Reserved Picture Memory is device memory reserved for pictures. The default is 5 Mb, that is enough space to store 10 full sized images or many low res images.
When you have a media card installed, setting the Camera to use media card memory eliminates the need to keep device memory in reserve... 5 Mb of free space.
Thank you for the comments. My aim is to explain the process in simple, novice friendly terms.

My file free currently is 20564548. I've decided that I only need on BB things that I know I am going to use. I dont have to try out every bit of software or theme I come across.
In the short amount of time I've been a BB user, I have paid for themes that in the end, I didnt like enough to keep using and resorted back to Dimension L; which is my fave.
20 Mb is plenty for a smooth running device.
I have been thinking about the relationship between Device Memory Limit and the strange goings on that occure at about the same File Free limit.
My device is set to 12 Mb Device Memory. As I understand the setting, that is the maximum size media file the device will play.
It could also means, if File Free drops into that reserved space, clean up begins.

This is a wicked thread! I followed it to clear up sooo much space on my greenberry.
I have a question though. When I'm removing modules I don't see a:
mine says: net_rim_bb_medialauncher_320x240_b.COD
Is this the same thing? I've got the BETA 188.8.131.52 is that just the new name for the module? I'm afraid to remove it and shag up my berry!
I use my Browser for email and browsing the web.
The Browser uses a cache to speed up operations. You can view the size of the Content Cache with Browser / Options / Cache Operations. I have monitored it and observed it grows to 2 Mb then remains stable. That is typical of caches, they keep the most current page elements and discard the older elements.
There is little point in manually clearing the cache, it will slow the operation down because it has to reload all the data that was flushed.
The Content Cache is one of the clean up items after a battery pull and reset. The other caches, Pushed Content and Cookies are intact after reset.

lol, I figured it was the same thing but I was terrified of turning my phone into a paperweight!
I'm gonna try removing this module tonight, I'll let you know if I brick my phone or if I manage to remove the preinstalled pictures!
I will work on rewording the Simple section to make it clear how simple it is to gain substantial memory increases.
If you will can help me with feedback, that would really be appreciated. Check in here if I can step you through the process.
You have plenty of free memory now, but you may as well clean up the stuff you will only use once, like the Sample Video.

Thank you very much.
BlackBerry has forecast another 2.3 million subscribers this quarter, that works out to 25,000 per day.
Fortunately, when problems occur, many will turn to Google and nearly any BlackBerry question will highlight CrackBerry near the top. That is how many of our new friends are finding us.
Once they find us, it is good to know a balanced answer and directions on how to deal with the biggest problems are at hand.

Please note that after I install the Desktop v4.3 I have no issues at all.
Then I install my carriers or another carriers (tried verizon & sprint) device software and I then cannot connect my Vista machine to my 8330.
I have tried to first install the Device software then the desktop software...... no help. Either way as soon as my device software is on the computer I can no longer connect via USB (Only option for me). Seems that something is blocking the usb settings. I try to detect usb and it cannot find anything. But as soon as I reinstall just the Desktop software I have no issues. Also when my 8330 is connected, I can view it as a drive all the time.... never issues with either software.
Can anyone help with this?

Help, I deleted the bbdimension_today_320x24_b to free up memory and wasn't thinking that it would also prevent some of my favorite today themes from showing up, stupid on my part. I tried to add the command back in the blackberry.alx file and then save it but when I did the app loader, it did not load it back. Is there anyway to reload that theme without having to reinstall the OS again?
Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

If you followed my instructions, the file was moved to a back up folder. Restore the file to the original Java folder and re-run Applications Loader. You might find AL will not continue because it does not see any changes. The simplest way around that is to add something small like DOD security and reinstall.
If you actually deleted the file, you will have to install the OS from the file you downloaded and saved in step 2.

This is without a doubt the best thing for the Pearl. Stoners guide is dead on easy if you take your time. My berry is a running machine now thanks to the advice from Stoner and John Clark. If you are having memory issues on the Pearl or other BlackBerries this is waht you need to do to end the problem. It looks intimidating at first but once you get into it and follow the step by step instructions from Stoner you will be done before you know it. When you check your free file you will die! I gained so much memory...The greatest trick the devil ever pulled, was convincing the world he did not exist...
Thank you for the compliments.
John Clark's thread at BlackBerry Forums was my instruction to get my device working smoothly. I referred to it frequently when I encountered users with memory issues.
Both threads hope to accomplish the same purpose, but I decided to eliminate the distractions of Theme editing and concentrate on the most challenging step, installing the Device OS.
- I can not change folder pics only have the one to choose from anyway to fix that with out installing the preinstalled wallpapers?
I do not see how the wallpaper would affect folders. Simple enough to restore the file and verify that was the cause.
