Default SMS/MSNGR convos deleted after curve ran out of space

Please Login to Remove!

Yesterday I never noticed any problems with my Curve, and then realised ALL of my SMS message had gone, and all the open conversations in my BB Messenger had also closed down.
I knew the BB had not restarted itself as jivetalk was still running.

As I looked in options/status I could see I had ZERO bytes free!!!

I couldnt understand why .. I have a few 3rd party apps I have installed, and I had a few emails saved in my inbox with photos attached so I couldnt see how I was using 64MB of internal memory.

Anyway - I deleted the programs I didnt need anymore, and the saved emails, cleared the cache from my browser and restarded the device and now ive got loads of free space.

Is there anyway I can stop this happening again?
It would have been nice if I got some kind of warning that there was no space left on the berry and I could of cleared some space.

Should I reset my curve often? how should I do this?

I had the same problem. Then I got the 2gb microSD card, transfered all my pics and ringtones over to the card. Now I have like 22MB left. works like a charm.

You can also delete unused languages from the device. That frees up memory as well. I also deleted themes that I don't use. They take up quite a bit of space too.

Default 8300 Memory Setup

Now that I have a device that accepts memory cards, I installed a 2GB card in mine. This is where I store all my work , photos, music, etc. In turn this leaves the on board memory free to run the OS, preloaded applications, and any third party apps I choose to install.

Remember, that's what the memory card is for. It gives you lots of flexibility to store whatever you want on it. And by doing so and leaving the on board memory for the device to use, your BB will run much faster.

My All Time Favorite: _RED-8310_ Backups: 7130c, 8100, O2 8300, at&t 8300, 8700c, 8800, 8820
