    Pearl Keeps Lagging

    Advertisement



    So I had just been surfing through my Pearl, going through folders and whatnot when all of the sudden it freezes (the hourglass just keeps turning for about ten minutes) so I did a battery pull since the back button and the end call button weren't doing anything. Now anytime I go to play brickbreaker, the ball freezes for a second every time it hits something. It's driving me crazy. Should I pull the battery again? I hate pulling the battery just because it takes a while for it to start back up again and last time I did it I had to load my backup from my computer because it changed some of the settings (background pic, theme, font size, etc)

    No to either. The only two apps I have are opera and ramble. I delete my messages at least once a week.

    If you leave your apps running (including music, photos, videos) it will slow you pearl down> your track ball probably doesnt respond fast either. Go into your apps and close them out by exiting through there menus and not pushing the red hangup button cause it doesn't close them it just hides them

    You can also see what apps are running by holding the shift key + left arrow key (on the right of the trackball) and this will display the apps, you can also check your memory usage by going to options>then status if you are lower than 5MB, i would consider cleaning up. hope this helps

    i have my left side key set to "application switcher" before i knew about the "alt+left arrow"
    it really helps to close all the open applications, or just multitask.

    Clear your CONTENT CACHE from your browser. It might be the culprit.

    Browser>MENU>OPTIONS>CACHE OPERATIONS>CONTENT CACHE>CLEAR

    Re: Pearl Keeps Lagging

    Well guys...kind of weird. I go to pull my Pearl out of my pocket and I've got the white screen with the hour glass. It restarts (I don't know how, it was locked) and it's working finally and it's fast. No idea what the problem was before.
