N80 Problem: Messaging

This is my first post here in allaboutsymbian.com, i constantly read this forum for updates and some problems that i encounter.

Anyway heres my problem, a month ago my girlfriend bought a silver N80 with a firmware version 3.0614.0.1 for about a week she has no problem with it, she was so happy. After a week, she complained to me that it was really slow on sending a txt message and it took her 20 seconds to send a single message (note: no other programs running in the background). Since we're both apart, i adviced her to soft-reset her phone by doing *#7370#. So, the problem was gone and we're both happy. A week after she complained of the same problem again, she did 4 soft-resets just about two weeks.I told her that when we meet i will flash her phone to a new firmware version 3.0617.0.6. Coz, i was thinking that i was a firmware bug. After flashing, the problem was gone again. She has a new firmware and shes very happy with it.

Days after flashing her phone, i bought also N80 for me, i got a new firmware version, the same as her. The phone was amazing and i was pretty happy to have it. So we both have new firmware but the problem arises again, not just her N80 but also mine, i compared it and it will send txtmessage for about 20 seconds.

I've read all of the threads here in N80 forum but i got no answer so i decided to make this thread. So, im gonna ask you, who among you guys have this problem? how did you manage it? Because when i bought my N80, it sends txt message pretty fast it wont last for 5seconds. And if you're thinking that its low on signal, no, signal is full.

Anyone who can help me with this? Coz im pretty tired of waiting for new firmware release.

try setting the log size to 1 day, I know this speeds the phone up, not sure though if it will help your problem, worth a try though, you can always change it back if it does nothing.

I remember reading that it's just a quirk of the Symbian OS... the speed is avg for simple tasks like messaging, etc. I'm just reiterating what I heard though.

I have the same problem! i've been resetting my phone over and over again, and by doing this, it only solves the problem for a while, maybe a week. then it slows down again. This is probably the worst phone i've ever had.
Somebody please help. It takes ages to send messages!!

This problem sucks! i hope nokia knows about this and will fix it till next firmware upgrade. I doubt if its a network problem... im in philippines so im on Globe. for those who have this problem.. theres a temporary solution for it, you'll just hard-reset your phone by doing *#7370#. It'll be as fast a lighting again but it freezes again a week or two.

By the way people, how many messages you save on your sent items? 20 is the default right?

i was thinking maybe just deleting your intire sent items and inbox, or maybe stop it from saving in your sent items

Even deleting inbox and sent item messages and also even uninstalling all programs that i can remove. Theres no way it will lessen the freeze time. It sucks when you have 3 or more messages incoming at same time. you can read the second message for 1 minute until the first reply is sent. I hope nokia will fix this.

Thumbs up

Try actually formatting the phone. I had the same problem. I did a reset followed by a format and the problem has gone (been well over 2 weeks now).
  1. reset with *#7370#
  2. turn off the phone
  3. hold GREEN key (send), 3 and * down
  4. press the power key whilst holding the keys down to turn the phone on (then let go of power)
  5. wait for the phone to boot (whilst holding the keys)
  6. eventually the "set time zone" screen will appear

After doing this you will lose ALL of your settings and any files on the phone but it should be a whole lot quicker to send texts.

i set my save sent messages to 600 so i can read what i have sent to people when i've been off my head :P but deleting inbox and sentbox doesn't make it any faster, this is another bug with the phone :(
