    Why is BBM so slow on the updated-to-new-IOS? It was slow on previous version as well to be clear. It is so slow it's not worth having but if I can fix it, I love using it.

    Bettsee,

    First off, welcome to CrackBerry!

    Did you update the 4s to iOS 8.1.1?

    I think it's more of a processing/memory issue on the 4s. The hardware is pretty dated now and just can't keep up with the newer iOS software and the BBM software.

    The first thing I would try is double tap the home button and close all of the other apps out and see if that speeds things up.

    A second thing to try is a hard reset on the phone. Hold down the power button and the home button for 10-15 seconds or until it reboots.

    The last thing I would suggest is to try turning off motion and animation effects. In order to do it, go to Settings > General > Accessibility > Reduce Motion, and turn the switch off.

    Good luck!
