    First of all, what device do you have?

    Ok, that helps a bit. All BlackBerrys with media capabilities have their memory alloted differently than their non media capable counterparts. What this means to you is that you will only have about 25mb free from the word go, assuming you remove the extra languages.

    To remove the extra languages, find the icon on your device called "Setup Wizard," or something similar. When you run it, it will ask you if you want to install any languages other than English, if you say no, it will remove the rest from the device.

    Next, open your browser, hit menu > options > cache operationss and clear everything in there. You can keep the cookies if you want, but clear the rest, including pushed content.

    After that, you should clear your event log. To do the HOLD left ALT and press L then G then L then G (LGLG). It will open an event log, once it does, press menu and choose to clear it.

    Next, go through your email and sms messages and delete the ones you don't need to save. If you do need save a few, actually move them to your "saved folder" so you can easily delete the rest in one shot, rather than actually picking and choosing individual messages.

    Now, open your options menu. Once there, go to security options > memory cleaning > press menu > choose "Clean Now."

    Finally, with the device ON, remove the battery and leave it out for 30 seconds before putting it back in.

    After you do all this, what is your free memory? Depending on what it is, and whether you are happy with it, there are more things you can do, but they are far more in depth.

    net_rim_bb_media_320x240_b.cod (1.7MB)

    thats a good file to delete out the loader/java folder for the device.
