Is there a way to defrag the memory on a bb?
I have a 4g card and only 8387701 of free space. My bb is slow and hangs up, I have deleted a ton of stuff, but the number never goes up....do I need to defragment the memory or the bb itself?

BlackBerry has a built in automatic program to do the memory optimization, it runs when needed to recover memory. There are programs that will force a "garbage collection", but there is no benifit ifn bypassing the automatic operation.
You are reporting about 8 Mb of memory, that means you have a lot of something stored in memory.
There are a couple things you can do, getting the setting correct is a good starting place.

You cannot defrag the memory in a blackberry.
Defragmentation came about due to the fragmentation of stored data on hard drives. Since the drives have to move the heads then wait for the data to spin under the heads to be read (seek time), it made sense and good performance gains to defragment a hard drive.
Blackberrys use Flash memory. Flash memory does not have any measurable seek time when it is reading data compared to hard drives, since Flash memory doesn't have any moving parts.The Mayor hath spoken.
