    2. Deleting apps will increase your app memory

    Have you deleted things that you never use, like:

    foreign languages (remove them through DM)
    vz navigator
    visual voice mail
    social networks (like google, facebook) that you don't use

    First thing did you setup any app to refresh themselves when you start your storm? For example weather apps, facebook & viiago.

    honestly it wont help too much if you are booting so low. Post a list of the apps installed.

    also what do you see when you do this.
    options>status>bb button>database sizes

    what is the "total size"

    i assume you have a ton of messages stored on the phone then also. I have a database size of about 200k right now and not many messages stored on there.

    I assume some of those apps are pretty big in size 1 MB or more so and that will take up some room obviously. Runninng shink-a-os would free up 7-10 mbs maybe too

    now when i run shrink-a-os does that mean i have to reinstall my os or can i just take certain things off the os

    also i was looking through my database size and i have one that says RMS Databases 8/1146.3K. what is this and why is it taking up so much room

    RMS database keeps data from apps you've installed that required a registration code to be entered, as well as scores for games that are on your phone. If you are always adding and deleting apps, it grows pretty big. It could also be corrupted, causing it to be larger than it should. You can clear it. The only ill effects (besides possibly losing some high score records) is that a few of your apps may require you to re-enter your registration code the next time they are launched...so make sure you know those codes. You clear it through DM. Here's a link to more details:

    Just make sure any songs, pictures, wallpapers and video is stored on your SD/memory card.

    So just for the record, 4419.8K database size is... bad, right?
    I'm going to go back up and wipe and only restore contacts in a bit. See if that helps me.

    depends on what the large databases are...if you have a ton of messages that will be a big database

    The Blackberry's limitation of only using the onboard app memory is a security "feature" from the corporate/military days. This feature is embedded in the operating system. It means that corporate IT administrators can remotely wipe the device and be confident that all data and corporate applications have been removed. I am not saying I agree with it, just stating why it is the way it is.

    It's the same with the Bold. I have almost 1 gig free on the device, and nearly 16 gigs free on my sd card, but have like 30 mb app memory remaining which goes pretty quickly through the day.

    No wonder they say Apple's apps and iphones are taking off... they aren't limited by such archaic infrastructures.

    The day Blackberry went mass-mainstream was the day they should remove this damn limitation on the app memory.
