Default .101 and .103 OS both lag when changing profiles...

Please Login to Remove!

after both the .101 and .103 upgrades, I've experienced intolerable lags both when I change profiles and when I power the phone on/off. The phone basically gets stuck with the hourglass sign until I pull the battery, and sometimes it even drains the memory to the point of wiping my sms and call logs.

anyone else experience this or have any suggestions?

nope, i haven't had any of those issues.

maybe something went wrong when you upgraded the OS.

maybe a wipe handheld and reloading the os will fix the issue. it's worth a shot.

It's good on my end! I upgraded from .64 to .103 and the hour glass doesn't appear at all now... where before it did on the .64.

With my OS upgrades I always like to perform a backup first, then wipe using the JL Cmdr program. I then reinstall all my programs from scratch, then restore my backup. It does take longer but it seems to work out best for me that way. Not saying this is for everything, but I rarely have any problems.

I had problems upgrading on Tuesday, and had to call Blackberry support. I spoke with two different people in bb support.

Both of them recommended that you should backup your blackberry, then install the new OS WITHOUT restoring, and after the new OS is installed and bb is up and running with nothing but the new OS on it, THEN restore from your backup which you created before upgrading...

For what it's worth.... that's how I proceeded.
