Why is my BlackBerry losing its call logs or message logs?

Having a large amount of images, ringtones and or games stored in the device may reduce available free memory. If the BlackBerry Pearl’s memory is at or near capacity the handheld will begin to delete the oldest Call Log and Text Message (SMS) entries in an effort to free up memory space. In order to prevent this, free memory must be increased. NOTE: Saved messages will not be deleted.

(Thanks to BobRoss @ BlackBerryForums.com for collecting this information)

Determine the Amount of Free Memory on the BlackBerry

  • On your BlackBerry, go to Options > Status. That will show your amount of free memory.
  • If the amount of free memory available on the handheld is 0, the amount of free memory must be increased to prevent the handheld from auto deleting call log entries and messages.
