    Remove apps you do not need. Also clear out the event log whenever you're bored.

    I would recommend using "Shrink My OS" from Lyrical (included with all of the hybrids floating around). There's a lot of crap you don't need in there, and "delete languages not used" in the initial setup does NOTHING.

    With the 4.7.1.40 release, I had 98-102MB free. With the 4.7/5.0 hybrid, I'm up to 116-118 and holding steady.

    ... or delete it altogether (like I did) as part of Shrink-My-OS.

    Google it. Its something you install on your PC and run from there. Nothing is installed on your BB.

    A) Remove sample pictures and video = ~8MB
    B) Clean your internet cache
    C) Set your calendar/messages to delete entries after 15 days
    D) Backup and wipe completely = ~10MB (god knows where they came from).

    Shrink-A-OS download link

    Simply locate the OS folder. It's usually:
    C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\Shared\Loader Files\9630_XXXX

    Open the program and check the boxes of the stuff you want to remove. Then, click "Shrink my OS."
