Blackberry Curve 8520 FREEZE!



I hope that someone can help me because my Blackberry is driving me mad!


When using BBM I type and have to wait maybe 30 seconds for the letteres to appear on the screen..  It is incredibly frustrating.


I downloaded a RAM monitor, but there doesn't seem to be a problem with available memory..


I am now trying a wipe of all APPs, but I could really use some help if anyone has any ideas..


Many thanks

Re: Blackberry Curve 8520 FREEZE!

Hi Unimatrix74,


Do you have this issue only when using BBM™ or at any other times? Does reinserting the battery help?

Some of the tips in this KB article to help increase your BlackBerry® Curve™ 8520 smartphone's free memory and increase performance may also be helpful. www.blackberry.com/btsc/KB14320
I would also advise closing any 3rd party applications that are running in the background. You can see what applications are running by holding down your Menu key.


Hope this helps.
