Seven simple ways to boost your BlackBerry

7 tweaks that ensure a BlackBerry runs better

When it comes to your BlackBerry, the more services you employ and apps you run, the more memory you need, which will eventually see slower performance and possibly even a system crash. With this in mind, we've rounded up seven tweaks for your device’s memory to ensure your BlackBerry keeps on running. And running well.

Clear your BlackBerry's browser cache

As you surf the internet, your mobile browser caches various information from the sites you visit. That information has to be stored somewhere and that takes valuable device memory. Depending on how often you use your device to access the web, your cached content may not take up much memory, but it's still a good idea to occasionally clear that cache.

You can clear your BlackBerry Browser's cache by launching the application and clicking your BlackBerry Menu key. Choose Options and then select Cache Options. From there, you can clear your browser's content cache, wipe its pushed content and erase your cookie cache.

You need only click the Clear button next to each option to do so. After clicking the button next to content cache, a dialogue box pops up to notify you that the device is cleaning its memory. As soon as that box closes itself, your cache is cleared.
