BB Storm2 9550/9520 :: Slow Calendar (Agenda) - Temp Fix: Show Free Time - WHY?
Apr 14, 2010
Calendar takes ~5 seconds to load. Upon loading, another ~5 seconds till it will respond to any activity. I have it default to Agenda view, as I always have. Prior to v188.8.131.527 this was NEVER an issue.
If I turn "show free time" to ON, then it works perfect. Loads instantly, scrolls instantly, etc. However, turned OFF, it reverts to issue above.Problem is that I really don't want to show the free time on my view. Whom else has this issue, anyone? Does anyone know how to resolve this?
I downloaded the beweather free app today and it seems to work great and all but the home screen icon doesnt show the updated temperature after i refresh my beweather free... the weird thing is that it shows the updated temperature when the icon is part of the full menu of icons when pressing the menu button to see all the icons but it is not updated when looking at the home screen layout with just one row of icons if u know what im saying.
Has anyone noticed slowness with text messages? I was texting back/forth with a friend the other day and it was taking about 20 mins or so to get a reply.I noticed my 'delivery report' was between 5-10 mins to get the D for delivered.I started sending the times I was sending the messages and ask when they were received, which they were received right away however I would get the reply about 15 minutes later.Is there a known issue with text delay?
Whether it was my recent os upgrade to 517 or the new BIS 3.0, but something amazing has happened to my native browser. It went from being frustratingly slow and almost unusable to lightning fast! Its so different I have been thinking of it as a whole new app.I used to use Opera Mini exclusively, and had even gone as far as to "hide" the icon for the bb browser, but that has all changed. I haven't even booted up OM in a couple of days. Has any one else noticed this incredible change? Is it the new BIS or was my it 517 upgrade? Most pages now load in less than 3 seconds!
Not knowing the technical details of how Blackberry pushes email, I would like one of you experts out there to fill me in. I use a couple of "mail.com" accounts. Emails sent to me through those accounts can be significantly delayed in arriving to my BB. Sometimes a few minutes, but sometimes up to a half hour.
WORLD CUP SOCCER....This is just my personal theory. Since the beginning of internet browsing there has never been as much traffic as there is now due to the World Cup. I am finding that my connection speeds are hit and miss and I believe that if we look at the soccer schedule we will be able to prove this theory. If anybody, due to time zones, gets a chance to do this before I do please post as to whether proven or dis-proven.
i'm having a problem with the 2 leaks for 9550 i just installed the newest and the same problem i live in Saudi Arabia and the smart dialing says smart dialing is not available for this country numbers will be diled without modification. can someone help me or do i have to replace my 9550 with something that have this feature and + i cant modify the call forwarding it's not there in the options Q: why blackberrys always tend to **** me off
I suppose this could be a problem with the entire 5.0 os lineup but I only own a storm 2 so I don't know. I have a hidden video folder. Once you play one of the videos, it hen shows up in the regular video folder in "media". It's in essence added to the list of unhidden videos. Oddly enough I haven't figured out when they finally disappear.....and they do go away. Don't know if it's on a reboot or what.
Is it possible to have messages that I have sent show up on my blackberry? For example, if I responded to an email from my computer via outlook, is there a way to have that email also appear as sent on my hand held? How about vice versa (respond to email on blackberry, have it appear on outlook)?I know I can do this with my gmail account but not my .edu account.
I have one calendar in my Storm2 and one POP3 email account coming to the Storm. I will add another POP3 email and would like a separate calendar for this account. I have done this and see where I can select a different calendar, but all the dates / entries show up on the first calendar. Isn't there a way to associate the new calendar with the new POP3 email account? I hope I ask this correctly. I want two email accounts and two separate calendars for them and they show up on the "select calendar" page, but all the dates/ entries are on the original calendar.
Anyone know how I can change the time that I am reminded about one of m contacts' birthday? The default time is set at 4 AM and, just so everyone knows, my "day" begins at 7 AM and goes until midnight so that isnt "the beginning of my day" according to my calendar. I have alot of birthdays in my Contacts and don't want to manually change each one.
Brand new to BB, switched from Palm T/X. I use both calendar and Tasks a lot. I need them both as I use them for different things. Anyway, I have entered about 4 recurring (monthly) tasks on my Storm 2 9550 AND I enable "view tasks in the Calendar options. Despite this, I only see the upcoming tasks for the next month. In other words, even though they should be showing on the 1st of each month, they are only showing for 1 month.
So now I am on my 3rd Storm2.. Gettign very frustrated....
i have been back and forth pretty much DAILY with VZW... My phone seems to drop signal left and right... it will show full then none then full... it goes up and down all the time no matter where i am... VZW has given me 3 phones, a new phone # hoping that will solve the issue... NOTHING IS WORKING!! they have had 3 different troblue tickets opened and said there was a tower issue by my house! what a crock of **** that was... 3 BB in the house 2 Storm2's 1 tour and a VZW Mobile broadband card and my phone is the only one with this issue...
now i have my 4th phone on the way since November... i never had a problem with my curve like this.. this issue is causing my battery to drain form 4%-25% hour... (depends on the day)
I have done full wipes and restores, full wipes and manual Restores, Upgrading OS's, *228, new phone #, New phones.... i am getting frustrated because i am missing alot of calls and some days i cant even use my phone...
they also have yet another trouble ticket opened... lets see how this goes...
I finally updated my alltel account to verizon, and went with the Storm 2. So far I like it, anything I need to know about this phone?
One thing I have to ask is I noticed my battery isnt as good as my old phone, I was searching around and noticed some people switch from Global to 1XEV, what exactly is the diffrence, I switched mine but havent had a chance to see what the diffrence is. I did notice that sometimes under my signal bars that it said 1X, then went to 3G, then i caught it earlier saying searching for CDMA(i think thats what it said"not sure").
I just got my Storm 2 last Friday. I have noticed that when I get a missed call it doesn't show the number. It only shows the city and state. This feature is pretty cool, but I would rather know the number.
I ran into my local Verizon corporate store and told them the issue and they said they couldn't do anything for me...The typical Verizon answer
I've noticed with the new S2 or 5.0 OS calendar, entries use the "default" calendar. Which is great, zero duplication, syncing is always accurate, etc, etc. But the "default" calendar does not have an associated email acct with it, so it doesn't allow you to "invite" anyone to the appointment. If you use one of your email accounts, you are then adding and additional calendar, then the games begin (problems). ??? Is there a way to continue using the default calendar and invite attendee's to meetings/appointments?
The Verizon sales rep in the store tells me I can access my calendar and tasks wireless at my work without the BES by purchasing the $45 data plan. The Customer Service Rep on the phone tells me I must have the BES to access my calendar and tasks wireless. My first blackberry gets delivered today.
I use Google calendar as my default and have only ever synced this calendar with my Storm. I use Google Sync, and have all the settings set so that it SHOULD only show these calendar items. While I had issues before with GoogleSync duplicating Contacts, that seems to have been resolved (with the help of folks here) and I've never had such a problem with the Calendar.
Anyway, a few days ago I started noticing that all my calendar entries are being duplicated. Clicking around, in the menu I found that I now have the option of selecting among 4 calendars associated with the 4 email accounts I have syncing with my Storm (I don't recall seeing this beforel) I've tried moving the selection from "Show All Calendars" to only showing my Google calendar, which works for the moment, but as soon as I leave the calendar then go back in the duplications appear again.
But, here's the odd thing: the duplicate entries are showing up as being from one of my 3 Yahoo email accounts. The thing is, though, I don't use that calendar for anything and have confirmed that there are absolutely no entries in the calendar for this particular Yahoo account. I've also confirmed that I do not have duplicate entries in my Google calendar.
I've clicked around all the options and settings I can think of, searched help and here and I'm coming up blank.
Before you ask, yes I did search. I can't seem to find the option to allow syncing in both directions from outlook to BB as well as BB to outlook. Anything entered into my BB is not being synced to outlook. Can anyone remind me how to change the option to sync both ways?
I'm not sure what changed but I now cannot sync my calendar on Outlook to my Storm2. I get the following error message - "default service for your calendar no longer available." Now I sync my contacts with home PC and Calendar with Work PC so all my meeting/conference calls are in the phone calendar. All of a sudden, I will not sync the calendar.
When I go to Options-Advance-Default Services it states just my home email address. I have never had more than 1 email address and as far as I know, I have made no changes recently.
I don't know if this is a result of OS .607, but every time I get a notification, either an SMS, MMS, FB notification, etc, and I remove the device from my magnetic holster, the thing stays frozen for about 30 seconds before it allows me to put in my code and unlock the phone (btw, I use pattern lock). As I said, I don't know if its because of OS .607, but it has been happening a lot lately. It also does not flip around which also tells me that the device is frozen for a short time before I am able to put in my swipe code... or see the screen flip
Didn't know where else to put this, since Idk if it's a 9550 only thing or all BB's, but when I receive a text message I like to know when I received it, or how long ago. But whenever I tap the received message it always says received one minute ago, unless it was on an earlier date. But, if I get a text at 8am and check it at noon, then tap on it, it says received one minute ago. Any way to fix this?
