Red face Brand new curve lagging?

Please Login to Remove!

I dunno whether or not I'm just being paranoid but I think my brand new curve is lagging a little. I dunno if I should return it or just deal with it. For example, when I play brick breaker is ball or the bar slows and speeds up for a split second. And when I go to the main menu on my phone the little hour glass shows up but I never have any applications running other than the ones that have to and I haven't downloaded anything on my phone.

is there anything I should be looking for or anything I should do? anything helps

Are you in an area where the signal is weak? That can slow it down. You can try a battery pull and see if that helps. With the device powered on, remove the battery for 30 seconds and replace.

Are you new to blackberry's? Most apps on blackberry will stay open after you click the red "end" key or the escape key. Having too many of these apps open at the same time will seriously slow you down (just like being low on mémory on a PC). The "application switcher"(menu-menu from home screen) helps to see what's open at any given time. Also, pull the battery once every couple days to keep things smooth, or after doing heavy picture viewing, which seems to eat my memory up.
