I am VERY new to Blackberry, as I have always had Palm. The only applications I have downloaded on my phone is: Facebook, Twitter, and Crunch SMS. I have added a 8MB card. For EVERY SINGLE FUNCTION: answering the phone, texting, moving the trackball, signing onto Social Media, EVERYTHING, this little Black Square with a "clock" hand, pops up in the middle of the screen and stops for 10-45 seconds. Sometimes, I have to wait up to 5 minutes before I can use the phone. Can anyone tell me what this is and how do I get rid of it? Thank you so much in advance. I conduct all my business with my phone. It is QUITE annoying.

You cant get rid of it, it is simply the indicator that your device is processing... Kind of like the hourglass on your computer

One thing you can do whenever any odd situations arise with you phone.
This resolves many problems including slow processing and one of the largest issues with Blackberry... memory leaks.
So ya, I would recommend pulling the battery on the device for 30 seconds or so, putting it back in and letting it load up.
See if that helps
