Go to options, status and see how much available memory in file free is left, should be at least 4 mil bytes, get your pictures or rings off your phone and/or any third party applications.

options>advanced options>applications>check for bb sample video and inputs/language, you can delete these applications from phone.

As long as you manage your memory you should not loose your call/sms logs again.

I'd suggest backing up your contacts and other info and then doing a wipe on the phone. To do a wipe to go to...

Options -> Security Options-> General Settings -> click the menu key and you will see the option for wipe.

If that doesn't work I'd do an OS update on the phone.

My call logs and sms messages delete automatically at midnight.


This is almost always due to the device having a low amount of internal memory. Check the link below for ways to free up as much internal memory as possible:

Missing text messages in blackberry pearl


I also have had this problem with my Blackberry Pearl. It has nothing to do with your SD memory card. First and foremost, blackberry shortchanged the pearl when it came to onboard memory size. You'll find this out when all of a sudden your call logs, text messages (SMS & MMS) and emails are deleted. When you receive a call it shows in your call log for only about a half hour and gets deleted again. To verify that it is a memory issue, go to options and click on status. If your file free is at 0, you need to free up some memory.

If you text message alot, this can happen quite frequently. Especially with MMS messages which use up alot more memory. Open your messages folder, click the menu key and click General Options. Make sure your phone is set to keep messages for either 15 days or 30 days. Also another thing is to make sure in your Camera options is that all pictures get saved to your memory card. If your pictures get saved to the phones memory, you will always have this problem until they are deleted or moved to your memory card. If you downloaded any games or applications to your phone, this can also be the problem. They make plenty of games and apps for the Pearl but didn't give the phone enough memory to use it all without eventually locking up the phone. This was my problem. I had a few games and a couple applications like Yahoo Go and Sudoku that I deleted and it helped out alot with my memory issues.

There are alot of other things you can do to help free up some memory but it would best if you just call blackberry tech support for your service provider and let them talk you thru all the steps. I've been very happy with T-Mobiles Blackberry tech support because they are separate from the normal customer service line. I've hardly ever had to wait to speak to a tech unlike the regular customer service which can take FOREVER!

I like the Pearl but these issues can certainly frustrate anyone that doesn't know how to deal with them.

Iphone SMS problems


I found this solution posted as comment on this clip:

This following solution was suggested on youtube, it worked for me. There is one negative point about it: ALL YOUR OLD MESSAGES WILL BE DELETED
If you delete your sms.db file (located in: var\mobile\library\sms) it fixes it, you can open and send\recieve sms. i think the only permanent solution is to upgrade to 1.1.3 with itunes and start again (im asuming u got the bug using ziphone, i did). i installed isms as a backup sms service incase it stops working, which it does often. you cant look at recieved messages, but good for sending sms if sms.ap is playing up

to delete sms.db i use mobilefinder on my iphone
