    8800 slows down

    Advertisement



    I have been using my 8800 as a modem recently.

    Yesterday, I noticed it has really slowed down: for example when I opened a message it would take ages, and opening apps would take just as long.

    Then I recalled reading somehwere here that I should delete call logs, so I did that, alongwith deleting messages, sms, unwanted apps etc... no help, still as slow!!

    Finally, I did what is normal Nokia practise: I pulled out the battery and did a hard reboot!!

    Lo and Behold!!!! My 8800 is back up to speed....

    But,

    There must be another way of doing this, and why does it slow down in the first pace?

    Anyone with any insight?

    A lotof it has to do with your browser cache. Especially if you are using it as a modem. Turning the phoen off does not clear the cache, pulling the battery does. you can do it by going into the browser and hitting menu, options, cache operations and clear the cache and cookies.

    Actually cleared the browser cache on the 8800, not sure which other one to clear.

    I use a company called Celtel, based in Nairobi, Kenya

    Well on my 8100 there are 2 cache's one for BB browser and one for the tcp settings (tzones on my carrier) if you have a wap based system like that try clearing out the cache there. ( same process) If you are not sure what program it is go to menu, options, advanced options, browser, go to the default browser config and press the trackball, whatever the other option is is your wap browser.
