What is the difference between shrinking and using desktop manager
I have been having some memory problems with my blackberry.
I had to send my phone put for repair so I did a backup file and loaded this onto a loaner phone. On a fresh battery pull I would have about 45MB of free space. This first loaner phone wouldn't allow data services, so I got a second loaner. I did the same back up and restore sequence. When I loaded the file onto the second loaner phone, the memory had mysteriously shrunk to 20mb. Telus had NO explanation for this.
I used desktop manager to delete many unnecesary files (chinese files, you tube, my space...) and this brought me up to 50mb.
Does shrinking the OS do much more? I have seen screen caps from BB Boss and it seems to delete the languages and a lot of stuff that I already have. I know some people say they have 100MB of space after shrinking, but I dont want to delete themes or font files.
So is shrinking worth is, or is desktop manager close to the same?
