    How many applications do you have installed? What is your File Free Memory at when it is running slowly? What Operating System are you currently running?

    Press alt + shift + h to get to the help screen. Should display your file free memory and your OS version.

    App version is 4.6
    It should say 4.6.0.XXX. Need the last bit of it.

    18416121 bytes is roughly 17.5Mb of file free memory which is pretty low.

    Menu - Options - About - Check the 3rd line from the top.

    v4.6.0.xxx (for ex: v4.6.0.167) This is your OS version. Please post it back.

    Do a battery pull to free some memory and make sure you close applications properly after use. ie, select the "close" option from the menu ...

    Do a battery pull, tate the battery out with the device powered on for 30 seconds and replace. Check your file free number again and you will see that it has gone up. Its a good idea to do a battery pull regularly.

    You should also ensure that you close your applications properly after use by going to menu and selecting close. To check which applications are running in the background go to menu > switch application. The browser, call log, homescreen, bbm. And messages folder will all show. Leave them and close any other apps which may be running unless they are in use at the moment.

    I'm at work currently so my replies would take the same amount of time as they are on here.

    Follow Hazysky's instructions and if they do not help, I would consider maybe upgrading your OS.

    Please do some research before upgrading the OS and do it when you feel comfortable with the device.

    Could be, but the browser is one of the 5 services that are always running.

    You do not have to install the latest version of the DM (Desktop Manager). I will recommend DM 4.6 as DM 4.7 seems to be buggy and lot of people had troubles using it.

    Once you upgrade to the latest OS from your current one, you will get a slightly faaster OS, significant improvement in battery life and memory management. Signal reception has also been great on the versions from .237 onwards...

    Here it is : 4.6.0.266 Vodafone UK

    Do NOT unplug the device during the upgrade process. Make sure you make a back up before upgrading!

    1. Download the OS and Install it on your computer
    2. Delete the vendor.xml file
    3. Start Desktop Manager
    4. Connect bold to the computer
    5. DM scans the computer and prompt to upgrade..
