    blackberry slowing down *edit* WORSENED

    Advertisement



    Ok, so I decided to run eMSN,yahoo messenger, ramble I'm, and google talk all at the same time yesterday. Since then, my phone has been slowing down tremendously. It's to the point that when someone calls, it doesn't even pop up there name cause the memory must not be acting fast enough. What's wrong???

    I've turned off all messengers.

    If you do a Hard-Reboot it should solve the problem.

    Did the Hard Reboot...nada.

    When I get calls, the names still aren't popping up and if I want to unlock my phone I have to wait for the hourglass to process everything before I can even put my code in.

    Any other ideas?

    Do a ALT-ESC and see how many applications are running. Next check Option->Status to check available free space left.

    No alt/esc on a 7100i. Checked the memory, and all is fine. I have 41,892,008 bytes free
    63,963,136 bytes total

    It's getting worse. Now I can't receive calls. My phone isn't ringing, but it's telling me that I'm missing calls.

    Are you up for a OS reload? That is what I would do next.

    Re: blackberry slowing down majorly

    I'm wiping my blackberry as we speak and am very nervous. I backed up my data beforehand, but this wait while it is "Erasing Information" is driving me nuts!

    Thanks for the help, this should work. I'll let you know if it doesn't.

    I would say its eMSN... That software is full of bugs, and wouldnt surprise me if its running your BB's CPU to max.

    Re: blackberry slowing down majorly

    Status is NOT GOOD! I wiped my BB and restarted it. I restored my BB, fired off one test message. All was good. I tried again...boom, back to square one. I'm not receiving my emails now and the thing is slowing down. HELP! :cry:

    Re: blackberry slowing down majorly

    What other programs have you installed recently? I know that QuickMedia Player was slowing down a lot of devices...

    Also, as for the messages, have you reregistered with the network yet?
