    SMS problem...

    Advertisement



    hello all,
    over the past week i have encountered a very annoying problem with my pearl. to keep it to the point the text is slow. i literally mean, when i type it takes 30 seconds to fill in what i have already inputed. i have cleaned the memory (alt LGLG, etc.) and i have removed all 3rd party apps. of course i have done the prodigal battery pull as well. i dont know what to do and tmo support are morons... please help. this is my third pearl in a year i dont want to replace it again.
    thanks,
    randy

    sorry that's only the most recent from Tmobile, but not from RIM/BlackBerry. That will help you greatly if you are brave enough to do the update (took me some time to convince myself to do it).

    ok can't promise this will fix the slow SMS (which could be caused from an overall slow Pearl) but makes the Pearl function better, which should resolve that also.

    I highly suggest read through the entire thread (a bit long, but many questions were asked there that you might run into). If you have any problems not covered there definately ask.

    The process to do the update is fairly easy. First download it from the link on that other thread. Install it like a normal Windows program (close desktop manager if it is open). Search the computer for "vendor.xml" and delete it (should only be one). After that connect the Pearl, run desktop manager, do a backup (the upgrade does it for you also, but always better to be safe). Then you can click Application Loader, it should see the update available and prompt you for it.

    Re: SMS problem...

    I had the same problem with mine up until about 2 hours ago, I noticed I had changed my Number of previous items to 50, I hadn't thought anything about it. Until it became really, really slow. I changed that option to 5:

    Go Options
    SMS Text
    Number Of Recent Items.

    I also went into Security Options and disabled Content Compression. It made my BB a lot faster.

    Hope this helps,
    Thirty.

    Have you deleted the extra languages? That usually frees up quite a bit of memory..

    The above commentary is for entertainment purposes only. If this was actual joke the tone you just heard would have been followed by emergency response information. It's supposed to be fun people.
