blackberry curve 8530 browser problems

i recently upgraded to an 8530 before the holiday. when i first received the phone i was able to access the web at a reasonable speed using the built in browser. now, few days later, the browser is extremly slow and/or non responsive. ive tried to open my home page ( and left the phone alone for 15 mins and it still shows loading. ive looked up info on google about disabling some settings, but its still not working. anyone else having the same problem? or have a solution for it? any info would be greatly appreciated. happy late tday!
