    44MB Love my Curve....
    You must love the 32mb extra MBs with the CDMA curves.

    That's 12mb on our gsm curves.

    How do you all check your memory avail? Do you go into status and look at File Free?

    You're close enough to just divide by 1 000 000. So you have about 11 MB free. That's getting close to the danger zone. You should consider performing the Stoner optimizations referenced above.

    That's the single most difficult and most important step in the procedure. Once you get that, you can do anything. We can help you. Where did you get lost?

    ok, well I figured out my issue. I never saw the java file, and it was not until i kept reading some of those threads, did someone explain that you have to go to the blackberry website, to download your os to the computer.

    After I did that I figured out everything.

    So after getting rid of password keeper and ptt,

    I now have 19,323,922 bytes is this any good?

    That is good, indeed. I don't remember what device you have, but that's good for any 64M blackberry. Well done.

    I have 14540033 and have not a clue as to what that really means. I did however delete all unuse apps. including VAD (voice activated Dialing) and all pics.

    It means you have about 14 MB of free memory. 1MB isn't exactly 1 000 000 bytes, but that's close enough for this kind of work. The minimum safe amount of File Free for reliable operation is 10 000 000 bytes. So you're in the safe zone at 14 540 033. You could likely increase your margin by several mb if you followed the Stoner procedure that was referenced earlier. If you get below 10 000 000 bytes free, your call logs and text messages will be deleted, old calendar appts will be deleted, and messages may even be deleted before you have time to read them. So you want to avoid that.

    I woke up this morning to find that my 8130 had "cleaned up" a bit... so I knew it was time for some housekeeping. I deleted apps, but it still seems that I am much lower on free space than I should be with 11.4 mb (11,978,006)

    I have a memory card, and all of my media are stored there. I've set reserved picture space to 0, cleared the browser cache, set Calendar to keep only 15 days. Thanks to my BB's self-cleaning, I've got just a couple of e-mails, no SMS messages, and empty call logs.

    I'm down to a pretty barebones list of Apps:

    - BB 4.3 Core Applications
    - BB 4.3 System Software
    - BB Attachment Service
    - Browser
    - Email Setup Application
    - Google Maps
    - Google Sync
    - Google Talk
    - MemoPad
    - Phone
    - Tasks

    I use a Mac, so I won't have a chance to go through the more advanced steps in Stoner's thread until I can get myself to a Windows PC... but it still seems weird that I only have 11 mb free, doesn't it?

    Is there any way to get a breakdown of what is using up all of my device memory?

    That does seem a bit low. I assume you deleted the sample video already, since you don't list it. The desktop manager application loader will show you the sizes of your installed apps, but you have to run it on a PC. On the device, Options/Status/Menu/Database Sizes will show you the space used/reserved for the various apps you're using. Finally, I read here somewhere that 4.3 has a larger memory footprint than the earlier versions, so that may be a factor in your low memory as well.

    Bottom line: you've got to get to a PC and run Desktop Manager and the Stoner procedure.

    No, I doubt that. I'm sure you're running twice as many apps as me. So that means it all equals out.

    Actually it does matter. If you do not pay attention, atleast sometimes to your devices memory, and it drops to below 10MB, it can cause you to lose logs, messages, phone calls, apps, etc. So yes, it is important. Some people are more worried than others, but the reason is valid. BTW, I have 33.5MB free file space.
