    Messaging really slowed down

    Advertisement



    Tonight I was writing some texts and I noticed for some reason typing seems like its bogged down slow. It never did this before, and I'm wondering if you have lots of messages in your inbox if the phone bogs down, or if something else is causing it. I restarted the phone and it persists. Anyone have any ideas?

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~try deleting old messages. Or uninstalling apps that you don't really use. Your probably running out of memory. Other things you can try are hard reseting and cleaning your cache and cookies. Hope these helps

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ if you're running multiple apps at the same time this may also cause this problem

    Re: Messaging really slowed down

    How can I see what apps are running and/or shut them down?

    My messaging history is only like 3 days worth of text messages, no emails. I really really hope 3 days of texts isn't causing this, I have text messages from months back on my Q and it doesnt slow it down.

    Re: Messaging really slowed down

    That doesn't sound good at all!

    When I had my old 7100r, it was often sluggish, after having upgraded the OS several times. And the SureType was super slow.

    However, all that went away when I got the 7130g.

    So for you to report this on the 8100.....that's a bit scary.


    One thing, do you have your SMS Options set to show you previous texts? I found that after setting it to 0 (zero), I never had issues with sluggish behaviour.

    From the Homescreen --> Options --> SMS --> Number of Previous Items, set this to zero and see what happens. It may not improve anything, but it's worth a try.

    I have that set to the max, because I really like having the previous texts in the new ones. Right now it seems like the problem is gone, so maybe something else was going on. Is there a way to check which programs are running and shut some down though?

    Pressing ALT & ESC at the same time will pop up a menu bar which will display all currently running apps (similar to Apple + Tab).

    Obviously, Messages, Browser, Phone, BB Messenger, and Homescreen will always be running (and you can't quit them even if you try), but you can quit just about everything else.

    Yeah, I guarantee you a lot of people have a ton of apps running in the background that don't realize they stay open.
