N80 – Freezes No More

I’ve had a Nokia N80 for just over 2 months now and it’s a great phone, does everything I want, has WLAN support, cameras good. After using it for about a month, I noticed it started to lag a bit when sending a SMS message, just for a few seconds until I could use it again. Because I had over 1400 messages in my inbox, I thought that was why, so didn’t think too much of it.

As time went on, the lag increased, leaving my phone unusable for upto 2 minutes after sending a message until it would respond again, which as you can guess got quite annoying! I tried clearing out my inbox, disabling the phone log, making sure no other applications were running, but still the phone would freeze even when sending the shortest of messages. 🙁

I looked around on the internet and found out I wasn’t the only one with the problem, although it seems I am one of the worst hit, as most pople were just moaning about 15 – 20 seconds lags.

Well I have now finally found the solution 😀 On the 20th September, Nokia released SMS Accelerator’, which does exactly what it says on the tin. Users have reported it speeding up loading other parts of the phone such as contacts etc, but I noticed a massive improvement from sending a message. I know have access to the phone, just 2 seconds after sending a message! That may not sound too amazing, but compared to upto 2 mintues, its a brilliant improvement!

So thanks for listening to our problems and responding with a fix Nokia 😀 For anyone who needs it, the link is below. When installing it does wait around the 100% progress mark for a while, just leave it to finish, it sorts itself out after a while.
