    Are you moving songs, ringtones, pics, etc. to the media card?

    What is your File Free currently??

    How about after a device reset??

    Follow the Memory Optimization Procedure in the HowTo section of the forum

    1.4 gb is not possible - the phone only comes with 64 mb.

    The File Free is a completely different number than the memory free on your media card

    The media card is used for media files only and has nothing to do with device memory...

    Yes, you can store pics, ringers, wallpapers, videos, etc on the microSD to help free up device memory... But applications, messages, call logs, etc take up device memory

    Please go to Options/Status/file free

    If this is lower than 12,xxx,xxx then you are running low on memory (the root of your problems)

    Check out the memory optimization thread!!!

    If you would answer my question about the file free before and after a reset, that would help

    Hmmm. Doesn't seem like too much. Just be sure to limit what you store in device memory to keep your phone running optimally.

    Many members have followed these procedures and have no problems with memory. Look at both of these:

    Also, press alt+LGLG, menu key, clear log. After that, do a battery pull. And I do these at least twice a week - alt+right shift+del (soft reset). Or alt+right shift+del, when the screen turns white, alt+right shift+del again (double soft reset).

    Hope this helps!

    When you say later, do you mean 4.5? I would familiarize myself with your phone first. Some members have had problems after upgrading. But in case you want to proceed, look here:

    Also, make sure you are closing applications properly.

    Do not just back out of the app or hit the End button.

    Go to Menu > Close

    No. It is larger then the previous version buy quite a lot.

    In addition to the v4.2 support, there are new applications for Video, Voice Notes and DocsToGo.

    You mentioned 24 Mb after a reset, that is a quite respectable amount of memory. You must have already removed the samples and other memory consuming stuff.
