I know there are other threads with this topic, so fo the addition of a new one, I apologize. The reason I am writing is because there appears to be a lack of consensus about the Bold's Memory and its allocation.
First, I just got the Bold. I was a long-time T-Mobile customer, who was satisfied overall, but just a little upset with the technologies, upgrades and devices, so I switched. As of Wednesday, I am an AT&T guy (we will see how long it lasts).
1) Does the device memory house apps, or does the application memory handle them? I have heard that app memory is like "RAM".
2) Why when I opened the box and started the device was I already at 38mb or app memory? And why would they resort to so much "device memory" as the way to store pics, vids, songs, etc, when a Micro SD can be used?
3) What is the latest official firmware for the device? Where can I find it?
If the app memory is the only way to store apps, then I must say that this is probably the worst blackberry i've owned since the 7230.
RETIRED: 7230, 7290, 8700G, 8320, 8900. 9000 BOLD
