Default Memory Usage in Blackberry Bold 9000

Please Login to Remove!

Guys

I got a new blackberry bold 9000. I noticed that it has around 30 MB of application memory and 1 GB of device memory. Plus, I have added a memory card for 2 GB.
How are these different memories used?

1. Where are my applications installed? In the application memory (or) do we have an option to install it on the device (or) addon memory card?
2. Where do my messages (BIS email and SMS) gets stored? On the device memory (or) application memory?

I do not seem to have an proper explanation on the manuals on how the memory usage happens in BB. Any advice is highly appreciated.

Regards
Siva

apps are stored in device memory. app memory is like RAM in a PC.
most apps will be defaulted to instal on the device memory and im unaware that you can make them instal on the media card

again, device memory. app memory is like RAM. having multiple apps running will cause your app memory to go down, because its using it to run them.

What about the messages (email and SMS)? Will it be saved in the device memory? Is there a way to configure it to be saved on the addon memory card?

yes, device memory and again as far as i know ,there is not way to get them to use the memory card

you can only use memory card for pics, ringtones, music, documents, videos.

However, I noticed it the other way around. All the apps and the messages looks like it is getting stored in the application memory.
Can u advice?
