BLACKBERRY - Speed Up Your BlackBerry

If your BlackBerry is getting a little long in the tooth, then performance issues are likely a regular occurrence. But there are several things you can do to give your BlackBerry a motivational kick in the pants. Perform these actions to speed up your BlackBerry

Check your memory. If you don’t have at least 12MB free then your  BlackBerry might begin purging old messages to remain functioning. If you regularly install apps, push that to about 20MB and note the file size of the apps before you commit to downloading them to maintain that limit. To check your device’s remaining free memory on devices running BlackBerry OS 5 or earlier OS versions, access Settings from the Home screen, select Options, and then select Status. For BlackBerry OS 6-based devices, open the apps tray, select Options, Device, Device And Status Information, and then select Device Information. Alternately, you can press and hold the ALT, Shift, and H keys. View the File Free or Free Memory status, measured in bytes. Mentally add commas to determine how many million bytes are free, this is equal to the number of megabytes available.

Close background apps. To free up a few CPU cycles on a BlackBerry OS 6-based device, just press and hold the Menu button to display a list of recently opened applications, select an application you want to close, press the Menu button, and then select Close to fully exit the application. To access this list on a BlackBerry OS 5-based device, just press the Menu
button twice in quick succession. Perform the same steps to close the applications.

Clear the Event Log. Almost every action you perform on your BlackBerry is made note of in the Event Log, and it can begin to occupy precious phone memory, so it’s a good idea to clean it out occasionally. This operation is the same for both BlackBerry OS 5- and 6-based devices. Just press the ALT key and  type lglg. This will bring up the Event Log, which may look like a collection of unintelligible text entries. Press the Menu key, and then select Clear Log.

Clear the Browser cache. For BlackBerry devices running BlackBerry OS 5, scroll to the Browser application and launch it, press the Menu key, select Options, and then select Cache Operations. From this menu you can clear History, Content Cache, Pushed Content, and Cookie Cache using individual Clear buttons. All content is cleared when no more buttons are available to select. To perform this operation on BlackBerry OS 6-based devices, launch the Browser, press the Menu key, select Options, scroll to Clear Browsing Data, put a check in the Cache box, and then select Clear Now

Remove any applications you no longer use. From the Home screen, select Settings, Options, Advanced Options, and Applications, and then highlight the application you want to uninstall. Press the Menu key and  select the Delete option to remove the application from your phone. When you’re done, press the Escape key to return to the Home screen. Another way to free memory is to delete the BlackBerry Sample Video that comes preloaded on your device. To get rid of it, select Settings from the Home screen; select Options, Advanced Options, and Applications; highlight the BlackBerry Sample Video; press the Menu key; and then select Delete.
