Default More frequent "wait clock" appearing

Please Login to Remove!

I am starting to see the "wait clock" appear more frequently and I wonder if it's a memory issue or something I am doing?

It appears in the middle of composing a text, not just when switching apps or doing something intensive like loading photo or music.

Anyone else?

No running apps, but the battery pull worked.

Must be memory leakage or something and the battery pull resets it?

I'm happy,thx!

no, your memory will start at a certain level after a battery pull and then level out maybe 10mb below that number.

if you get to a low amount, you need to clear memory.

these things include:
clearing browser cache, deleting messages (of any kind) both sent and received you dont need anymore, and making sure you eixt applications properly.

Depends. You can check your application memory. If it's below 15MB you should.

Some people do it once a day. Some once every two days. Some once a week.

Depends on your phone, the applications you use.

Or you can just "feel it". How do you know when to reboot your computer?

I cleared out all my messages, phone log, and brower stuff and went from 113mb to 126mb. Nice little jump.
