    Question Memory Leak on something else ?

    Advertisement



    Just a while back, I stopped receiving mails without any other simptoms. I observed some recent mails are also gone (deleted) without my knowledge. It showed Zero remaining memory so I deleted a few photos and then mail started appearing. But soon the memory was zero again and this time my call hystory was erased ! I was able to send messages and make calls but even SMS messages were not received. !
    Is there a Memory leak or garbage collection issue ? if anyone else has faced this and what could be the fix. Currently I managed by cold-booting the device by removing battery and loosening the SIM and reinserting it after a while. Immediately it showed some 10MB free memory and started working fine. But I am so paranoid that I am checking the Free memory with every mail or SMS and trying to figure out when it goes berserk.

    This is a known problem with every Java based blackberry. The best option is to remove all unwanted, unused Language Support applications and other apps you don't need and periodic cold reboots.

    Hope this helps.

    Kavindra what OS are you on? Do you have a lot of ringtones and pictures stored on your Pearl? Do you have a MicroSD card?

    You may want to upgrade your OS. Newer versions don't seem to have the memory leak issue.
