    Default Message saying memory full....but it isn't

    I recently got an error message saying my memory was full and it took me through the spanish language deletion steps. However, my BB is only a few weeks old, and I really haven't downloaded all that much. Here are my stats:

    Application Memory:
    Free Space - 4.8MB

    Device Memory:
    Total Space - 859.2MB
    Free Space - 855.7MB

    Media Card:
    Total Space - 7.3 GB
    Free Space - 5.9 GB

    Why should I be getting this message? and what can I do about it? I only have 7 apps in my "Download" folder (2 of them being Google based).

    Thanks!

    Holy crap...!!! You only have 4.8MB file free memory available?!? Are you making sure you're properly closing your apps?

    I have over 20 apps/themes installed and my file free memory is consistent at 49MB.

    Perform a battery pull and let us know what your app memory shows after that.

    I was going to put "Perform a battery pull", but I'm certain that the OP just isn't closing his/her apps completely.

    Menu "BlackBerry" Button, scroll down to close.

    ahh, ok. So its not memory as in rom, its memory as in ram. I see.

    So I just did a battery pull and rebooted the phone. I opened no applications. The free memory available is: 27.7 MB

    That still doesn't seem like much....

    If you are on the original OS, that's about normal. And it will drop as applications take up some memory. If the phone is running ok, then do not stress.

    ive had the phone for 11 days now, upgraded os to .247, unbranded using a different vsm, and, worst of all, i have broken the warranty seal because i blacked the bold out...

    u may have a lot of items resident in your memory

    use the ALT + ESC and what programs do you see open?

    do you download lots of themes?

    I'd be interested in seeing the applications you do have. I've noticed there are a lot of apps that just devour free file memory.

    Again, if you're comfortable with your BB, I suggest upgrading your OS (as bt already mentioned).

    The guy above said to hit ALT + ESC but there is no escape key, that I know of. But I did what you asked and here are the results:

    Platform: 4.0.0.157
    App Version: 4.6.0.167 (298)

    Is that up to date?

    It might be either one of theose apps that are giving you a memory leak or an app you have recently installed.
