Default Serious Bold Memory Issues

Please Login to Remove!

I've done several things to my BB recently, and they've ended up in really terrible memory for whatever reason.

I've done the following:

1-Upgraded to BBM 5.0. I seemed to have decent memory after that, a couple days ago.
2-Deleted "Tasks." I never used it - figured it'd free up memory. When I did this, it had deleted all my bbm contacts - I recovered them via remote restore.
3-Plugged into my Desktop Manager, it said it had to upgrade the core applications. I tried, said it didn't have sufficient room, so I uninstalled several third-party apps.
4-Made those updates, and now my application memory is only 6 MB.

This doesn't make any sense to me.

I have the following programs installed:
  • Blackberry 4.6 Core Applications
  • Blackberry4.6 System Software
  • Blackberry Application Center
  • Blackberry Attachment Service
  • Blackberry Messenger 4.6.0 (it's keeps saying it'll remove it, but whenever I run the application loader and it says it will, it keeps coming back up.)
  • Visual Voicemail
  • MemoPad
  • Wordmole
  • Wikimobile
  • Documents To Go
  • Filescout
  • ESPN
  • GoogleMaps
  • Bible
  • IMplus
  • Ka-Glom
  • Texas Hold Em 2
  • Pandora
  • App World
  • BBM 5.0
  • Enhanced Gmail
  • Facebook
  • Google Talk
  • StartMeUp
  • voicerecorder
  • anagram
  • tweetgenius
  • yahoo fantasy football

May seem like a lot, but I had even more before, and had more memory. Now I have less apps, and less memory.

What's the issue? How do I get rid of the old BBM? I reeeeeeeally don't wanna wipe the berry, so any suggestions outside of that?

Yup that's a lot. I would suggest a complete wipe. Probably why you took so long to get a reply is because the best solution IS to wipe the device, so even though you don't want to do it. Its the best thing.

Install the core OS and then start adding back your apps. Make note to not install the default BlackBerry apps that you don't want/use. Hope that helps. Remember to backup.

First off, yes, wipe the device and reload the latest os. When you plug in the bold into DM, and it says it has to upgrade the core applications, don't do it, just click cancel. There was a solution on this forum to get rid of that popping, but I just don't remember it.
This isn't the real Caesar's Palace, is it?
What do you mean?
Did um, did Caesar live here?
Um... no.
I didn't think so.
