    My Storm 2 is slowing down and I have little space left on the actual Blackberry memory. I have a 16 GB memory card on board as well. Can I move some things to the memory card to keep the device running well-and faster?

    I have 256MB on the device which has less than 27 MB free.

    Any tips on increasing memory space?

    What is currently using up the device memory? Mostly programs and apps, or are you currently storing any photos and/or music on the BB memory? If so, you could definitely shift music and pics to the card.

    Mostly Apps I think.

    How can I check if music/pictures are on my memory card or BB memory?

    First Go to Options > Memory > Media Card Support: On

    Then go to Camera > BB Menu Button > Options > Store Pictures: "On Media Card"

    Also, if Mass Storage Mode Support is on then you can also hook your BB to your computer via USB and see the MicroCard as a "drive" on your laptop so you can see what's on the card. If it's empty then you're not getting much use out of having a 16 GB card in your BB.

    I have both of those set right. I just need to figure out if anything is saved to the BB that I don't want there and that can be moved to the memory card.

    As for apps, games and software, my understanding is that there's no way to save to and run them from a memory card, so they'll definitely all be on your BB memory and won't be able to be transferred to your card. Might be a good time to purge any apps you don't really want/need any more.

    Good luck with the project. And maybe time to upgrade from the S2 to the new Torch on VZW?? Looks like a cool device.

    I recently saw an old Storm post with a list of several actions to minimize memory use. I looked today for you but cannot find it. Memory was a bigger problem with the original Storm so I would look at their posts for ideas.
    You are probably already doing battery pulls.
