Question about RIM BlackBerry Pearl 8100

Pearl web access problem

In the past week or so, my web access thru Google or the browser that comes with the Pearl has become very very very slow, often opening to a white screen and then nothing more. I can get Google maps but that function also it quite slow. Email is OK. This is in contrast to overall very fast and smooth connections previously. Any ideas?

Re: Pearl web access problem

You are able to gain some sort of connection by using your email, so the issue does not sound internet related. try clearing out your content cache.

in order to do this, open your browser, go menu, options, cache operations and you will see 4 links at max......clear history, and clear under the content cach, pushed content, cookie cache. go ahead and press all of these....actually, depending on how much you access the internet, i would do this anywhere from once every other day, to once a week.

if this does not work, try to re register to rim. go to phone options, advanced options, host routing table......register to the BOLDED ENTRY. (in order to do this, highlight that entry, press menu and register now.) if there are no entries here, do a soft reset.

How do you change the blackberry pearl browser homepage?

Open your web browser and press your "BlackBerry" button, scroll down to "Options" folder and click it.. After opening the options menu, click on the first option labeled "Browser Configuration". After opening your browser configuration folder, scroll all the way down until you get to "Home Page Address". From here you can enter your new home page manually or you can just select the "Use Current" option that will make your Home Page the last mobile site you were on before you pressed your BlackBerry button.. I hope this helped..

Freezing Randomly

Yes it is, especially if you have a lot of programs installed in the phone. It will mostly freeze when you are using the web or a program that uses alot of memory.
