Phone keeps crashing-shows clock ticking symbol

My pearl keeps crashing. It shows the clock ticking symbol in the middle of the screen for a few seconds before being alright again. It happens all the time, every few minutes. Fixes temporarily when the battery is removed but doesnt fix the issue for more than a day.


Any help?!

Hello ginariley88,

Welcome to the BlackBerry Support Community.  


You may be experiencing these issues as a result of low device memory.

The following article outlines the Low Memory Manager and how it works:

The following article should help with maximizing your device memory:

We hope this helps.

Thank you.
