    Question How much TOTAL MEMORY does your 8830 have?

    My 8830 from Alltel says: File total – 47841280 bytes
    which translates to about 45.5 megs.
    I thought this phone comes with 64 megs??

    What does yours have and which carrier do you use?

    If it is supposed to come with 64 and only had 45...thats a heck of a difference!!!

    File Total isn't the total amount of space - its the total amount of space that your files use up.
    To get the device capacity you need to add File Free + File Total.
    On my device I get 64 039 815 Bytes, or 61 Meg.

    The other 3 meg is used because of operating system rounding. AKA, you can't have a file that is only 7 bytes.

    So if I add some pictures, then my File Total number will change?

    One would assume it is like a PC. If I have a 60GB drive then it says 60. If I add 2gig of ram, then it says 1.98 ram.

    i do not believe that the file total will ever change, i just deleted a lot of useless apps i had on my device and the file total did not change. on the pc when you got properties of a drive the file total is the total space the drive had, the file free is what ever is left and it will tell you what you've used.
