    If you have the handheld software downlaoded to the PC the first two option s should be 4.2 system software and 4.2 core applications. If they are not there then there is not handheld software on the PC. No biggie. When you update the OS you will have to download the s/w to the PC and it will show up. Once you have the handheld s/w just make sure you expand the core apps and uncheck any unwanted languages.

    I was down to 10 Mb, and my trackball was acting sluggish, I thought it was probably dust beneath the trackball. Also media player and a few other apps were running real slow.

    I deleted a few themes, BB help and password keeper and i am up around 22Mb now and there is a huge difference with the performance and my trackball is back to normal.

    Update: After a few OS upgrades, and deleting languages/apps I don't use since I wrote the original post, I now have 30.4 MB (30422892 Bytes) free.

    Re: How much internal memory do you have available on your Pearl?

    I have 17 out of 64. But i am a newbie, so afraid to delete any files to free some space.
    Got the card for 2 gb, plannig to use a little for music and mostly for data (will load the database later, when more familiar with device).

    Would it be ok with 17 mb, or i will need to clean some space? How do you know it is time to free its memory?
    thank you for your help and support.

    Yes you can delete preloaded media. You have to do some work and it is at your own risk but it is possible. To be on the safe side i would say to use this program to remove it. It will not do as much but it will remove the preloaded media. http://blackberryforums.pinstack.com...ds/links/5/788

    You will be fine with 17 MB, It is up to you how much memory you are going to feel comfortable with. General rule of thumb is that the more memory you have the faster the BB will run. Much like a PC. I understand being new to the BB (trust me , you won't be for long) but i woudl say to free up memory start with the basics. Delete the unused languages that you have on the phone. The languages just take up space if you do not use them. Back up your info to a PC prior to deleting and you will have nothing to worry about.

    Back to the OP. You said you originally had around 25m free and didn't consider that enough.

    Is now over 50% of the memory free enough? Has it made a noticeable difference?
