My curve is suddenly SOOO slow. I did a battery removal, let it set for a minute, then reinstalled the battery. It took 45 minutes to initialize. I've tried a couple of resets, and they each have the same result...increasingly long reaction times. I just tried to place a call and the phone wouldn't hang up. The hourglass shows up and rolls and rolls.
The only extra program I have on my BB is Epocrates. I installed it a couple of weeks ago and once I did a battery reset, I have not had any problems until today.
What can I do to fix this?
If not to difficult, try removing any third party apps. See if the issue resolves itself then reinstall.

If troy's suggestion doesn't work I would recommend a backup and them wipe of the device.
It seems to me that Epocrates is a huge program. How much free memory do you have on the device. Look in Options >Status and tell us the number. My guess is the device is out of memory.
You might to a ALT+LGL, then delete all of the logs. If that doesn't work, the other two suggestions are probably your next step.
Here's the information from the Options > Status page:
File Free 0 Bytes
File Total: 55443456
I think you're right about being out of memory. If I add an microSD card will that help it?
BTW, I'm uninstalling Epocrates, but I really would like to be able to use it. That's the thing I miss most about leaving m handheld computer. The BB beats it on everything else though.
You can't get any more out of memory than that! follow these instructions:

My personal experience with the Curve on at&t was about the same. This was on the island of Oahu. Mail was ok but the browser was taking way too long.
Last month I picked up an 8320 at T-mobile to try out on their 14 day plan to see how the UMA worked overseas and if it would be worth the switch.
What I didn't expect was the speed of T-mobiles EDGE. I was shocked and tried it next to my at&t Curve and the difference was like between dial-up and broadband. This might be because of the area that I was using it.... not sure.
When I roam overseas on EDGE the speed between the two was the same. Of course wifi is really fast on the 8320...
Thanks for y'all's help. My Curve is back to normal.
New version of Epocrates fixes this hourglass (slow down) issue. Download again at get.epocrates.com.
