Default How long is your bootup time

Please Login to Remove!

Is it just me or does the BB takes awhile booting up? Sometimes it takes longer than my laptop from off to the log in screen. It does boot up everytime but it can take upto a minute when I remove the battery to take the MicroSD memory out to transfer movies and music over to it. (I know I can do it via USB cable but its much faster even with the reboot to take it out and copy my data over).

Usually no more than a minute for mine, but it depends. If you are starting up from a fresh OS upgrade, it can take several minutes

Neverl8 - do you use the mass storage mode and access your SD card as a removable drive from windows? If you are using the destop manager to transfer I can understand your complaint about slow loading - otherwise I find no difference in access time with the card in the phone.

No, when I first stated 10 sec, I was referring to booting after the original boot after taking the battery out. It takes about 20-30 seconds to boot after I pull the battery.

It takes so long that I can't look at it. I have to put it down and walk away or I'd panic and think I had broken it

I usually just leave mine on 24/7. However those times when I have booted it from being completely off, it's taken far more than 10 seconds. I would guess somewhere around a minute, since before I turn mine off I first turn off the wireless connection then the device.

Regularly 15-20 secs. After battery pull 30-40 secs.

mine after battery pull is average 2 and a half minutes... I cannot understand why. i do not have many 3rd party programs on it either - just google talk and yahoo, not many emails/sms's (less than 20 ever) and no pictures - they are all on the memory card

Yes on the DM on tranfering, much faster pulling the card out to manually transfer. I have a 2GB card and several movies and music I swap out and if I use the DM, it would literally take 1/2 hour.

PS: and to beyondalegend, I can't stop looking at your avitar
