Pulling the battery to reboot will clear the memory is the most recommended and easy thing to do.
Ensure that you close all of your programs that you have been running. Hitting the red power button to close programs doesn't always close them, just puts them in the background. select the blackberry button next to the green button and hit it again and go to switch applications.
Then select apps that are running in the background and click the blackberry button again to bring up a menu and select close.
You will definitely want to turn it off sometimes. Even if it's a standalone OS for Blackberries, you may want to reboot it to free up some hoarded memory.
You may also have a sluggish battery. So see here.

Frozen how? You can't open it ? Blackberry can do this sometimes if you drain the battery completely.. you must leave it plugged in until opens. Or, you can try a hard reset doing this:
  1. Perform a hard reset to wipe all data from the BlackBerry Classic.
  2. Open BlackBerry Link on your computer.
  3. Connect the device to your computer using the USB cable.
  4. Select your device on the left pane.
  5. Go to "Back Up & Restore" > "Factory Reset" (Windows) or "BlackBerry Link" > "Preferences" > "Reload" > "Reload" (Mac OSX).

When i used in internet my cell phone work very selwo

Your BlackBerry is an older model and lacks 3G capability. So while it's excellent for making calls and sending and receiving SMS and emails, it's always going to be a very slow performer for internet access.

Your only fix for this is to upgrade your phone.

Do i need a usb cord to reload software 513 on my blackberry 8900

Available where cell telephones and or computer equipment is sold. You can probably purchase from a advertiser or from your telephone service provider as well.

For fastest service, I think I would check at your local computer repair shop. Other places to check ... K-mart or any of the BIG box super stores.

1991 firebird turns over slow,but always starts.

If the battery is in good condition, good connections and passes a load test, the starter may be bad. But be sure the connections and the grounds are good.

Problems with software (i think)

Enable memory cleaning by going to Settings >> Options >> Security >> Memory Cleaning

Also remove all applications you have installed since you bought it, one application may be causing the issue.

Remove any custom themes you have dowloaded, these will always tend to slow the OS down, genuine blackberry themes work the best.

You could also try wiping the phone and re-activating. If you do not have your own Blackberry server, then contact the phone company and they can do this remotely.

Blackberry Storm the keypad has become very slow to respond.

You don't have a virus. Just make sure that you get the over the air updates whenever available. The latter versions of the phone are much more efficient than the earlier ones. Try closing applications when not in use to speed operation. Press the blackberry button choose switch applications and then close the ones you are not using. You can also delete the default third party software that comes on your phone if you don't need it. For instance, if you never use Verizon navigator, take out a few messengers i.e. aim, yahoo, remove flicker (you can always get this applications back later so no worries).
