    what have you downloaded lately? if you haven't put anything new, like themes, on it, then yeah, i would guess space. what OS are you running? maybe an upgrade?

    U might be running out of space. Delte a few appls that u aint using like "Search" or "Help" Sometimes it can happen of an appl. or a game u donwloaded and it causes the problem. Or u could always try the good old trick like kayos72 said, pull the battery

    from time to time i use the switch application tool to see what stuff is active.
    i sometimes forget to close apps which i would assume could hog resources

    or it could be digital gremilins...

    Hi , had to jump in. Pulling the battery wont harm the device , its actually good for it but also do this every few days : press the "alt" key and at the same time press the "L" key and then the "G" two times then delete the logs, your pearl will fly after that...Len

    I've noticed that when i run the t-mobile themes it crawls at times. I suspect its the myfavs thingy that's messing it up. When I run the non-t-mobile themes it flys again. Maybe that is the issue...the Vodafone theme is super quick

    hmm..
    ok, from the home screen, you must hold down the alt key and while holding it down, press the L key, then the G key, then the L key, then the G key and then lift off of the alt key...

    The command to open your logs is alt L-G-L-G.

    The description meant hit lg twice not L then G twice
    Hope that helps

    Re: reasons why 81xx OS slows down?

    I'm finding my new Pearl (Rogers) to be very slugish compared to the Sony Clie (Palm Pilot) I've had for the past couple years. I'm running the .51 software and have cleaned up my log file.
