    I'm new to the PDA world... looking at the 8703e on VZW. I like using my phones to the fullest, currently have a hacked V710 to do a whole lot more than....well more than its supposed to.. . After looking at all the addon apps for the BB, and the lack of an expansion card, I can't help but wonder..is 64mb enough space??? Anyone run out?

    I recieve my Voicemails via mp3 in my e-mail box.. this will take up some space I guess.... thats one of the reasons why I ask..

    Umm... I don't know if it's network provider dependant but the 8700 cant recieve mp3's via email! I mean it tells you you have an mp3 attachment but you cant listen to it on my BB...
    I know thats not answering your question but i thought you might like to know.

    According to the RIM site.. its mp3 enabled... did VZW lock out that feature?

    Easiest would prob be to host them somewhere and then download them....I had the same issue and got round it...

    I think it is but everyone has their opinion....Am i right to assume the 8800 is a no go at present? That will have plenty

    I find there to be plenty of room for what I use it for, I keep watch on themes and uninstall what I don't use, do regular backups, but then again I do not do mp3's on the BB....couple select ringtones but again, I only have on what I use and it helps keep the storage down. If I want to try a few more themes, I simply uninstall what I don't need at the time. (not sure if that helped answer your question tres).

    i've got too many mms/sms and emails to count and i've still got 33mb of free space..

    in addition unlike normal pdas you can get it to delete mesaages after 30/60 or 90 days....

    64MB should be plenty for what the 8700 can do. If you want/need more space you can do what I have done. Go to options advanced options then applications. Delete all unused lang programs, brickbreaker, help, and anything you do not use. I even deleted memo pad because I never used it. I run about 39 to 40 MB.

    I replaced it with backgammon. I'm a backgammon freak. I made my own board. But you can still delete a lot things that aren't being used to fee up space.

    Yes, it is enough space. Get an IPod for your mp3s, get a high MP camera for your photos, get a PSP or DS. This is a phone/PDA... use it for what it's good at, because it sure isn't good at anything else. :P At least, not compared to these other things.
