I know, it's a wonderful phone full of features, but heck they are really uselss with the lack of memory! To be such a high tech phone for RIM to only give it 128mb's of memory is ridiculous!
On this forum one of the main issues is it the memory problem with the Bold. Where is RIM with answers???? The only fix is do not download too many apps, don't hang on to too much mail or to jump through hoops to maximize what little available memory there is. Oh, you can also go out and buy a program that might maximize your memory a little. Yeah, spent a good deal of money for this phone and I am going to go buy something else that is really not going to help, as there is only 128mb of memory. You can only do so much with that since just about anything other than photos, video and music is stored in this small space.
Another thing, RIM does not tell us if there is going to be a way to increase the memory with future OS upgrades or if it is even possible. You cannot really call them and ask these questions and I doubt they would tell anyway.
I have never seen such a cool phone that is lacking something so basic on today's smartphones and something that has been available on cheapie crap phones for years.
What a disappointment and I am going to tell everyone I know to stay away from Blackberry smartphones!!!
I wish so much I could get my money back!
Can you explain how the lack of memory has affected you? I don't know anyone who has this similar compalint.
Honestly if you filled all the memory with apps and tried to have alot of them running your battery would suffer anyways.....and thats not really RIMs fault that current battery technology is not up to par. Its the same deal with iPhones with the battery.
