    my pearl is being pretty laggy

    Advertisement



    and unresponsive at times..

    i completely gave up on telenav maps..i havent successfully pulled a route yet..thank god for google maps...
    or is it required that i subscribe to the gps deal for it to just find directions? (i can type in the to and from addresses, and when i click accept entry it just freezes.)

    there are times when opera mini and mini beta completely freeze (i dont have either of them installed at the same time)

    its slow loading my pictures folder..

    i love the phone to death. ive had it 2 weeks..but its totally Killing me..

    im just wondering if anyone else is experiencing this? or if there are any suggestions..other than downgrading the os (which is 4.2.1.96 with AT&T)

    oh and! my desktop software 4.2 (installed on windows vista) with service pack 1 and 2..wont syncronize with my phone..it gives me a simple error message..

    whats up? haha

    First off, there is a known issue with Vista not being compatible with DM. Not sure when that fix is coming from RIM.

    .96 does run fairly slow with media apps (i.e. pics and songs). It otherwise is a very stable OS, so if it isn't too annoying, you can learn to live with it. Otherwise, if you don't like it, upgrading to the .101 or .107 versions will definitely help.

    TeleNav requires a subscription to work properly, thats why it isn't responding.

    also try running the built in memory cleaner to free up space from unneeded data

    how do you get to the memory cleaner on the pearl??? because if thats going to speed up the phone i may need to do that. because that thing darn near stops when trying to load the address book of 480 contacts
