    Pearl automatically deleting sms

    Advertisement



    Hello, my Blackberry Pearl 8100 sometimes deletes text messages automatically as they arrive. You see them flash on the screen momentarily and then vanish into thin air. I don't know how the Pearl reaches this state, but if it is affected at any given moment then it will happen with all text messages from then on until the phone is switched off and on again. This then fixes the problem.

    Couldn't find any references to the sae problem on the forum with a search. Any ideas?

    This is usually caused by low memory. You should try and do a battery pull. Take the battery off and leave it out for 30 seconds. (this is when the phone is on) Replace the battery. I usually do a battery pull 1x every 2 days.

    Thanks for the reply. I'll go ahead and try that and be careful to keep some memory free.

    Ta!

    This has been happening often on the 8100 and the 8300s, what i have found to work is setting the memory settings differently for instance if you open your pictures press menu and go to options change the device memory limit to 12m and the reserved pictures memory to 2m and hit menu to save the options, it has worked for me ever since
