    when i go into media and click on pictures i always get a spinner until the menu with preloaded pictures and media comes up. then hen i go to click on media card to view my pictures i usually have to wait around another 5-10 minutes with a spinner for the thumbnails to load. then when i go to make a pic full screen it usually takes another 1-2 minutes for it to load with a spinner. all these spinners usually cause me to do a battery pull. this is a problem for me because i take alot of pictures with my blackberry (around 10-20) a day.at one time i had 400 pictures on my memory card if you need that info. i have a blackberry pearl 8100 on tmobile with a 2gb memory card in it. plz help me. thanks.

    Sound like a Memory problem, I would suggest that you make folders for each category for easier access.

    How much free memory you have on your pearl? (hit "alt" + "caps" + "h" to find out) having low memory on your device will make things to run slower.

    You can go to Options>Status to check your available memoury.

    Yeah I'm pretty sure that is only a trick for the Curve. At any rate, 14MB of memoury is decent for a Pearl. You shouldn't be having problems if you are running that amount of free memoury.... What apps do you have running??

    Yeah if you had all those running, your phone would be dead....

    Press ALT and the back key at the same time to view your running apps. If you have never done this before, chances are you have a ton of stuff running in the background, which will cause your phone to run VERY slowly.

    Not ALT delete. ALT and the back key. Looks like a curved arrow.

    No. It is not. The back key is next to the END key.

    Now. When you want to look at your running Apps. Like I said, hold ALT and the escape (back) key. When the window pops up, keep holding down the ALT key and you can use your trackball to scroll through the apps. To open an app, hover over it and let go of the ALT key. You can close it from there.

    You can close everything but BBM, Messages, Browser, Homescreen, and Call Log. Those run all the time. Close out everything else and then do a batt pull.

    thats a neat trick... as soon as it pops up after i hit it it goes to whatever app is next, is there any way to scroll through them?

    probably have it set to auto update, so you probably wont be able to get rid of it or any other program that you have set to auto update
