    wish I could help coca, but I am pretty new to the BB world; I've only owned/used 8100. i'm sure someone else will come along soon with the answer you're looking for.

    yes, miss, you are right...its dumping bc its low on memory.
    have you tried upgrading to the newest OS? not sure which one you are running? go here options>about and third line down is your OS. i would recommend using 4.2.0.71 as it is the newest out.

    also...you can remove logs by doing this from your home screen
    hold down the alt key and type LGLG then release the alt key...this will bring up your logs. delete them.

    a memory card will help since you can move pics, tunes and vids out of main memory, but the pearl os still has memory leaks. check the free memory (options... status or alt-eace) regularly and make it a habit to pull your battery for 30 seconds (equiv. to a reboot) before the bby starts deleting. alternatively, you can get and load the softreset applet (http://www.geekandproud.net/blackberry-software) that allows the 'reboot' without pulling the battery.

    hth.

    search for a post by spamdumpster... i think it's on this forum. if not, it's on the 'other' forum. very detailed instructions on how to free up lots of bby memory. read carefully though, as it's possible to brick your device.

    Found the posts. READ! READ! READ! AND USE AT YOUR OWN RISK!

    being you're new to the blackberry I would not suggest trying to increase your pearl memory through the linked methods.

    Deleting the logs doesn't mess anything up? What is it logging?

    I love my Pearl

    Re: noob to bb. tons of questions: PLEASE HELP!

    i guess the best way to explain it is that the logs are for 'viewing' if you had issues with your pearl. i think its primarily for BES users.

    i did mine and haven't had ANY issues
    i also agree with blackninja - trying to delete apps when your new will cause you to prolly delete things you shouldn't

    try my suggestion first. and also upgrade to the newest OS available.
