    So my phone will on occasion bring up the timer icon but lately it has been freezing or having the timer icon every few seconds, including during calls which means the call continues but I can't do anything. Sometimes it goes away quickly other times in can be on for a few mins. This morning alone it's happen 20+ times.

    What can I do to sort it out, I've taken the compression off picures already. Is it a memory thing?

    Try a clean wipe and reload it with the latest official 7.1 OS. Back up all your apps first.
    If all else fail, tell me when you want to throw it out the window. I'll be there to catch it lol

    You do not say... Have you tried a hard reset? Remove your battery and put it back, that should do.
    It is a memory thing.

    Updating your OS to 7.1 is a good idea as well. But you will also need to pull your battery every now and again

    It's amazing how much a "battery pull" fixes!

    I wish BB would incorporate a "pull" feature in the BB10 phones without having to do a physical pull or install an app.

    Wow......I'd first say to try to stay as updated as you can with os releases from your carrier. Also install restart me, it does the restart without a battery pull. You can search the forum for how to load unoffical os releases as well, however the lastest leak for 9860 has been made offical from Telenor Norway. I think a battery pull should set you straight for now, but an os update is recommended as well.

    Install DeReset. Set it to reboot the phone once a day.

    Install Memory Booster and set to auto.

    Remove unused apps.

    Do a battery pull. Leave battery out for a few minutes.

    Start phone. See if this all helps.

    If not start uninstalling apps until you have at least 100 megs free.

    If all fails from above, wipe the phone and install 7.1. Either way if you are on anything older than 7.1 upgrade. Leave out apps and languages you do not need when installing the OS.

    I just did the upgrade (no wipe) and so far so good.

    If your phone is "hour glassing" constantly then it is a memory issue. Whenever you see the hour glass icon during regular operation, it basically means that the phone is struggling to free up enough memory to complete whatever task it is trying to complete.

    Everyone has given good advice here already so I do not have much to add. Try wiping your device and installing the latest official OS. Make sure you don't have apps running in the background. Go into your application settings and see which apps are hogging your memory.

    Might think about shrinking the OS (BBH Tool or BSAK) too to add extra space. Remember - these are not I-phones or Androids, we have highly limited application space and due to Java addressing, the device begins to slow when that memory pool begins to fill. I find that at 220-240 megs the device runs best, when it leaks memory to about 140-160 megs all heck breaks loose.

    Dump Blackberry and go with the Samsung Galaxy Note. I did and couldn't be happier. The Note is what a true professional's phone should be.

    This is someone who should just go far far away. He likes looking like a dork holding that slab of a phone to his head.

    Our IT Dept took one look at that SamSlab laughed and moved on.

    Just like them..you should move on....

    Tim - no offense but Samsung is very popular. Slabs are very popular and no analyst or tech bloggers are currently wondering if Samsung has shot themselves in the foot too many times to stop bleeding to death. How bout you try a response like, "I'm not a fan of Android or Samsung. That device in particular seems like an awfully large slab. Telling the OP to just move to a different platform is not particularly responsive to the OP or helpful in trouble shooting his issues..."

    Just saying. Loaded words like dork and phrases like you should move on, just lead to a degradation in conversation and causes board flight. Finally - those who are so militantly pro-blackberry often turn off prospective BB users and have the opposite of the intended effect.

    The newer the OS, The better the OS. Update it, and start enjoying your phone.

    Start Here:
    http://crackberry.com/official-black...telenor-norway

    Someone says "Use an Official OS", ignore them.

    Someone says "Delete Apps and Shrink your OS to make room", this will not hurt but its not a cure for a phone that needs a fresh new OS.

    Someone says "Buy a different Brand", ignore them.

    1) Do a complete backup using BlackBerry Desktop Manager.

    2) Install the .342 OS on your computer.

    3) Install BBSAK on your computer and "Wipe" and "Factory Reset" your phone.

    4) Restart your computer.

    5) Delete both vendor.xml files on your computer. The locations are in my signature.

    6) Right Click the loader.exe file and click "Run as Administrator". Be patient, and the computer should start the update process.



    7) After the update is done and the phone restarts you can begin setting up the phone.

    8) At some point, go to Options/Device/Storage and hit the BlackBerry Button. From there you can run the "Repair Memory" routine twice. Once on your Built-In Memory and Once on your Memory Card.

    9) Dont use BlackBerry Desktop manager to restore all your settings, that will screvv up your phone. Just restore the things that BlackBerry Protect doesnt backup. Mail, Messages, Alarms, Appointments, etc.

    10) Reinstall your apps manually. Dont try to use the restore function for your apps.

    11) Enable the Memory Cleaner in the options, Restart the phone a few times, and run the Memory Cleaner.

    You should be good to go.

    I've never been able to find a second vendor.xml file in any of the OS7.1 leaks, or any old leaks on older phones after an install.

    Also, why advise someone not to shrink an OS?
