Default Emails lost on 7230.

Please Login to Remove!

Hi,
This is my first post and I have searched the forum but couldn't find an answer.

Yesterday I noticed that a large chunk of emails and SMS's on my new blackberry vanashed, except for the registration and welcome emails, emails from the day before, and two emails saved. I logged on to the vodafone webclient and they are still on there. And they are. There is no auto ageing set up, nor is the blackberry set up to delete emails after a set period.

The problem occured coincidently (perhaps) when the blackberry seemed to run out of memory. There were not too many emails on there but being new I think I downloaded a few too many extra programs which I have deleted, except for google talk.

I was getting a lot our hour glasses and all that. And when I was trying to delete the install apps from the blackberrys Applications section it came up with "...java...out of memory" or words to that effect, before I managed to get them off and reset it.

Any ideas? It's no big loss but I don't really want this to happan again as it's a little iffy. Do weired things happen when you fill up the memory?

Thanks
Nick

No coincidence at all; that's the way it is designed. You run out of memory, and the BlackBerry will start throwing out messages.

The 7230 has 16mb of RAM (if my memory serves be right). You have to minimize the programs (and language packs installed) so you don't run out...

And that skimpy 16 MB is shared with the OS, apps and their respective data bases, and the user's saved files. Older models like the 7230 really aren't meant to have aftermarket applications added, or for the user to save many files or emails.

Thanks for all the help you provide for us here.

I have learned a lot in a short period of time reading this forum.

As a new user of just one month this forum has accelerated my BB knowledge and been a very valuable resource.

Cheers!
