Question Utility to clear up memory and free space?

Please Login to Remove!

PC's have programs like CCleaner that clean up temp directories, cahces, etc. in one click. Is there a similar program to clean up Blackberry logs, etc and free up space?

I understand this is particularly important on the Curve.

Thanks!

Wirelessly posted (Verizon 8830: BlackBerry8830/4.2.2 Profile/MIDP-2.0 Configuration/CLDC-1.1 VendorID/105)

I am not aware of anything reputable in that area.

There is one program called "Resistance" - resist the temptation to install alot of stuff, which is probably your best bet as I have learned throughout my short BB life (7290,8700,8800).

haha, BlackBerryBoy, so true. Another program called "self-restraint" which I have issues with of my own.

You will find a applet in OS 4.3 called Memory Cleaner for these purposes... just not out yet!

Until then, following the suggested FAQ and a battery-pull reboot is the best we got.

Clever respoonses.

But... I didn't mean clearing out remnants of program installs. I am referring to things created by the OS itself.

From what I understand, it is wise to clear the Blackberry log files periodically. So then I thought what about a program that would clear SMS history folders, call logs, browser caches, etc. - in one click.



You guys made me laugh though.

you can have memory cleaner on os below 4.3 by activating content protection, so it will be a new entry on security setting called memory cleaning, can also put the program icon on homescreen if you like too.

i also find a program called memoryup - mobile RAM booster on handango.com
maybe you can check it out

I have heard about the RAM Booster on the boards here (search for the post) and some have said that it is a waste of money. What do others think about it? I used to have a PPC and had some utilities that would free up space on my device. Recently with my 8800 I have had some freezing and auto-restarting (yes, my berry would restart itself) of my device going on, so my first investigation was 3rd party apps. If this continues, then the inevitable OS reload (hopefully not)

What about a utility like a file viewer? I had something as such for my old treo and it was a life save. I have only a few days worth of email, only 1 addl theme, a few pics, and a few tones that total no more than 3 MB, and out of 55MB I have only 10 left! I've deleted PTT and all my other apps with exception to TeleNav and JiveTalk with no change. Even after i tried to delete the demo video I had no change....grr, I want to know what's hogging up my memory!

It's called Memory-up Mobile Ram Booster and it is available from Mobylo. I tried it and I do not think it did anything. When you use it to clear the memory, it will say that it increased memory, but I saw no difference in performance. Also Memory-up reports on available memory seemed to change constantly and never were consistent with the BB Status memory report. It looked like all they did was make up numbers to make you think it was doing something.

I demanded a refund and they gave it to me.

It does need to be a very reliable program before it can be depended upon for regular use. It sounds like nobody has created such a program yet. It's a bit surprising considering how sensitive some of the BB devices can be to space available.

It will be obsolete in a year. Expect the 91XX series to have at least of1gb of RAM and maybe be able to use the SD card more.

More memory doesn't necessarily make such a program obsolete. You probably would still want to clear out junk. Right?
