    Smile Trying to make my Pearl run faster.

    Advertisement



    Hi,
    I am just looking for tips on how to make it run a little faster. I am running OS 4.2.1.107.
    I have enable the hidden cleaner that i found on this forum. I have 20458012 Bytes free. Is that good or bad? Cause i notice that when i have a bunch of messages and haven't cleared my cache it goes really alot slower. Oh will adding a Micro SD card help with this at all? Can i load apps on to that card instead of my phone if i get one?
    I am new at this and i am hope that i am posting this in the right place! If not i am sorry?!?\
    Thanks!

    Try downloading 'memoryup' and 'benchmarking' softwares. They are available under 'download'. Cheers.

    20mb free is plenty. More won't make it run faster. Get a memory card for pix. What will slow it is any programs that run in the background. From homescreen hold the shift key and push back button and see what's running. 5 programs will always run. If there's other stuff, like IM, close it out when you finish using it.

    Yeah with 20MBs free you should be okay. Dont need to worry about freeing up any more free space for speed. Do what TheBigNewt says and you should have a fast BB.

    Still got all preloaded pictures and ringtones.

    After about 5 days without deleting my messages, when i compose a message it takes a really long time to go to the screen where i can type and then i start typing and it wont show up for a few seconds. Like i will type a full sentence and i won't show up. Then all at once it shows up and i can see the words racing across the scree trying to catch up. It does the same exact thing when i am typing a number into the phone

    According to your profile you are running a pretty old version of the device operating system (.64), which as I recall had known issues with memory leak (available memory would decrease over time requiring a battery pull/reset in order to restore lost memory). My guess is this is the source of your issue. I suggest you go ahead and upgrade to T-Mobiles newest version (4.2.1.107)

    And the "How To Guide" just in case...

    I beleive you will be quite pleased with the results!

    Cheers and belated welcome to the Pinstack Family!
