Default Slow Curve??????????

Please Login to Remove!

Hey guys... In the last few days my Curve seems slow processing when I type... any ideas? I would get at least 2-3 secs delay then the letters would appear... and also I get that "wait" icon frequently... I never experience with my Curve before. Please help!!

Thanks

How many emails/txt messages do you have on the device? You want to clear them frequently, I do mine twice a week to keep it speedy.

Second, do you have unnecessary programs open?

Third, I'm assuming you did, but did you do a battery pull?

Try those if you haven't already.

You can still be low on device memory. Go to Options >Status and post the number you have next to "File Free."

Attachments require the Blackberry Attachment Viewer. Hopefully you loaded that when you loaded the new OS. Also, not all types of files are supported.

Well, the number you posted would be around 33Mb....are you sure you typed it correctly? Thats pretty high.

If it's really 3Mb then that is VERY low and that is why you are having slowdowns.
