    You'll be fine - go ahead and use it. You never get the full amount of space (4gb on a 4gb card) because some of the space is used by the card itself.

    its true, if you get a 2gb it will show 1.xx it will never show you the amount you get.. Much like a Hard drive in your computer.

    Memory card and Status/File Free have nothing to do with each other. If your file free says zero bytes, that's a big problem! Your BB will start deleting your call logs and messages if it hasn't done it already.

    Reboot your BB either by pressing Alt/Shift/Delete, or a battery pull and then check your file free again. Then check out this thread for some ideas of things to do to keep your free memory:
