Question about AT&T Blackberry Curve 8300 Smartphone
Tip: BlackBerry Losing Text Messages or Call Logs?
Are you having issues with your text messages vanishing without deleting them? Or maybe you notice your call log is suddenly empty? Both of these are symptoms of a full memory. What can you do to avoid this? Clear out as much as you can from your BlackBerry. Move pictures, ringtones, music, and videos to your microSD card if you have one. You can even set your camera to save pictures there by default. Delete programs you do not use. I often download a free trial
or try out freeware that I discover I don't need or like. I often forget about these programs which are taking up my memory. Make sure to remove them either using Desktop Manager's Application Loader or under Options, Advanced Options, Applications. Keep your log clear. The BlackBerry keeps a log for trouble shooting. Just hold down the alt key and type lglg from the homescreen. Once the log comes up go into the menu and select clear. Make sure to close the log when you are done. See what programs are open. This is also a great help on the battery. From the home screen hold the alt key and press the back button. You will get a banner of programs that are running. There will be some BlackBerry applications that are always running, such as phone, messages, and BlackBerry Messenger. Clean out old e-mails, text messages, and call logs you don't need. I often accidentally save an e-mail or a text. I try to check my saved messages regularly and get rid of what I don't need, such as my flight info from a trip I took three months ago. Check your themes. Do you have lots of themes installed on your BlackBerry? They take up memory. You may want to delete them in Options, Advanced Options, Applications. Remove any media you are no longer using, such as old ringtones or mp3s that have worn out their welcome on your BlackBerry. From your Desktop Manager use Application Loader to see what languages are loaded on your BlackBerry. You can remove any you don't need. Also consider removing any other the option applications that come your BlackBerry that you may not use, such as Password Keeper or BrickBreaker. If you don't use it, free up the space. Try any or all of these as they fit for you. These steps helped me stop my vanishing text messages.
