No. You cannot install apps to the Media Card.

The SD card is for storing pictures, ringtones and music. You can store documents and unintalled apps, but as M-M said above, you cannot run apps from the SD.

Does that apply to all Blackberrys or just low end ones?

29mb of memory? What are you looking at? I have a 9330 and I thought the 9300 would be similar. I have 245mb free.

I have not loaded up on apps, but I do have some installed.

That's how much I have spare. I know it's got 256mb.

I'm finding i'm having to run QuickPull twice a day to free up memory and sometimes I get a low memory warning.

You need to delete some of the apps you can live without, the more apps you have installed, the less ram your device has to run them with.

I didn't realize the 9300 only has 256, but the 9330 has 512. However, you must have really loaded up on apps so the suggestion to delete some is a good one. You may have loaded up on too many and managing the available memory requires you remove apps you don't use regularly.
