Default Why is my Bold 9000 freezing so much

Please Login to Remove!

Hi guys, I hope you guys can help. I'm so desperate

For the last few months my Bold has been freezing. At first I didn't mind just doing battery pulls but now it's crazy. It freezes so much throughout the day that I probably do about 12-20 battery pulls a day. What's annoying is it freezes just when I need it right away, then it takes a while to restart when I do the pull. And then, each time I do a battery pull, it drains the battery so it doesn't help that I'm consistently doing the pulls, waiting for it to restart, and having to keep it connected to a charger all day.

I'm not sure what caused this freezing. I don't save any media files on it as I use my memory card. I always clean my history and delete my messages i've already read. I know I don't have too many apps (just Dictionary.com, Wavesecure, Navita translator, Call blocker, weathernetwork, googlemap) but the memory for apps keep saying i've only 3 MB left and when it freezes more as it gets closer to 0 throughout the day. During the best times that I've had this phone, I've even had more apps than I do now and it worked fine. I've even deleted all my games :( and deleted as much as I can to keep my Bold as clean as possible. I have some calendar and memo entries but I don't think it's any more than a regular BB user has. I've seen my friends who have more apps installed in their Bold and they don't have the same problem.

I have the most recent OS (5.0) for the Bold 9000 so I know I don't need an update.


I'm not even a Blackberry newbie so this is frustrating to me not being able to fix my baby Bold. Out of all my friends with Blackberry devices, they go to me for help with their issues! So I hope you guys can help me out. What is wrong and how can I fix it. I used to be such a Crackberry addict now the thought of even having to reach for my Blackberry to use it annoys me.

Help

Sounds like at least one of your apps is running all the time and eating up memory. Make sure to close them all properly. Also could be a badly designed application or something corrupt.

You might try this:

Remove all third party apps then battery pull. Fully charge the device, operate this way for a while to note battery and memory performance. If all looks normal and back to respectable performance then add one app back, and again watch performance. Repeat adding until you find the problematic app.

Yes I've tried reloading the software :(

I suppose i'll try removing my apps and see how my Blackberry runs then.
