    heres a few things you can do to speed up your bb a bit

    hold down ALT and type L G L G. then press the menu button and go to clear log

    then go to your message folder, hit the menu button and go to view folder. go through all those folders and delete them. fastest way to delete them is to highlight the most recent dat at the top and hit delete prior.

    also pull out your battery and put it back in.

    You may have too many apps running at one time (in the background, or even currently using)......try a hard reset, or if you have "SoftReset" that works too!!

    and if you have tons of messages in your MMS/SMS Folder..you might wanna delete some, or even saved emails...that can slow your handheld down

    Hope this helps
