    Low Memory On Pearl*

    Advertisement



    Hello fellow loved ones,
    I have a 2gb sd card in my pearl loaded up with a bout 20 short video clips, 10 music videos, and i would venture to say a bout 23 cds. I love it!

    What i dont love is that after a day or 2 of texting and my phone log filling up, oh and browsing the web, my phone device memory drops from around 12,000,000bytes to 5,000,000bytes. (under Options: Status)

    And when it gets this low i notice i stop recieving text msgs and emails,internet sometimes will not load up either. So i go through and erase all txts and emails as well as call logs...Then have to power off my Pearl and take the battery out.

    After doing this my Pearl has alot of memory and then i get txts and emails again, also internet will work again. Why does it get so low if i have no pictures, videos, or music on device memory. Its all on sd card!

    I want to be able to downdload fun apps and games but my phone wont hold them. I once had google maps and loved it, but memory got low even quicker... Someone please help? Anything at all?

    What OS are you on? It could be a memory leak within the OS. I'm on TMO .64 and have the same issue. I do a soft reset every couple of days and don't have an issue. I do have the option to upgrade the OS but am waiting on all the bugs to be worked out.

    try this thread:

    also consider upgrading the device OS. if you are running earlier versions, as phillbis has stated, those OS versions are/were known for memory dumps.

    A new OS won't fix it. You should delete the unused language apps and the sample video. That'll give you at least 30mb after a reboot. The memory will still leak though. Noone has been able to fix that problem so far.

    Re: Low Memory On Pearl*

    Here's a batch file that I created for my Pearl. I copy it to the "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\Shared\Loader Files\8100-v4.2.0.71_P2.2.0.41\Java" folder and run it. It will only leave the english components. I've done it with three os changes, and have had no problems. I end up with 43+ meg available. If you use it, I would highly suggest double-checking it, I may remove something you want to keep (like password keeper, ptt, etc.).

    Re: Low Memory On Pearl*

    How come I don't see the memory cleaner option? I think I followed the instructions.

    First I went to options, security options, general settings, and Enabled the password.

    I then backed out and followed the path - Options, Security Options - but can't see the memory cleaning / show Icon.

    any suggestions?

    Re: Low Memory On Pearl*

    well i figured it out and thought i would actually help someone else wondering the same question:

    "When a new OS is installed on the PC (not the device) the .cod files are contained in the java folder at (for OS .69) program files/common files/research in motion/shared/loader files/8100-v4.2.0.69_P2.2.0.40."

    So its (referring only to the rimfilesdelete.zip ) obviously something that you can only do with a fresh install......someone correct me if i am wrong.
