No, the memory card is for Media only. Pictures and music. If you have any pics or music stored on the phone then move them to the card and remove them from the device. The device memory will go down as you open applications. To see what's running press ALT + Escape. If you have more that five apps running there is stuff running in the background. Always use Menu>End (or Close) or the Escape key to close an application. Never use the Red end key as it just places the app in the background where it will consume memory.
