    Last person that posted something about this ended up using http://forums.crackberry.com/f35/new...e-beta-240210/

    I've never used it, since the 8900 has enough memory... and I'm not really worried about it.

    This is how I deleted the stuff :-

    1- Download and install the latest OS for your device on your computer

    2- Go to C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\Shared\Loader Files\8900-(your OS version)\Java

    3- find and delete the following item you do not want to stay on your device.

    net_rim_bb_medialoader_backgrounds_480x360_b.cod = sample pictures

    net_rim_bb_demialoader_video_89xx_480x360.cod = sample video

    net_rim_bb_medialoader_480x360_b = sample music

    4- Connect your BB to your computer and update the OS (even if it is the same software). When updating, it will remove the deleted files from your BB.

    Sounds like what they have in Blackberry-101-how-free-memory-your-blackberry-smartphone... I usually stick with a known Blackberry 101 lesson myself... but the 8900 has a lot of memory so I'm never really worried about it.

    No probs.

    I delete almost 600 files from every OS before upgrading.

    I know we have plenty of memory, but I hate having junk on my phone that I neither need nor want.

    Thanks for the detailed directions Cautious. They worked like a charm.

    I decided to go with his directions rather than (1) maxmem because of more control over what files are deleted (maxmem indicates all media like wallpapers, music and video are deleted and I didn't want to lose the wallpapers for my T-Mobile themes by accident) or (2) crackmem because I didn't want to have my vendor.xml file deleted (this seems to cause desktop manager to say that I need to upgrade my OS.

    I did like the way crackmem handles the file deletions and just moved the video file from the java folder to another one just in case.

    On my T-Mobile 8900 deleting the sample video saved me 7MB. Well worth it.

    Am I missing what a locked pic is? There were these pics on my bb when I got it that had like a padlock in lower corner. But I just hit menu>open>delete and deleted them one by one. Unless these are not the locked pics to which u are referring.

    Yes those are the ones. Even if you delete them and the video on the device, everytime you connect to the DM via USB, it puts them back on so if you delete them from the above folders, they are gone for good.
