but nothing worked. I read in a forum that Applications might be the problem so i went to Desktop manager and Uninstalled Facebook and PROBLEM SOLVED!!! Downloaded facebook and installed it again and is working as always.!

    I've had the hourglass problem for the last two days. Had posted the question on Crackberry and this is what I got today. I tried cleaning up the Switch Apps, found I had Phone icon, deleted it and the hourglass is gone. YAY!

    I had also deleted Facebook-but that was not the answer.

    Anyway....try checking and deleting in Switch App as described below.


    This is one of three things:

    - you are in a poor signal area
    - there is a program runnng that is continually hitting the CPU
    - There really is a fault in the hardware

    Signal strenth is ieesential to battery life. In poor signal areas the phone tries harder and more often to contact a mast. This drains the battery like no other way.

    From the Applicatins Desktop press Menu and scroll to Switch Apllications. Running should be Call Log, Home Screen, Browser and Messages. If there is anything else running, selest it and close it with Menu, Close.

    Hardware fault: try to get a replacement phone.

    It may also be worth trying a battery pull - I am sure that you have already done that. Finally you could reload the OS or upgrade it to a later version.
