Default 8300 hours glass?

Please Login to Remove!

I just moved up (I Think) to a 8300, from a pearl. I like everything about it...... but switching between screens, and especially the Media player (overall)seems much slower. Not MS O/S slow, but not the snappy RIM crispness I have learned to love.

What gives? Any suggestions?

How much free memory on the device? Low memory is usually the likely cause of a slow device.

I would try to avoid installing apps that you're really not going to use. Free memory will make your curve respond a lot faster. And yes. That's an awesome upgrade.

I agree it is an upgrade. Dump any included software that you will not need. MAKE SURE you go thru the SetUp Wizard and dump all the languages you are not going to use. Do not instal any sfotware you do not use/need!

Pull the battery for a reset and let us know what you have for free memory!

How can I dump all the AT&T "shop tunes, ring tones, etc." software (or Links) for their services I will never use? I have no third party apps loaded. 500 addresses, 90 days of appointments.

I have 1.5 gig on my SD card filled.

What about service books?

Do a search on PTT Removal. DO NOT erase anything from your service books!

GHo to OPTIONS, ADVANCED OPTIONS, APPLICATIONS. Here you can delete Brickbreaker, memopad, password keeper and tasks but no more. Delete more and you can cause problems.

Did you do the setup wizard so that all of the other languages were erased?

Did you pull your battery to reset?

How much memory do you have now, free?

Are you closing programs when you are done or just keeping them open in the background?

Your SD cards makes no difference in how fast your device works.

Actually, all those icons he's referring to ARE service books which, if deleted, will disappear. They may come back, though. You can delete any service book (other than [desktop] service books) and they will push back with a "Register Now." Even the ones you are referring to may come back. If they do, just hide them.

Hmm, are you saying things like Brickbreaker will come back? Never has on me. One of the first things I get rid of.

I am not sure the OP has pulled the battery, yet?

I was referring to the "Shop AT&T ringtones, etc., links for their services" that he mentioned. Those ARE service books pushed to the device. They don't load through apploader. They won't go away with a battery pull.

Edit: And, yes, I remove BrickBreaker and Help from the AppLoader. I never said they come back.

Not to hijack the thread but can I go to the applications list and delete HELP without causing any problems?

22178490 out of 55443456 after battery reset and app deletion. That seems really low considering this is a new phone with only 500 contacts and no email or browser 'data' yet.

My 8310 is showing 27301195 free

Has this solved your hesitation (hourglass) problem?

From a cold start all Blackberrys take a good bit of time to boot up. Good news is it does not have to be done often.

RIM devices are a compromise. Faster processors take MORE power. RIM is rather conservative and went for dependability and left the rest for the WM devices!

Hope you are on the right track. You should seldom see the hour glass after booting up.

22 MB is a decent amount of memory free. You should be fine.
