| | So where is all of my memory?
Please Login to Remove!
About a week ago I replaced my aging 8100 with a 8320. I've always been pretty anal about my free memory and was always in the mid to upper 20's (usually 23-26 megabytes) free with my pearl. That was with lots of apps, games, and themes installed. (At least 6 games, 4 themes, Opera Mini, Viigo, Google maps, BB Weather).
Now I have my curve. Went through the sames steps when I set it up, deleting all the unnecessary stuff. So far besides the basics that the phone requires to function I have Google Maps, Opera Mini, Viigo, and two themes installed. There are maybe 10-15 e-mails, no texts, pictures, etc. That's it. But my phone is showing only 20.9 megabytes free and I haven't even synched my calendar yet!
In the application loader it shows 33,556KB of programs installed.
Assuming the phone should have ~64megs that means I should have ~30 megs minus any application data free. I know I haven't amassed almost 9 megs of e-mails, calendar appointments, pictures, etc yet on the phone. I battery pulled to see if that would free anything up and it didn't. Where/how can I find what what is going on with this ~9 megs of memory that's currently in a black hole?
