    I have read...(and can't remember the details)...of folks having issues with stormslider. Delete stormslider...and see if that fixes the issue.

    Make certain you have the most up-to-date versions of your 3rd party apps, because some don't run well on 5.0.0.607

    If you have some older apps that you don't use...delete those too.

    Trial and error is the only true way to see if you have 3rd party app conflicts.

    Let us know what you find....

    ...almost forgot...keep an eye on apps that you have running "in the background" as that can cause memory issues...as well as suck the life outta your battery.

    Will do. Thanks for your help. So far I've updated PageOnce, Skype and working on BeWeather. Wish there was an easy button to check for updates on all but I guess that's what I get for downloading so many apps. lol

    How can I find the apps that are running in the background? I think 1/2 of my apps do just that.

    Hold down the BB button.

    The only apps that will always run in the background are Phone, messages, home screen, and browser....and BlackBerry messenger if you use it.

    The only 3rd party app that I use that runs in the background is Social Scope (twitter app).

    Find any other, make sure you CLOSE them completely.
