    Slowing Down- Getting the Hour Glass A Lot!

    Advertisement



    I've loaded some stuff to my pearl and it's starting to run slow? Is that because I need to upgrade the memory? I was going to add a 4gb micro sd card. Will that keep it from slowing up. I'm just getting an hour glass too much

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~Well a memory card will help out, but you want to get a 2gig. The 4 gig isn't compatible with the Pearl.
    One thing you should do is down load the OS and remove all the stuff you don't use. This will free up memory on your device. Plus once you have your memory card you can move all your pics, music, etc. over to the card. That will help too. Let us know if you need any help. Feel free to pin me if you need assistance.

    are you using a ota theme? i had the same problem when using themes, and ended up going back to the zen one that comes with the phone. it's been ok since.

    I'm not using any themes. I only have one ringtone and the handago multiple alarm. I have one picture. Other than that, it's free. Can I clear cookies and things like that?

    What programs/lanuages can I get rid of that come standard on my OS?

    When you get the hourglass, do you also get any error messages?

    I would remove all languages that you don't need (Options/Advanced/Applications, click on the one you want to delete and select delete.

    No error messages. I'm just wondering if I loaded too much "junk" when I was trying to figure this thing out.
