Why is internet so slow?

Wondering if anyone can help me figure out why my internet is so slow! Not only that but there are days when I have 2-3 tabs open in browser and it tell me that my "Browser is running low on memory, close tabs". It is really starting to get annoying. Just trying to access a post on facebook can take nearly 5 minutes.

Also, I'm adding this in here because for all I know it could have some affect on the above. Lately my phone will randomly turn off, no buttons pressed. Or the screen, which was locked, will randomly light up. I have no idea what is going on. The phone is about 2 years old now, and the case I have does not cover any buttons.

Thank you!

Re: Why is internet so slow?

Hi Ahod22,


Welcome to the BB Community...


Sometimes, if the webpage is too big, ur BB might show "Browser is running low on memory, close tabs" as opening a webpage needs cache memory which might be used up totally due to big size webpage.


Auto switching off of BB might be the cause of many reasons, one could be low memory...if possible then delete some Apps which u might not need...

with regards
