    Advertisement



    my new bb is slow. wondering is there is anything i did or can do to speed it up? i got a 4 gb card but its still very slow!!!! it takes like a full min to enter any icon on the home page and like 3 mins for voice command. plus i was also wondering if there was a way to switch from bt phone to bt audio to bt head set without having to diconnect from one and connect to the other. For example, when im walking to my car with my bt head set on, then enter my car, I wish when i start my car i could have it switch to my car bt audio player witout all the trouble. any help would be great!!!! thanks.

    not sure about the bt thing cuz I'm not lucky enough to have more than one . And this might not help you with how slow its running but have you checked to see how many apps you have running in the background and how much free space you have?

    Yeah about it running slow I was going to say the same thing, Make sure you don't have too many apps running, when it runs slow hold alt+ backspace and and close your extra apps you don't want runnninr manually.

    If you JUST got it, and its the first day or two, sometimes it will run slow out of the box. Once it runs through all of your apps and media once, it will pick up its performance.

    If you have not set up/optimized your memory and settings, (moving media to your SD card, configuring memory allocations, etc) then I would suggest that.

    You can find info to help with that here.

    Some themes will make it run slower too, I've found.

    well you should only have 1 or 2 themes on the device at any given time IMO
