    That makes sense. I haven't gotten a memory card yet, but I've only had the phone a couple days and should be getting one soon. The only thing I have on the phone that I've put on it are ringtones. I'll start deleting the other things you mentioned.

    Post back when you get your memory card and I can tell you some settings to change to help give you a bit more free memory too

    The memory cards are getting really cheap now, check out amazon.com they usually have some great deals.

    Good, getting better. Just get into the habit of checking your file free daily and then using soft reset or a battery pull if it goes too low. Also don't keep emails sms or mms that you dont need, especially mms, they can take up a ton of memory.....I'll post back more tips as I think of them

    Sweet. And ironically, I have a memory card now. I put it in and it increased my number to 11351731. Yay! Also, I'm probably just dumb, but I tried to download the soft reset application and it won't work. It says windows doesn't recognize the file?

    Yup cowboy is right, click the download link from your BB

    Also now that you have your memory card in, check these settings:

    Media/Menu/Options and set your device memory limit to the lowest number which I believe is 5,

    also set "reserved pictures memory" to 0 (this makes it so it doesn't hold memory on the device for pictures which you don't need if you have a memory card)

    Then go to camera/menu/options/ and make sure store pictures is set to On Media Card

    Memory Tips:

    To clear the Event Log, hold the ALT key and type L G L G. Doing this will also clear up memory.

    Check the browser cache, cookies, history, etc by going to the Browser>Options>Browser Cache.

    Use the Memory Cleaner in Options>Security>Memory Cleaning>Clean Now.

    Two notes on that, the alt LGLG trick does very little if anything at all on the 8130 for boosting memory. Also the memory cleaner will need to be re-enabled each time you use soft reset or do a battery pull unless you have content protection enabled(but this uses more memory so unless you really think you need it, I wouldn't enable it)

    Hey guys, I've got a friend with a similar problem. Everytime she takes a picture with her camera, it deletes absolutely everything (texts, call logs, stored pics, etc.) Her file free says zero and I've done everything I can to improve it (battery pull, deleting unused apps, clearing browser cache) I work at AT&T in tech support so I have a pretty good understanding as to what works, but nothing I do can improve it. She doesn't have a memory card in the phone. She is gonna try that. But if that doesn't work, have I missed something? Its driving me crazy because I can't fix it.

    If the memory card doesn't fix it have you tried a simple wipe to return it back to out of box condition. It seems you have covered all the basics and if anyone has a solution I would be interested in hearing it as well.
