How To Easily Speed Up Your Lagging Blackberry Storm

I discovered this last night, after messing with a few files on my blackberry, and after doing this, my blackberry was twice as fast as it used to be. No joke. So I just thought that I would share this lovely secret with all of my readers.

-In order to do this, you will NEED to download Filescout.

If you havent already, you have no idea what you are missing.

Download Filescout

This is the most simple, yet easily overlooked, way to decrease the lag time of your Blackberry Storm, Pearl, Tour, ect.

The speed of any mobile phone or computer is determined by the amount of RAM that is available to it. (RAM stands for Random Access Memory)

RAM is the amount of free memory that your device uses to run programs and access files. So then it’s fairly obvious that the more RAM you have, the faster your device will run.

The Blackberry Storm has 128MB of flash memory, but a lot of it being used by extra photo samples, videos, and ringtones that came pre-loaded from your carrier. So what we are going to do, is clear out some of these files to increase our RAM.

First of all, open Filescout.

Next, you should see three folders. Open the one entitled, “System”.

After this, open the Samples folder, which should be at top of the list.

Now we have access to all of the pre-loaded samples that I told you about earlier.


Use extreme caution when deleting these next files, as they cannot be restored.

First up, the Sample Contact Pictures.

If you are like me, you have never even thought about using any of these hideously ugly drawings as icons for your beloved ones.

To delete these, open the contacts folder and hilight a picture, then open the menu and press, “Delete”. I suggest you do this for all of the pictures.

Next. The Babylon AD video.

If you don’t delete this file, then just stop right here.

This video is so enormously huge, it’s like RIM wanted our blackberries to run in slo-motion or something.

I never like deleting anything. If I could, I would keep every file I have ever used.

But trust me, you wont be needing this Babylon AD video. So open the “Videos” folder and delete this using the same method as before.

Finally, the sample song.

Open the music folder, then delete the “World Traveler” song or whatever. That is, unless you listen to this all of the time; In which case you need some counseling.

Now, you’re  done! Congrats!

I would suggest that you leave the Folder Icon, MMS, picture, and Ringtone folders alone, as they are some of the more useful sample files.

If you deleted the Babylon AD movie, then you should see a significant increase in your blackberries’ speed.

Now, there’s one more thing that I need to clarify here. You may think that by inserting an 8GB SD card, there’s no reason to worry about deleting any of these small files. But you are wrong.

The only RAM that can be used by your Blackberry, is the internal memory. Thats why you’re blackberry doesn’t start running fast when you put in an SD card. Now this is important, whenever you store pictures, ringtones, or videos, be sure to save them on your SD CARD! Not the internal memory.

Keep the internal memory file-free and you’re blackberry will be running faster than it ever has before!

    This guide was meant for the OS 4.7

    Im guessing you have the OS 5.0

    Sorry to tell you this, but the new OS 5.0 Update LOCKS ALL OF THESE FILES!

    Thus rendering it impossible to delete the system files.
    I have searched far and wide for a way to delete all of these preloaded files on the new OS, but to no avail.

    Even the creator of Filescout has realized that it is impossible to unlock these files due to the higher level of restrictions that RIM has put on the device.

    The only advice I have for you is to delete any preloaded videos/trailers included with the new OS and from now on… Only store your pictures/song/video files on the SD Card.

    Hope this was helpful-

    It didn’t work for me. It says: The system Folder in OS5 is READ ONLY – that shy the file ……..png.rem can not be deleted.

    I even paid for it and it is a waste of my money.

    Can you help me please?

  5. Justin Boyd says:

    I’m really sorry, but once you have upgraded to 5.0, the files become locked, and cannot be deleted using filescout…
    There is a chance that the developer will figure out how to unlock these files in the future, but at the moment, they are inaccessible.

    Again, I apologize for my post being misleading and causing you to purchase filescout,. I will add a note at the top of the post to warn future buyers.
