Morning Solidus -

I have a Curve 8330 and just love it.  Used to be a Palm guy (10 years) and made the jump earlier this year.  No looking back now; even with the advent of the Pre.  I hope you have had the time to roam the forums.  There's one for every BB model and there are helpful people in each forum who are here to help when anyone has questions and/or issues.

 

You will also find the search box (upper left in the forums) is a tremendous asset to be able to use.  It will allow you to search for information already posted in previous threads. Yet another great place is the Blackberry Technical Solution Center  BTSC .  There you have acces to Blackberry Knowledge Base articles.

 

So good to have you and all the other new users with us.  Make sure to bookmark us and come back regularly. Smiley Very Happy

Re: Introductions for a new member

Does MobileBanking continue to run in the background unless I exit?  Seems like my battery really dropped.  And I quess that if I want to use this application I will have to patiently wait to redownload and then activate each time.  Seems to be a new application, and, admittedly I'm new to blackberry.  So far, I am very impressed with the technology.  Dave R.

Re: Introductions for a new member

BigSwig - any applications that you do not specifically close (menu-scroll down to 'close') will remain open in the background and drain your battery.  The more you leave open, the faster your battery will drain and, over time, the more sluggish your BB will get as system resources are used up.  Couple of things to do:

 

1. Get in the habit of going to browser-menu-options-cache operations-clear content cache (this will clean your device memory thereby giving your BB more resources to work within.

 

2.  Periodically check your File Free number (options-status will give you the file free; it shouldn't get below 15000000 bytes)

 

3.  Pull the battery out with the device ON. Wait about a minute and put the battery back in. Let the BB completely restart and see if that doesn't help. Clears out the memory and refreshes the BB; like rebooting your pc.

There is also a free app called Quickpull that will do this without your having to actually pull the battery. Check it out here: Quickpull

I have mine set to restart every morning at 4:30 so my BB is refreshed and ready to go each day. Sometimes, however, a real battery pull seems to do an even better job such as when you have installed any 3rd party apps or when your BB just feels sluggish from prolonged use (like posting in these forums Smiley Very Happysmileyhappy:.
When you have anomalous behavior in your BB a battery pull often helps to clear it up too.

 

4. If the Mobile Banking app still isn't working as you like after the battery pull, try accessing your bank via their mobile website; often accessed through www.m.bankname.com

 

Let us know how it goes.  Smiley Happy

Re: Introductions for a new member

HI,

I'm a new member and I'm new to BB. I have a Bold 9700 with T-mobile USA. To be perfectly honest, I was an Android user since the release day of the G1, and I bought this BB just because it has UMA with TMobile. I couldn't get a signal in my house hardly at all so I got the BB. I figured I'd use it until android came out with UMA (witch they have) or I could buy a signal booster or something but after using it for a month or two, I don't want Android back. Even with UMA. This phone is everything I want and more. So I sold the two Android phones I had here and I've really gotten into this BB.!! Sometimes late at night I'll start playing with the settings and reading how to things on the web and 2 or 3 hours go back so fast.. lol
