Default back up question

Please Login to Remove!

I don't know at what point the Blackberry starts to get flakey as applications get loaded on. That 64 meg seems to fill up quick. I have about 21meg free and I wanted to load Berry411 (I think its called), Iskoot and probably one more. I have Amaze GPS,RDM+,Xplayer, Google Maps on there now.
So my question is can I load everything on there or can I do this another way.
I make a couple difference backups with different applications that I would use. I mean I would divide them up say maps on back up one and XPlayer, ISkoot and others on Back up two. That way when I need one thing I load one back up when I need the other I load different back up. I realize how much of a hassle that would be but I just wonder how many applications others are using and how much free memory is left. BTW, I do have 2 gig card installed in the phone if that can be used to some advantage to all of this. Thank you for you comments.

You could probably load those additional apps and use them easily as long as you do a battery pull reset every couple days to compensate. I run about 20-25 third party apps on my 8310, with about ~20MB free, dipping to 14 or so before a reseet.

You'll be fine. If you find you aren't so, dump an app you aren't using as much.

Enjoy your BB.
