Default Can a Storm be optimized like a Curve for max free memory?

Please Login to Remove!

Hi all,

I am very new to the Blackberry World although very familiar with PDA's.

I read and successfully completed freeing up a lot of memory on my new unlocked 8320 Curve (AT&T) by following a post titled "Losing Call Logs, SMS or Emails? Optimize your BB! How To Setup for max free memory!" from back on January 02, 2008. Im unable to post a link in this thread bcuz im a nOOb but if you search for the title of that thread you can get an idea of what i'm talking about...

Like the post says to edit the "Blackberry.alx" file to delete vendor codes and remove modules like voice auto dialing, themes, preinstalled wallpapers, etc...

I also have a 9530 Storm (Verizon) and im wondering if I can do the same thing to that phone or something similar?? I have searched and maybe I missed something but I cant seem to find anything like that for the Storm. Can you please advise me if anybody knows of such a step by step guide or anything to get me started in that direction??

Thanks in advance!

Well the storm has a lot more memory when you compare it the the curve. There are a few apps that say they can add more memory and help manage your memory. I am sure there might be some free stuff out there also but I have not seen it or even looked for it. I have about 10+ apps and my memory is good. I do a Quick-PULL about once a week or so, that seems to help.

The steps in the "Optimize" thread would be the same for the Storm...but makes sure you are only removing the stuff you don't need. (This would be true for any model BlackBerry). That is why moving the unused files to another location instead of deleting them is preferable. That way, you can always move them back if you lose functionality that you need.

Ok thanks a bunch...

Now here's the deal, on my laptop when i follow the directory to where the files (C: Prog, Common, RIM, shared) just like i did with the Curve the files are that of the OS for the Curve yet my Storm is connected. Prob doesnt matter is my quess that its connected or not!?!?

Now remember im new so go easy on me but is this bcuz I need to uninstall the Curve OS and install the Storm OS? I ask this question bcuz I had previously installed the Storm OS already...looking in Add/Remove Prog the Curve OS is only one present...can i install both of them on the same laptop or do I have to uninstall and install and uninstall and repeat repeat repeat??

Prob stupid question but being new to BB community...I dont want to mess anything up!
