    Whoa!

    I just installed v4.5 on my Curve 8330, and now I have 37,xxx,xxx file free!!! I gained 16,xxx,xxx (previously I had just over 20,xxx,xxx).

    Can this possibly be just because of the upgrade, or did it possibly remove some apps and I just haven't noticed yet?

    Ideas?

    Trust me - I'm completely happy about getting more file free, just paranoid I might be too dumb to notice something is missing!

    depending on what version you upgraded to, sometimes the preloaded pics/video was not included which would add some space.

    Both! I went from 25 to like 40 free, even after I reinstalled my 3rd party apps. The memory management has really gotten better with this new OS!

    I went from about 46 to 53 which still impressed me.

    Sweet!

    As mentioned, the preinstalled samples have been removed but that is much more then just samples.

    I would re-connect and run Applications Loader again. Review the installed applications. I have seen some cases where previously installed applications were not carried over after an upgrade.

    If you are missing any that you consider useful, click on the check box to restore them.

    Unless you removed a lot of unused crap, it should not have increased by that much. In fact, I lost mb due to the camcorder and other things in 4.5.

    Reed has a point, look into it.

    Me Too!! I was running between 25-27 and after upgrading now I am running 43-45 with all the same 3rd party apps. I knew it would free up some memory but this is AWESOME, Oh and I have had no memory leaks, Knock on wood that this continues. Thanks to bmcclure937 for his installation guide, followed step by step and had no problems

    I also got a bump in memory when I upgraded to 4.5. Not as large, but definately noticable. .97 seems to be the most stable version out there right now.

    I have an 8320 and did see an increase going up to about 12 or 13 when I upgraded to .81(t-mobile)but that's it. I don't have that many apps and only 2 themes. How do you guys manage to get those numbers? Yes, I've done battery pulls, etc.
    I'm now suffering from free file envy.

    I removed all my photos, video, etc. to my desktop machine.

    I have only two themes and approx. 8 wallpapers.

    I keep a limited # of apps (Viigo, CB Launcher, Sudoku, etc.), and I removed Facebook (which I never use).

    Remove everything that just doesn't get used... :-)

    Good luck!

    Your 8320 has 64 Mb of memory, the OP's 8330 has 96 Mb. That is where the big numbers come from.

    I love seeing the numbers from some of the curve owners....it makes me feel better about my pearl lol....I always hover around 27 file free which I feel is pretty darn tootin good for a pearl at least according to what I have read( after the upgrade to 4.5 of course). I have nintai,cb launcher, car and driver launcher, google mobile, google maps, the weather channel and a few other little bits an pieces installed and feel that I get good use out of my berry.

    just thought I would toot my pearls horn a little bit -
