    I am reading in certain posts that some people have 300mb free on their new Bolds. How the heck did they get so much mem free? I am currently at 200 with only a few apps loaded after 2 days of using my Bold.

    I am curious why you are not allowed to delete some of the East Asian characters on DM. Some of them are very large files like the traditional chinese characters at 5mb. I guess a shrink would take care of the ones I can not delete?

    Not sure. Are you talking about Chinese Input? or Fonts? You should be able to delete both. Also, connect your phone to explorer (PC) and delete those random country EULAs...shave off a few more MBs I guess.

    They were listed in the DM with an "x" to the right of them. Most I was able to delete by hitting the "x", but some I could not click the "x" to delete. Like you said this probably has to be done within explorer.

    East Asian Characters and Font Support

    You should be able to expand that heading and individually delete all the installed languages.

    Actually it wouldn't let me strange enough. Maybe I will need this in the future lol!

    Doing it this way also takes forever! Just deleted a few items and everything is updating. Maybe a new OS is loading since my phone is only 2 days old.

    You do not have to Apply the changes after deleting one language, you may select uninstall for all of them and then apply the changes.

    Evidently a new OS was updated when I hit apply changes to all the languages hence the length of time. Now I am currently at 233mb.

    OK this is gonna be a newb question, but why is it I deleted all languages from the DM, but when I look in internet explorer under Blackberry User Tools(G)/files/Languages there are like 20-30 languages still there? Also under countries they are there as well.

    Those are not languages but rather end user agreements for all the countries. You can delete at anytime.

    I don't know what to tell you. Delete all the language files again. Start from the first step. Don't see how your deleting your language support files would equate to an OS upgrade...

    I only have 186 MB... those pre-loaded background images are on this memory or the 6GB or so internal memory? If it is on 186 MB of app memory, how can I delete them? Where can I get a link to a shrinking program? I have used BB-Boss before.

    Is there anyway you can post a picture of your DM application manager? I like to free up more space on my BB 9930 as well, but no matter what I do, I don't seem to have more than 200mb... Thanks!

    I went through and deleted language files and country agreement files on my Bold 9930 but that only increased device memory (8gb) not the application memory. I'm sitting at around 147mb free on average. Ugh

    However, I think there may be a confusion between free application memory and free memory. Just looked at my free memory under Application management and I was around 242mb. Should be noted that app memory is listed separately.
