    Is anyone else having problems with their BB running slow at times? Just today she appeared to have a mind of her own, taking way too long to complete the simplest of tasks. Also, why do my recent send and received SMS (text) messages just go away on their own. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

    Checking free memory under settings>status, if it is low search forums for memory leak or John Clark's freeing memory.

    Pull the battery and reboot when you notice the hourglass spinning like that.

    And your texts?

    I had this happen a couple of times in the past. The battery pull fixed it as jsanders stated.

    The hour glass means low memory! Get a memory card for your media and follow john clarks info.

    You possibly have too many open Apps running in the background.
    Menu > Menu > switch applications. if there are more than 5 Apps running, then you'll need to do a Battery pull to close out some of those Apps.

    I know exactly how you feel. I have a memory card and mine still runs really slow most of the time. I went through and cleaned out most of the apps. I have facebook, bb apps, bbm, and google maps.mos of time it says I have 6.9 MB free but when its running really slow it says I have 0 free. I take the battery out and it starts running better. Just waiting to get a new one.
