    Question memory card and disappearing SMS messages

    Advertisement



    so, i just got a memory card (2 gig) for my pearl...i started putting things onto the card last night, and i noticed that all of my sms and call log started disappearing on me...I did a battery pull, and the normal 5 programs were running. i didn't have an other programs running in the background. And i'm defiantly sure that all the media is on the memory card... anyone have any idea why this is happening? it only started last night when i put about 7 ringtones on my media card....

    Not sure I can shed light...but I've been having the same issue with the disappearing info.

    It seems my issue came with my "Content Store" file retaining too much information.

    I don't know if it'll work for you, but I used Desktop Manager, went to backup/restore, clicked Advanced, and cleared Content Store. That got rid of a ton of files what were just backed up and junking up my phone.

    Bottom Line, this 8130 seems to be a premature release. Even with my best efforts, I still have serious memory drain issues...which leads to my SMS, emails, and other files disappearing. I spend about 90 minutes each day dealing with maintenance issues on my blackberry so it won't delete items.

    after you tried it, how much free memory do you have now? my 8100 has about 36 megabytes after that.

    to make sure that the problem is your media card, try to remove the media card and see it whether it is still like that or not.
