Screen keeps freezing!

I got my BB curve 8520 in Jan 2010 and love it! Recently there was an update notification for fb and BB App World. I completed both updates successfully but since then my phone is slow or screen freezes and I can do nothing. If I take the battery and sim card out and reboot, it will work again until I try to load BB facebook (from app world) or a browser page. Removing the battery about 7 times a day chews my battery and is time consuming! Any ideas on how to solve this? P.S. I've cleared log and cookies etc.

Greetings, and welcome to the forums!



How much free memory do you have available? Go to Options > Memory and report back with the Application Memory Free Space shown.


Also, what OS version is your phone running?
