Thumbs down Blackberry Crawls (7100g)

Please Login to Remove!

I've had my 7100g now for almost three weeks and although I like the device, I have been having one big issue with it: it has slowed to a crawl. Now, when I open a new message (unread) or press "send" on a message I have composed, I can count anyhere from 5-20 seconds before the device takes action.

I figured this must be a memory problem because I was holding 30 days worth of messages and I get about 20-30 text messages per day. So I started erasing messages using the "all prior" option. That didn't fix it. It's gotten pretty irritating. I have over 13Meg left on the devie (with a little over 29meg in "file total"), so I don't see why there wold be a memory issue that would cause this kind of slowness. Anyone else experienceing this?

Secondly, several times through out the day, when I'm typng a message, the device suddenly stops and says "Input Error- restarting application", but nothing on the device, as far as I can see, chaged.

Any light you cold shed on these two issues would be appreciated!

Try reloading the software. I have 5 months (4000+ messages) on my 7100g with about 8MB left...

It runs just as fast as when I first got it.
