Sorry I forgot to say that I didn't think it was a memory issue either. My numbers are:
file free 32664419
file total 83623836
Any ideas/suggestions would be great!

Hi and welcome to the forums,
Are those numbers from after the battery pull?
Also go to options status and send the battery charge percent.

Thanks for your help. I just pulled the battery again and the numbers are:
File Free: 34636721
File Total: 83623936
Also, does anyone have a suggestion as to how many "number of previous items" is a good amount for the SMS text messages? I like to keep all my messages in the same thread like my Treo did but maybe that's a problem.
Any help is greatly appreciated since Sprint is NO help!

Those numbers look good. However that is after a battery pull, which resets the device.
I do not know your experience level, so if you know this I'm sorry but please read and let me
know if this applies.
Most people close the applications by pressing the escape or red key. This does not close the applications.
Each application has a CLOSE option. For instance if you are in the calendar hit the menu key (spotted key) and scroll down to the bottom CLOSE is listed. Go through each application and press close. Go into the browser press menu and options select cache operations clear all categories and hit escape it will say cleaning memory.
If you have this option use it. Go to options - security - memory cleaning - enable it. The BB will now clean memory when idle for 5 minutes.
you will have an icon on you screen for memory cleaning make sure you press it. Make sure you use the CLOSE button each time you are done with an application.
What may be happening is that your free memory at the time of the occurrences if really low, If that is the fact, the BB will delete the items you mentioned in "self defense" mode. When you have this happen check your file free numbers immediately, to see if it's low.
This link references maximizing memory, and address keeping messages.

so i'm experiencing the same problems - my blackberry is slow, and its loosing messages.... really frustrating as i have just recieved a new one and its the same as my old one.
I am a complete novice with this thing; i wanted to transfer data from my old phone to my new - all i wanted was the darn phone book / contacts. seems i might have brought a load of crap across....

Mine's really slow too, it got slower when I changed the theme from the AT&T theme to the blackberry (BB Dimension Zen) theme that came with the phone, which doesn't make sense since you'd think blackberry wouldn't make a theme that's slow..
here's my numbers at this moment
File Free: 11010788
File Total: 64356352
seems to me there's not much room left in the memory, but I don't really have many applications... so I don't know whats taking up so much... is it the messages and how many I let it hold? thats the only thing I can think of...
