Default Clueless Newbie with low memory issues

Please Login to Remove!

TIA for the help. I have a 8320 Curve.
File Total Memory: 56098816 Bytes
File Free Memory: 10353446 Bytes

I've already deleted a few things I had in it, and also pulled the battery, but I'm still losing messages and call logs. I don't know how to free more memory. I've read through the thread about doing it through the Desktop Manager, but I don't have that, I sync with PocketMac.

Any advice/info/thoughts/help would be greatly appreciated. My BB's version is 4.2.2.181

You should upgrade to the latest version.

The new OS would be a nice start. I hope it is not device related.

I'm not in the United States, and my carrier is not a USA company, so I don't know if I have access to the newest OS for the Curve. Is that possible? If so, where do I find it?
TIA.

Any 8320 OS will work with any 8320. Follow these instructions exactly:

Can't do. I have an iMac, no Desktop Manager.
I'm being a pain, sorry.

An upgrade of the OS will NOT help the members space issue. Please see
the following link and free up some memory.

Good Luck!

Do you have any third party applications loaded? Do you have a media card?
Do you have any pictures stored on the device memory? You can still delete un-used applications and language from the BB if you don't have a PC.

Yes to most of that. I've uninstalled pretty much everything I don't use, though. I already moved the photos to the memory card.1
My phone has a 1 GB card. I was wondering if I could move 3-party apps (I have a card solitaire installed) to that card, or is it only for media storage?
I just deleted a bunch of languages and now have 13125262 Bytes of free memory out of 56098816 total memory.
is this good enough, or do I need to clean some more?
Thank you so much for your patience!

I would try to get it to 15mb but you should be able to manage at 13mb. Just be sure to get rid of MMS messages and messages with attachments. Do a battery pull at least one a week to reclaim memory. You don't need to Help application as you have US here. Delete that for a little more wiggle room.

How about moving apps to the memory card. Can this be done?

The microSD card for Blackberries is a Media card (pictures, videos, songs, ringtones). You can't install applications to the phone on it.

Nope. The media card is for media.
You have to remove extra languages, unused applications or media from internal memory. That's all you can do.
