Re: Update Software

Hi Talishawilliamson

 

 

What is device OS version ! Options > About > first set of numbers on the third line .If it is already running on OS 5 ,then please Reload your device Software but please perform a full Backup of your device using BlackBerry Desktop Software otherwise you will lose all data ,Look at this Knowledge Base :

 

KB11320 : How to perform a clean reload of the BlackBerry Device software using BlackBerry desktop software for windows.

 

Please note that Black timer or clock  sometime appear because of low memory or if any application run in Blackground.Press and hold the Menu for a few seconds, it will pop up a screen which will show all running programs in the background ,generally five will always there ( Home, BBM, Message,Phone , Browser ) look if any other apps. are running.

 

Always try to Close Applications Correctly - Avoid using the End key to close applications as this simply minimizes the application and leaves it running in the background. Instead, press the Menu key, select the Close or Exit option to exit the application.Don't leave your Browser open when not in use.If programs run in the background it will also lead to quick battery drainage.Please have a look at those Article and see if that helps :

 

 KB14320 How to maximize battery life and free memory on the BlackBerry smartphone.
