Clicking on a contact takes 10-12 seconds for the menu to appear. I have worked on this issue for about 16 hours, which includes several hours on the phone with Nextel and a trip to the local service center. Background:
I support about 150 bb's in an enterprise environment. We have a BES running version 4.x which integrates with our exchange 2000 server. Some phones are Verizon and others are Nextel. All phones sync wirelessly with the BES. Problem:
When I open the address book and click on a contact from a Nextel 7520 phone it takes about 10-12 seconds for the menu to appear. This is occurring on any of the three Nextel 7520 phones that I have activated (via enterprise activation) over the course of the last two weeks. Action Taken (to no avail):
You name it, I've tried it. These procedures have been performed at least four times on three different 7520 phones while using two different user accounts (meaning two different SIM chips). I have removed the users from the BES waited at least 15 minutes and then added them back in. I have wiped the handhelds, performed a hard reset (take out battery hold down power button for 30 seconds), performed a master radio reset (take out battery again), registered host routing table, performed enterprise activation. Activation completes without error. After activation I hold
LG LG and clear the cache. Once complete I have about 460 MS Outlook contacts in the address book and >18M of free memory. Everything works great on the blackberry, but when I open the address book and click on any of the 460 contacts it is taking about 10-12 seconds for the menu to appear. While waiting the blackberry is basically locked up and rendered useless. In addition to all of this, I have reloaded the latest OS on each of the three phones. Once this didn't work I installed the blackberry desktop manager (BBDM) on another PC and tried to load the OS from there...same problem still. I downloaded the latest version of the BBDM and tried loading the OS again. Still 10-12 seconds for the contact menu to appear after clicking on a contact contained in the address book. GrrRrr! More Background:
Maybe you're thinking it is slow due to the number of contacts. I do not believe this to be the case because we have other 7520's holding >1,400 contacts and it takes about 1sec for the menu to appear. The reason I am activating these new replacement phones is due to the fact that the users' original 7520 phones either fell apart (from field use over the course of a year or two) or stopped working properly. Two of the three phones I have worked with are replacement/refurbished phones from Nextel and the third is a used phone from an ex-employee. On Monday I should have a brand new phone that I ordered to test with. What I'm considering:
I'm thinking about calling Nextel to move one of the two accounts over to a new SIM and then go through my routine again. Other than trying that I have no more ideas. Since the users have had a blackberry in the past they find 10-12 seconds for the contact menu to appear completely unacceptable. Hopefully I am on the right track here. Any help or ideas would be very much appreciated!
