For whatever the reason, every time I want to view my saved messages, it freezes. It either takes 30 seconds to load or it freezes completely, therefore making me do a battery pull. Even doing a battery pull doesn't solve the problem.
Does anyone else have this problem or to offer some tips?
You are suffering from a Blackberry with low memory. You can fix this by deleting phone call logs, some of the old saved messages, clearing your web browser's cache and possibly deleting some programs you are not using that frequent. That should help get you running faster.
