    Memory issue!

    When I go into media manager it says my device only has 11.4mb of memory and that 9.22 is free, file size limit is 2.86mb. What up with that?

    THe BB partitions a certain amount of space for media so it will not show your full 64MB amount there. To adjust the amount of space avail for media go into media, pictures, menu, options, device memory limit and adjust accordingly. I would certainly recommend getting a SD card if you are planning on using music on the BB. Hope it helps.

    No, you will not. You can also add the sd card to the phone, enable mass storage, and connect via USB to your desktop - the desktop will see the card as a removable drive and you can dragand drop to your hearts content
