    Help - No space left

    Advertisement



    Hi there

    I have only had my Pearl a few months and I think I have run out of space. I noticed that it started delting e mails and SMS messages from the bottom of my inbox when a new one arrived at the top.

    I guess that means the disk is full up?

    Also, in Options under Status it says that I have 257608 bytes free out of 65142784 total bytes. Does that sound about right?

    So, I need to delete some stuff.

    I have downloaded the following recently:-

    MF Radio
    A Texas Holdem Poker Game
    and Bass Assassin

    I also have the e mail section set to store messages forever - are they stored on the device or on the server?

    Anyway, i guess I need to uninstall one of the above?

    Does anyone know if there is anything I have said which will cause a big drain on available space?

    Also, can you psl tell me how to uninstall the above?

    Thanks

    Ian

    Dude you're way low. I have 10 3rd party apps and still around 35 megs free. Do a 'free memory' search.

    The Pearl OS has a memory leak.
    Pull your battery out for 30 seconds and then replace. Think of it like rebooting a PC. I also posted a link to a new, user-developed applet that will 'reboot' the phone without the battery pull. Search for 'reset applet'.

    Re: Help - No space left

    Thank you very much - both of you.

    I did the reboot and it looks much better.

    I now have 16 out of 65 mb free.

    Whilst that is a lot better than zero (which is where it was 5 mins ago!!!!) I am still a bit worried that I am 75% full !!!!

    Does that sound normal to you guys? I use the Pearl for business and lots of e mails and attachments are being saved.....but are they saved on the Pearl or are they saved on the server?

    I always assumed it was the latter but, if I am wrong, that probably explains it and I should change the setting to "keep for 3 months" or even 1 month - ie not "keep forever".

    Grateful for your help

    Thx

    Ian

    If you're using BIS, I'm pretty sure it's all local to the Pearl.
    If you're using BES, I can't comment... no experience.

    There are many ways to increase free memory.
    Delete unneeded languages is one.
    Delete the sample video is another.
    Do a forum search and you should find some comprehensive threads.

    My Pearl has 35 of 65MB free upon reboot and I've got lots of apps and wallpapers loaded.

    Re: Help - No space left

    Thanks - how can I tell whether its BIS or BES.

    As far as I know we have a separate server at HO and all our e mails etc appear on our laptop at the same time as on our Pearl.

    If I change an appointment in calendar or a contact in contacts on either machine, the other one updates instantly.

    Does this give any clues?

    Sounds like BES (BBY Enterprise Server). You may be limited as to what you can do with your Pearl depending on what IT policies have been pushed to you.

    16MB free should be fine... just remember to reboot often to clear the memory leak. The reset applet I linked to works like a charm.
