    Just got my Pearl, LAGS incredibly.

    Advertisement



    Hey guys, I got my BB Pearl a couple of days ago and a friend reccommended this forum to me.
    I have average technology knowledge and am trying to understand better the Pearl.
    I have encountered the problem of a very big lag. Whenever I want to do anything it just lags for a second, even answering a call, hanging up, getting in the browser, starting an app, locating a contact, etc.
    I only added the MiM messenger app which I cant log in, it keeps showing an error. I also added a small ringtone.
    Its showing only 9mb of free memory.

    I have been using the search and got to a couple of freeing memory threads, dunno if this will help me or not, maybe my phone is just messed up.

    Thanks for any help in advance

    Alt + LGLG and clear that.

    Remove some unessary languages (run dm and make sure you have your OS installed on your desktop and uncheck unessary languages and things like maps, sample video if you dont need them)

    ALT + espace and close applications that are running (you cant some all of them like phone, etc)

    let us know if you want to remove languages. And do you know if you have the latest OS on your pearl

    Do you have a data plan....that could be the problem to your login problem

    Hello Nepok, Welcome to the Stacks!!!

    Ok where to start...um my first recommmedation is to get a MicroSD card. You probably don't have one since you just got your pearl. The lag is due to the memory, and maybe your OS is out of date.

    Go to Options>About and tell me what it says for the version. ex: 4.2.x.xxx those last four numbers is all we need.

    We'll leave it at that and them go from there let me know

    Re: Just got my Pearl, LAGS incredibly.

    When I press alt escape this is what I see:
    messages , phone, home screen, mimlite, media, brickbreaker, bb messenger, address book, browser and PTT.
    I ordered a 1gb MicroSD already, getting here in a couple of days.
    I dunno what LGLG is.

    The version is 4.2.1.96

    Thanks for the welcoming, you guys seem pretty cool.

    I have hotmail btw.

    there is 5 default that are always running

    Homescreen, Messages, Phone, BBMessenger, Browser

    All the rest you can close, unless you want them running like your IM client.

    Media, Brickbreaker, Address Book you should be able to close. PTT I'm not sure about since I don't have that. If you don't use it, there are some threads on how to remove it if you want.

    You may want to check out this thread...http://blackberryforums.pinstack.com...on_issues.html

    EDIT: If you do a lot of web surfing then you may want to clear out your Content Cache
    Browser>Options>Cache Options and clear Content Cache. That should free up some memory too.

    It depends on the application.

    Some times if you back out with the Escape button that will close it, or you may have to hit menu and go to close. Either will work...usually the apps designed to run in the background you need to go to the menu to close them.

    Is the version of my OS old?
    Why is MIMlite not working?

    ALT+ LGLG clears out the log on your phone. This can give you some extra memory. To close the programs that are running in the background, go to the program and exit, not just close them.

    Your OS is the Most recent for AT&T. The Latest is the TMO version 1.107. You may want to get use to your pearl before you go about updating the OS.

    Do you have a BB data plan? Pretty sure the MIMLite uses data to transmit info.

    open them up then press menu and close it.
    Example: Go to brickbreaker > press the menu key (button right of the trackball) and scroll down and find "close" click it. You have too many things running thats why.

    HOLD ALT and press these buttons.... LGLG (thats L GH L GH) and press menu and clear log. It will pop up in a sec and you will see these line you dont understand. Free a BIT of memory

    If you dont use PTT you can delete it and open up locked vendor themes. If you want to do that let me know. And if you want to free up memory for pic and ringtones delete unessary languages...

    let me know if you need help with removing PTT...unlocking vendor themes and deleting languages (you will likely need help)

    AHH YOU GUYS BEAT ME TO IT

    Re: Just got my Pearl, LAGS incredibly.

    Go to Options>Settings>About and type in what you see here. For example, on my 7100t (my Pearl is non functional right now), I have BlackBerry 7100 Wireless Handheld (GPRS) v4.1.0.377 (Platform 1.8.0.154).
