So I've had my 8700c for roughly 4 years now. I'm only on my second device.

Here's what I've found to make your 8700 device work smoother.

I'm an autodidact which means I'm pretty much constantly reading. I had over 500 bookmarks at one point of random facts, ebooks, etc.

This is a list of ways to optimize your Blackberry:

-Delete your bookmarks that you never use. If you don't want to delete the bookmarks, deselect the 'Available Offline' option.

-Delete all your unused apps.

-Delete any pictures or ringtones you never use or need.

-Go to your browser Options, Cache Operations, and clear your history, content, pushed, and cookie cache.

-Here's the clincher, keep your memory usage at above 12000000 Bytes. Below that your device becomes a bit slow and lags.

I hope this simple guide helps you. Whenever my phone lags I do that and then for good measure do a reset by clicking ALT, right Shift, and DEL.

Good luck to all you Blackheads.

There is a VERY nice thread - been around for years - on how to optimize the memory on your BB. It is very thorough.

http://www.blackberryforums.com/gene...ee-memory.html

It has over 400,000 views so far...

You would think an autodidact would have found that thread.

And mine is a simpler version than his. Why be a prick to someone you never met? This one is perfect for layman like you people.

Well, I am glad you clarified that.
It wasn't clear.

Maybe it's the fact that I'm well read, well educated, and I know where my life is going. Maybe it's the fact that my intelligence quotient is 137. Maybe it's the fact that you guys like being pricks to people who cannot do anything to you because of the anonymity of the internet.

Maybe that's how.

Someone with a 137 IQ obviously has so much to give. I can't believe how lucky the forum is to have you. How about sticking around and helping some people out with their blackberry problems?

Did your mom not hold you enough so now you have to condescend people on BBForums?

Don't tell us how smart you are, show us. Really smart people don't have to talk. If you have to tell us you are not an asshole, well ...

Show us some of that brilliance. Plenty of people need help.

Sorry to see you go, Koz. Our loss, I'm sure.

Not you, NJBlackberry. I'm done with him. As for you, I have posted trying to help others. But people like NJ try and ruin it.
I'm not done with this site, I'm done with this thread. Goodbye.

Well, we look forward to it. Hopefully you will post something that wasn't posted before. That would be a waste of your superior intellect
