    Question Low mem deletes e-mails too?

    Advertisement



    Hello, quick question

    I woke up this morning and found that all my SMS messages and e-mails past Feb 26 vanished from my BB. Studying the question in the forum I learned that low memory can cause disappearance of sms and call logs, which somewhat clarified the reason for the problem. I had only 5mb available.

    However, the threads I found were not much clear about e-mails. Do they get deleted as well when we have low mem on the device? I need just to clear that out before worrying more about my device.

    By the way, is it my imagination or there was an option to archive e-mails on the microsd card instead of the device`s mem?

    (well, not so quick question after all)

    Thanks a lot my friends!

    Rgds,

    As for the low memory issue. Yes the unit will delete emails, sms, mms, call logs, error logs, etc..... basically it will delete anything that is not classified as a program or data file (logs are considered temporary) to clean up the memory to make sure it continues to function.

    What I would do is make sure that all your photos and music are stored on the memory card and not the phone to start with (if not already done). Then I would make sure you have the latest OS for your unit and delete unneccessary files like multiple languages, help, password keeper (if you aren't using it), etc... I would then check and see what 3rd party apps you have loaded that you may no longer be using.

    Nope. English is permanently installed in the unit. There is a UK English that is optional but yes, you can delete every other language in the phone with no issues.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~with only 5 apps and 13mb of free file space, my 8100 just dumped all my mail. This is the second time in 3 wks. I think there must be something else going on
