Default Question about my 8230 BB flip?

Please Login to Remove!

I downloaded a app that reboots my phone. I set it to run every morning so it reboots while Im sleeping. But every morning when I wake up it says the reboot couldnt take place because the device was holstered. So my question is how do I unholster my phone. I looked everywhere on my phone and cant find a option to unholster it with. Its probably something simple and Im just missing it but Im very confused. So if anyone knows how to unholster a 8230 BB pearl flip let me know.

Also if anyone knows any great apps let me know, Im new to BB. I already found some great ones. I downloaded QuickPull Lite getting ready to get the Pro edition of it. I also have MemoryUp Pro its worth every penny for saving memory. I also got a couple sports apps Im a sports freak. So if ya got any ideas throw em my way.

One more thing. How does the BB messenger work? Can you only chat with other BB owners. If so that sucks I only know like 3 other people with BB. Is there anyway to get in contact with other BB owners who like to chat here? But thanks in advance.

Why do you feel the need to reboot the device every day?

For apps, check the Aftermarket section and/or the App Store.

It's better if you just pull the battery on a daily basis.

If the device is holstered, it means its in a CASE or Holster.
to Unholster a device, take it OUT of the case.

A BB Flip is considered holstered when it's closed. If you want to "unholster" it, you have to leave the flip open.

Thanks I apprecciate it. Should I just set my phone to reboot a couple times a week, like twice and not everyday? Im new to BB and not sure how to keep my phone running quick. So far with rebooting and doing memory boost almost everyday its running like a charm. Let me know maybe Ill learn one day remember Im new. Thanks.

Only need to reboot when it starts acting strange. And as said above, a battery pull is the best way to reboot it. I almost never have to do it on my 9000.

As others mentioned, you probably don't need to worry about it. If everything is functioning properly, no need to reset. I rarely do it--usually as the result of updating or installing a theme or appliacation. The 4.6 and 5.0 OSs seem to be pretty stable with memory (not much loss) and the 8230 has plenty of memory.
