    Should I have wiped the blackberry first? I got it friday with tmobile,its a 8320 curve. I went home and updated to .124 without wiping it,could that cause a device memory being low issue??

    Not necessarily. I use crackmem to optimize the OS by taking off things I dont use. Then I install the OS. How much file free do you have now?

    It's not necessary to wipe the device before updating, since one of the steps in the update is wiping the device. Furthermore, although it's good practice to do a backup and backup 3rd party apps, and other update steps is backing up all data on the device and later restoring the data. If you wipe the device before updating, there will be nothing to backup and then restore.

    Ohh, crap I did that with crackmem (ie clicked all the stuff I wanted to uinstall) then I did not reinstall the os , I thought it just deleted it off the bb. I did not know that I had to reinstall thwos with those selections on. I'm a moron. ill do that tonight. Can I just reinstall .124 over itself??
    I have 23 megs free right now

    If you have 23 right now your fine. You can wipe the device then reinstall but I dont think your need to.

    No. Yours is a gsm device with 64MB. His is a cdma device with 96MB total memory. Its showing 83MB instead of 96 because of the OS. Hold alt+left shift button+H and it will show you the info.

    What your seeing is file free. It will go down while your using apps. The more apps you use at the same time the lower that number will go. As long as its above 13 you should be ok. Also if your using facebook it will consume alot of file free.

    Because they modify thier OS before they install it on their device. Crackmem will take things off the OS that you may not use. heres a link to it in my signature. Another way is to actually move files in the OS using your pc. I dont recommend doing it because you can "brick" your berry. Take a look at the memory optimization link in my signature also.

    Oh and to add to that.....they may or may not be running the same apps that you are. Reading the links I gave you should help you out some if you really want to get more file free. I personally dont think you need to though. I have alot of apps on both my curves and have no issues. Same file free as you.

    Yea Crackmem will do it for you. Keep in mind that if you delete the Voice activated dialing you wont be able to go to options/about to see your file free or anything. But you can use alt+ left shift key+h and it will bringup the help screen with all the info you'll need.

    I honestly have no idea. Apparently they share a resource of some sort.
