8700 .... it's just because your new application somehow interact with the start up.... and consume large memory in your fone and that's why it works slow and that sandclock appears.. remove the application... if still the same ., restore factory settings and restore ur fone..

BlackBerry Tour: How to purge deleted email messages


When you have an email account linked to your BlackBerry Tour, you can read, send, and delete email messages just like if you were sitting at a computer. And just like when you use a computer to send or receive email, your deleted emails don't get erased completely -- they get moved into a deleted items folder (sometimes hidden, sometimes visible) in case you ever want to recover them. If you know you won't need to recover those emails, or if you want to free up some extra storage space, you can purge your deleted email messages from your BlackBerry.

To purge deleted emails on a BlackBerry Tour, follow the steps below.

- Open your email folder (or the Messages folder, if you have it set up to display your emails) on your BlackBerry.
- Press the BlackBerry key (the key to the left of the trackball with seven dots on it).
- Scroll down the list of choices to Options and select it.
- Select Email Reconciliation.
- Press the BlackBerry key again.
- Select Purge Deleted Items.
- A confirmation message will appear; choose Yes if you're sure you want to purge your deleted emails.

Note: Purging your deleted items folder will only erase messages that you've previously deleted. Any emails that you have in your inbox (or in any other folder) won't be affected. If you have more than one email account set up on your BlackBerry, purging deleted items from one account won't affect the others.

How to uninstall apps on a BlackBerry Tour


Uninstalling an application from a BlackBerry Tour is a simple process that only takes a few minutes. First, find the app's icon. (By default, this icon will be located in the Downloads folder unless you've moved it.) Move the trackball over the icon and press the BlackBerry button (the one with seven dots to the left of the trackball). From the menu, select <span style="font-style: italic;">Delete</span>.<br /><br />A confirmation window will appear asking if you're sure you want to delete the program. Select <span style="font-style: italic;">Delete</span> again. You'll see a message that says, "Deletion will occur when handheld is restarted," and you'll be prompted to reboot your BlackBerry. If you choose <span style="font-style: italic;">Yes</span>, the phone will shut off and go through the cold boot process -- just like if you'd pulled out the battery. It may take several minutes for the device to fully boot back up, but when it does, the application will be deleted.<br /><br />If you choose not to restart at that time, the application's icon will be removed from the folder, but the application itself will remain on your BlackBerry until you perform a cold boot (turn the BlackBerry off, pull out the battery, then reinstall it and turn the phone back on).<br /><br />Even after you've completed the uninstall process, the application's files will still remain stored on your BlackBerry. You can find and delete these files by navigating through the BlackBerry's file system. In your Home folder, select <span style="font-style: italic;">Media</span> and then press the BlackBerry button. Choose <span style="font-style: italic;">Explore</span>, and you'll see two options: <span style="font-style: italic;">Media Card</span> and <span style="font-style: italic;">Device Memory</span>. Select <span style="font-style: italic;">Media Card</span>, then continue down the folder tree by selecting <span style="font-style: italic;">BlackBerry</span>, then <span style="font-style: italic;">app_world</span>, then <span style="font-style: italic;">downloads</span>.<br /><br />The next folder will have a name that's a combination of letters and numbers, which is your BlackBerry's PIN. Select this folder, and you'll see a subfolder with the name of the application you just deleted. (If you have more applications installed, there will be folders with their names here as well.) Press the BlackBerry button and choose <span style="font-style: italic;">Delete</span> to get rid of the folder, which is only taking up space and isn't necessary anymore since you've already uninstalled the application. If there are other applications here that you've previously deleted, you can erase their files too to free up more space.
