    Whenever i send or receive a text message on my 8130 it stays in the 'Messages' folder for like a minute then is disappears. Does anyone else ever get this problem or know how to fix it? And also, the past couple days a lot of my texts haven't been sending. Would that be a problem with my phone or my service provider??
    Thanks!

    Welcome to CrackBerry.

    That is a well known problem and easy to solve.

    Check Options / Status for your file free memory. Odds are good, there won't be very much left.

    I think all you need I'd 12000 but don't quote me. I think you have plenty of mem.

    How is that number translated to "gigs" or some other recognizable measurement. For example I have 21GB of music in iTunes and an 8GB card in my berry. I am not well versed in what the number means -- can someone give me a translation of what this means... how do you translate bytes to gigs?

    my memory reads (from status screen):
    file free: 29916554 bytes
    file total: 83623936 bytes

    I religiously reboot and delete old stuff and clean out my cache. I store music, photos and ringtones on memory card.

    last week I was crawling - I was hourglassing nonstop and some applications seemed to be really dragging. For example SMS display on caused screen load delays, peeekawho- same thing. Flipside would endlessly hourglass.

    I just threw away a bunch of money by deleting apps - I deleted ALL of the above apps plus some games, Viigo, and BBlight - and this seems to have lightened my hourglassing.

    I did a backup first and saved all of my appl on my desktop and I still have all of the codes to turn them on if I reinstall -- does anyone have any ideas if my memory listed above looks good? or would you suggest leaving off all of these goofy "fluff" apps.

    No problem, this is exactly what we are learning about.

    It would be nice if the geeks at BlackBerry would use commas to make the number more readable, but yours is 30+Mb. Plenty.

    That is to be expected, your 8330 has 50% more memory to start with. More is always better.

    Our OP need our support. Zero is serious.

    Start with your device settings. The most important one is the device reserved memory and the reserved for pictures space. That is easy to find and will get you working again.

    Open Media player and press the Menu key. Select Options. Highlight Device Reserved Memory and press Menu / Change Option. Set it to the lowest choice, that may be only 5 Mb or it may be 12 Mb.

    Open Camera, press Menu and select Options. At the bottom, Store Pictures should be set to On Media Card. If not, change it.

    Open Options, from the desktop, Select Applications / Advanced Applications. You should see the video preview here. Select it and delete it.

    Now you pull the battery. After it restarts, check Options / Status again. I am sure you will be pleased.

    file free: 29916554 bytes

    29 916 554 bytes = 0.0278619621 gigabytes
    83 623 936 bytes = 0.0778808594 gigabytes

    You actually want it converted to MB. As you can see it is was smaller than one gig.

    29 916 554 bytes = 28.5306492 megabytes
    83 623 936 bytes = 79.75 megabytes

    Hope this works.

    PS: In Google type "29916554 bytes to MB" and see what comes up.
