    Severe memory problems with my Pearl

    Advertisement



    I have a BB Pearl OS 4.2 and over the past week I've had some severe memory issues and no matter what I do, I can't fix it. I've had my call logs deleted twice in the past and I found the forum on how to increase your memory. Those things worked in the past, but seem to be useless now. My file free even got to 0...that's right ZERO twice in the past couple of days. I've tried battery pulls, erasing the event log and browser cache, getting rid of unused apps/themes, erasing old messages, and moving all photos to my media card. I haven't downloaded anything new recently, so I don't know what is sucking up all of my memory. Usually after a battery pull i would end up with 11mb of mem. Now after doing all of the above I'm only at 7-8mb. What to do?

    What operating system are you using? You may find it helpful to upgrade to a newer OS (.107 seems very stable). The newer OS seem to free up more memory and the install will also clean things up.

    Have you tried updating the OS of your BB? What OS are you currently using, look it up by holding Alt and pressing EACE.

    Yeah there are a couple OS upgrades you can do that are higher than what you're running.

    Go here to get the latest: http://blackberryforums.pinstack.com...2_1_108_a.html

    In updating you'll also have the ability to delete the Blackberry Video and other Languages you don't use that will free up memory as well. If there are any apps you don't use on a regular basis you can delete those at that time as well.

    Another thing is to verify that your pics are being stored on your media card if you have one. Even if you have a card doesn't mean they get stored there by default unless you set the phone to do so. For this go into the Camera app and then Options. If you have any pics on the phone itself you can also copy them over to the card and then delete what's on the phone.

    Hope that helps.

    I had the same problem in the past. I found that deleting the blackberry video and all the language packs I don't use to have freed up enough memory to stop the deletions.
