Question BB running slow. How to i sincrease the speed?

Please Login to Remove!

I have a 8320 BB Curve I've had it for 2 months now. I often receive the hour glass and it gets stuck. I usually have to wait about 5 minutes or take the battery out and re boot. I also have problems with trying to download or look at other applications on BB App World. Help! I've tried cleaning cache in internet. I have a 4g memory card. Help!

Your memory card and your application memory are two entirely different things.
Having too many apps open at one time can cause lag and performance issues.

Make sure you are closing the applications correctly (menu - close).

After the battery pull, how long does it take for this problem to return?

Wirelessly posted (Its All About the U!)

I am guessing that you left some apps running in the background. Make sure to hit alt + esc to check on this.

Holding the ALT button and pressing the ESC button doesnt bring up a box showing open applications?
I know it does on my bold, but I dont know if it does it on 4.5 software.
(i assume the 8330 you have is on 4.5)

you keep holding the ALT and scroll the apps with the trackball.
