Angry Low memory?

Please Login to Remove!

so who else has low memory on their curve after installing apps ? I have 5 mb left! Is this a problem?

Will my bb start deleting stuff?
I have this:
tele nav
pocket day
total fitness
multi alarm
find it
repligo
free news
jive talk
journal pro

Plus:
1500 contacts
300 calender items

Is this amount of available memory normal?

5mb of free memory is normal for you, considering the number of applications you have on the device.

Do you have a lot of themes? phone call logs? messages?

5mb free is not the end of the world, but I wouldn't allow it to go much lower.

But you do face "possible" deletion of some SMS/phone logs at that level.
Not to sound alarmist about it, I am probably just more conservative about it than Penguin. More info below if you like.

Why is my BlackBerry losing its call logs or message logs? - BlackBerryFAQ

no just 2 themes. Phone is only a week old and doesn't have too much in terms of logs. Besides I delete old logs and emails daily.

Agreed. Lots of people install apps and never use them. Dump what you do not need and keep your device lean and clean. I can see one or two apps that are nice to have and use but you got way too many!
