    You may be right RonC. The other BBY models have really been mainstay business tools. I think the 8100, and now the 8800, are aimed to cross the boundary to a wider market. So maybe it'll just take some time to work the kinks out?

    Anyway, I'm not sure what more I can offer. I've only got 29 contacts in my address book...

    Not sure what else I can offer, rdc2000. You're out of my realm with such a large contact base. I wish I could help...

    So why do you have a Pearl

    I'll try contacting Blackberry to see if they have any ideas, or even better, I'll just stop talking to my customers...

    Re: Available memory on Pearl

    #1-Push email.
    Beyond that... web, BBM, PDA features suited to my moderate needs.

    I've had a RIM pager at work since before anyone even knew what they were.

    I'd have to agree with the Push Email part. I had intended this device to replace my cellphone + PocketPC combo - hopefully the address book thing can be worked out (I think I'll hold off on putting that PocketPC on eBay for now).

    Re: Available memory on Pearl

    Not to worry- I wasn't expecting technical support.

    Seems strange to me. I have to look up the amount of memory of the contacts, but I think it's insignificant compared to music/image files...

    On further investigation, it looks like the Desktop Manager allows you to setup rules to control what gets synchronized. One possible option is to only synchronize US-based contacts - though I'll have to go through all 388 contacts in Outlook and add the home country to their address :cry:

    I'd hold on before doing that. Contacts are text based and really shouldn't be taking a ton of memory. Picking and choosing them to save a kilobyte or two defeats the whole purpose.

    I'm searching my computer now to try and find out how big the contact data is.

    Wish I would have looked at available memory before the first synch. But if you look at the data I put above for my 7290, it shows that the contacts is not the issue.

    Re: Available memory on Pearl

    Here's something you both might try.
    Launch your Media applet and at the 4-icon screen, click the music icon and then press the menu button. Select Options from the menu and set the last 2 items to the minimal amounts (12 and 0) and save the changes. Then check your free memory again. Maybe after a reset...
    Lemme know if it helps.

    Re: Available memory on Pearl

    Well the battery pull put me over 15mb. Changing the media settings didn't change anything- but I have no music, images or video loaded that didn't come with it.

    bizarre.

    19 mb will still give you room for thousands (and thousands) more contacts and appointments.
