    Slowdown when doing a lot of texting

    Advertisement



    I have a few friends and sometimes we start texting each other and keep at it off and on for a couple hours or so.

    After a while the Pearl shows down a lot and this happens everytime if I use it long enough. When you try to capatalize a letter and start typing it will work on another letter (ie... instead of Rich, it would do riCh) and I am typing just like I normally do. It will also start to make bad word selections instead of working well like normal.

    Only pulling the battery helps. Anyone else seen anything like this ?

    pulling the battery is the only thing i know of to suggest

    for the SureType not working proper, go into the custom word list and make sure do delete misspelled words. that should cut down on the "riCh's" and any other misspelled words.

    i have seen similar things on my BB when I am SMSing to otherwise and generating a lot of messages. Pulling the battery and rebooting generally cleans things up really nicely for me......

    I always have lots of free memory (15-20 usually) but it still happens. Its only when you do LOTS and LOTS of texting usually. I dont think the Pearl is up for hours of constant use.

    It could be because of so many messages but if you have the space that should not matter but it seems to.

    Tonight I am going to clear everything, LGLG, pull the battery first and then do some texting and see what happens.

    It could be that the RAM is becoming clogged, and doing a lot of memory swapping with the flash memory, therefore slowing down the blackberry.

    Just a thought
