Default Pearl freezes because media card is close to full?

Please Login to Remove!

Anyone else experiencing freezes when the media card is even close to full?

The phone works fine if I remove the card, but as soon as it's inserted it freezes the phone.

I was using a 4gb card that had music/pictures/docs stored on it and it started happening, so I switched to a smaller card, (256mb) and put just a few items on that card. (About 27mb free) It's started again.

Yes, I'm fully upgraded on the os version.
No, I don't have a lot of applications installed.
Yes, I've tried other cards and they work fine until I put data on them.

This is my 3rd BBerry Pearl (The previous two bricked on me in the last year) and I'm convinced I should have gone with the G-1.

Or, it's not too late for the G1...

Ok.

Dumped everything off, deleted the .dat files and reloaded the stuff I want back on the media card.

Doesn't make me feel any better about the phone to know I might have to do that periodically, but...
