v4.5.0.69 slowing down my bb 8800
I've been able to successfully load v4.5.0.69 to my bb 8800. problem is, my bb 8800 has drastically slowed down. i have a lot of space left on my bb. i have a 4 gb disk with around 1.9 gb's left. what should i do. anyone have an idea? its really slow!

Is it giving the hourglass often? has sped up every device I've loaded it on.

sb13 09-13-2008 09:16 PM

yes, the hourglass is coming up pretty often. is there anything i can do? also 1 more question, my battery is dying fast. i must have changed some setting but i dont remember what it was. have any idea what i can do to keep my battery lasting longer?

My guess is that it's scanning your media card. If you open the media app does it say "scanning?"

sb13 09-13-2008 09:20 PM

yes it does! what do about the scanning?

John Clark 09-13-2008 09:20 PM

How long has it been scanning?

John Clark 09-13-2008 09:21 PM

If it goes on too long...more than a couple hours then do the following:

i just loaded v4.5.0.69 so only around 7 minutes. is it going to end soon.

sb13 09-13-2008 09:21 PM

the scanning just ended! i'll see how it goes and get back to you. thanks so much!

John Clark 09-13-2008 09:22 PM

Yeah, give it some time. If you have lots of music and pictures it can take a while.

sb13 09-13-2008 09:23 PM

sb13 09-13-2008 09:25 PM

John Clark 09-13-2008 09:25 PM

A new OS may fix that issue. Give the new OS a try and post back if you're still having issues.

sb13 09-13-2008 09:28 PM
