Default My 8120 Pearl keeps locking up since the new OS 4.5

Please Login to Remove!

Ever since I installed the new OS my Pearl randomly go into hourglass mode and just sits there locked up for a minute or so. Anyone else seen this?

well i have the bb pearl 8100 and upgrading from 4.2xxx --> 4.5xxx made my bb a bit slower. And yes sometimes it does go into the hourglass thing, especially when im trying to open a pretty big app such as google maps, but for the most part im satisfied with the speed. I havent heard anyone else with your problem though, best of luck.

Try eliminating older 3rd party apps and older themes.

Also reformat your SD card and get rid of color pearl and soft reset.
Experience is a wonderful thing. It enables you to recognize a mistake when you make it again
