Default Spinning Wheel of Death

Please Login to Remove!

Does this happen to anyone on a continuum basis? I know about doing a battery-pull and all, but it seems to happen at the most inopportune times.

For example, today a call came to my phone - it light up - but instead of caller ID showing - it showed the wheel. I missed the call, luckily they left a message. It also happens when I scroll through menus/contact lists.

It is very similar to a computer with low RAM.

I have about 5 apps + 1 gb of music on a separate card + two email accts.

I've also used the "memory cleaning tool" to no avail.

I am using v4.5.0.175.

Any one know of a fix/solution?

Thanks!

Spinning hour glass = Low memory.

Apps do not install on media card. The 5 apps are on your device memory which is what is probably low.
