    Slow BB

    Advertisement



    I have only had my BB less than 30 days. When I first got it, it was fast to respond when I pressed any key. Now, no matter what key I press, I get the hour glass. I do not have any pictures,videos or music on my BB. I have plenty of memory available. I have cleared history and cookies. Still no luck. I have also turned phone off and on and still slow. Can anyone help? Thanks so much!!!!

    Hold down the ALT key then press the back arrow. A screen will open up showing you all running apps. Close out what you don't need running, keep in mind there are five I think that ALWAYS stay open.....messenger, phone, home screen, and a few others..

    The ALT key has 2 arrows on it. One pointing up and one pointing down. It's the key to the left of the SYM key.

    Log out of Yahoo, and completely EXIT the browser (Menu Key>Exit on the browser screen) and see if that helps.

    The others are apps that run in the background all the time unless you 1) turn the phone completely off; 2) take the SIM card out of the phone; or 3) turn your wireless connection off by clicking the Turn Wireless On/Off icon (or use Manage Connections on the 8110, 8120, and 8130).

    I don't think the applications would be slowing it down noticably. It is possible the device OS needs and update. Do you notice a lot of network activity? Are the arrows in the top right of the screen constantly on or flashing?

    I'm thinking it needs an os update and a hard reset. Pull the battery. The yahoo prongram made my BB super slow so I ditched it. I know google bogs you down too!
