    Sounds like you have low memory/resources.

    What's your file free? Options > Status

    Try memory optimization first before downgrading your OS.

    When I first went to 4.5 it ran pretty rough, I just optimized a little more and it was much better... Link is in my sig if you want to try it before downgrade.......

    Yeah, when I upgraded a friend's 8310 the first thing that happened was a lot of hourglassing. I checked the File Free and deleted some apps that never get used. Ran a lot better after memory was available.

    That is really low!

    Anything under 12 XXX XXX is low, and your BB will start deleting things.

    You must have a lot of messages, pics, apps, etc in devive memory.

    i already went through and deleted the apps i don't use.
    With the 4.2 os i could have like 60 pictures and with the 4.5 i can only store like 10...
    i would rather just go back to 4.2...anything i try on this isn't working

    You can get it from my sig. Link 2

    Pictures need to be on your memory card. If you dont have one and had better luck with 4.2 then head on back but eventually you will again have memory issues with no card.

    The BB browser is so much nicer in 4.5, you get a video camera, etc.

    the video camera didn't do me any good...i don't have a media card
    and the browser took alot of getting used to

    Well good luck with the downgrade, should be quite easy. If you ever get a media card you will be off to the races, more so after completing all the optimizing you want/need..

    If you're going to put 60ish pics on your BB, then you should def get a media card. They are so cheap now. You can get a 4GB card for around $10, compare that to your BB memory measured in megabytes, it's a no brainer IMO.
