    My wife has litlle memory

    Advertisement



    I bought my wife a Pearl about a week ago and it is showing there is only about 20 MB of memory available with a file size of 64. We haven't added any apps or anything to the BB. I did a battery pull but that didn't change anything. Is this normal for a Pearl? I have a Curve with some apps and themes loaded and have more available memory and mine shows the file size is only 52 MB to start with. By the way the OS on the Pearl is AT&T 4.2.1.96. Thanks, Keith.

    I have 25K of memory on my bb.
    I removed the Sample Video and other junk that comes with the Phone.
    And PTT

    I think 20 is fine, check out my thread about 8130 issues and see the screen shot of my memory. I wiped my BB and reloaded the os and still have issues. I have way less memory that your wifes which has resulted in me getting a replacement tomorrow. I think you'll be fine with your 20 though.

    Here to remove PTT: http://blackberryforums.pinstack.com..._and_t_os.html

    Remove the sample video through the DM > Application Loader > uncheck "Blackberry Sample Video" (you need to have your OS version installed on the PC first)

    Try this great thread on cleaning you memory, that might help too.

    But like others have said you still have plenty. An sd card would be recommended as well.

    Thanks all! I was planning on a memory card but that wouldn't help if any apps get loaded since I can't put apps on a memory card. I just thought it was strange that more than half the memory is used up on OS and stuff like that. But I'll take everyone's advice and not worry about it. Thanks again!
