Default 8120: Slowness when Unlocking Keypad?

Please Login to Remove!

On my T-mobile 8120, when I unlock the keypad, it seems to take a few seconds to unlock (with the hour glass). I made sure no programs were running also (besides mandatory ones).

Anyone else having this? Thanks

With my 8100, it unlocked almost instantly.

Yes, check your free memory! It's not always too many programs that eat it up. Spinning glass almost always means a memory struggle.

Menu>options>status (what's your file free)

Actually, I only got an hour glass a couple of times. Just tried it and no hour glass. But still takes a few seconds...

File free is: 13008882 bytes. Is that good?

Only mandatory apps + GMail app is running

13mb isn't bad on your model. But I would read the optimization thread. Generally speaking the more memory that you can free the more snappy your device will respond.

Check it out:

Good Luck!
