    After the 10.2 upgrade one of my friends is having texting issues. Since she isn't computer or phone savvy i tried to find a fix for her. Saw many threads on the texting issues, none really offering a solution, except for this one post:

    [*radio noise* This is sergeant Boro reporting back *cshhhttt* Over.

    Opaaaa!
    After a few hours of extracting and trying different bars, I finally found a combo that seems to work good enough.
    If you're composing a new text message, it won't actually load the previous texts (which I can live with as long at it's speedy...which it is).

    I've compiled a small collection of bar files that I'm using with my current leak (10.2.0.1743).
    Download the bar files here: Improvement BARS for OS 10.2.0.1743

    If anyone else is experiencing the same text message lag/hang when you compose a new text, just download and install the following bars:
    sys.chat-10.2.0.433.bar [Dark Theme for SMS won't work anymore]
    sys.chatblend-10.2.0.645.bar
    sys.uri.textmessaging-10.2.0.164.bar


    I've also thrown in some other goodies into my ZIP that make this leak better:
    Android Runtime with no permabar (sorry it's the locked one, might have to use debug tokens for some sideloaded apps)
    Newest BBM from OS 10.2.1.200
    New Camera from OS 10.2.1.200 (includes new facefocus feature)
    New Clock/Alarm from OS 10.2.1.200 (includes the ability to set vibrate as an alarm)


    I'll still buy the SMS BACKUP app because I'm probably going to be needing something like it soon.
    Try this out, seems to work for anyone who has tried it.

    Thanks for the info.

    Most of my texting problems on 10.2 "leaks" were a result of doing a restore. With the official 10.2 coming, I wonder if doing a clean install with no restore would make a difference?

    Most likely yes, fresh install without restore almost always is best.

    This worked out good. My texting for the most part is okay up to this point. My next questions are:

    when blackberry releases the next newer version of 10.2, am I going to have to delete these bars? What should i do with them? and where can I find these bar files in my phone? (blackberry q10)

    These BAR files were extracted from another BlackBerry 10.2 build. I assume after the 10.1MR update that has some texting issues, there was a fix put in place, however it seems like it either it didn't work for 100% of users or it somehow was not in the build that was rolled out.
    Since the fix is already available I can only imagine that the next OS update will include it and fix all the texting issue for anyone who sill has issues. The update will replace these bars as part of core OS updste so no need to delete them.
    As for what to do with the files, just keep them in a backup folder, just in case.

    I am wondering if this three BARs solves slow text entering to text fields like BBM, browser, Whatsapp etc?

    I am suffering from this bug and only solution I found is hard reboot phone.

    As far as i know, I only had TEXTING SMS issues. But if you are having those issues these bars worked well for me, and should for you too.

    So the new update that I see TODAY for version 10.2.0.424 is released today. The update will override the bar files?

    And what do you mean by "just keep them in a backup folder?"

    Make a folder on your pc and keep the files there. Do your update, after the update if texting is back to being slow, then sideload the 3 files again.

    No clue, but there are some tools that can help you extract them I belive.

    Yes I applied this a week ago. Then I got a software update of 3 or 4 MB's from rogers, had no clue what it did. Seems it detected these 2 files were older and overwrote them! I have since reapplied the files and issue is fixed again. Just be aware if you get a small update after doing this

    Hi. Do the BAR files also apply to OS 10.2.0.1767? I updated my BB 10 software to 10.2.0.415 and have since then been experiencing text messaging freeze in the compose window after selecting a contact to send the text message to. Please help! I am tempted to just do a security wipe and just start from scratch.

    Thanks much in advance.

    HUGE!!! My text messages are BLAZINGLY FAST now compared to what they were before! I have text message conversations that go back to 2010 and they don't really slow down at all.

    THANK YOU SO MUCH! This was the missing piece for my phone (Q10 - Sprint - USA - 10.2.0.424 [Rogers From Canada] - SQN100-4). Before this tweak, my phone was jamming / freezing quite a bit (or just taking forever [sometimes taking minutes to load a text message conversation]) when dealing with text messages.

    Can anybody confirm that this issue has been resolved in later OS version, especially 10.2.1.1925 or later? I've got a client using 10.2.0.1809 on a Q10 complaining about very slow SMS and also random rebooting.
