My 8310 Curve has 3156457 bytes of free memory after I cleaned it and transferred all files (pictures, etc) to a memory card.

Before the "clean-up" the free memory was around 700000 bytes.

Is that possible that bb deleted appointments to "preserve" free memory necessary to operate?

You need a minimum of 12 000 000.

What else do you have on the device? Because you are way, way low. If you get below the minimum, you will see data being deleted from the device.

Also, try performing a hard reset on your device and then check the free memory again. A hard reset can be performed by removing the battery from the device while it is still powered on. Leave the battery out for about 20 seconds, then re-insert.

jeremyckitching, thank you for the advice. After the hard reset I'm at about 13.5 mil.

Motorcycle Mama, I only have the basic bb applications on it, no facebook, myspace, etc... I have Google Sync and Google maps, pacman, and brickbreaker. I removed just about everything else, including the languages that I don't need. What else can I do to free up the memory? I followed the directions in the FAQ thread.

Thank you.

By FAQ thread, I assume you ment this thread? http://www.blackberryforums.com/gene...ee-memory.html

Looking at the application switcher will tell you about any running apps. (Holdting the left Alt key and hit the back button will bring it up).. Leaving apps open will severely drain your file free. You always want to "Close" your apps using the menu, not using the back button.

I would try and get some more file free, 13 is good but more is always better.

Well, Google Maps is pretty big. Don't know about Google Sync. It might be, as well.

How much space is taken up with your stored emails and text messages?

Is that true that stuff will randomly get deleted from your phone if there isnt enough memory? They dont even give a warning?

Calendar messages, Email messages, etc will be deleted if file free hits "0"

perhaps a minor complaint, and perhaps it's been made already, but does anyone else wish that the file free count would have some commas or something? i find it rather annoying having to count the digits of "2334523452345234524382087518327410829734019823740 1892347"

If your BB has that much device memory then you really shouldn't have any problems.

I'd say it really depends on how well you keep track of your memory usage. There are guidelines posted all over these forums but if you're not paying attention then keep more device memory free. I currently run with about 8MB free and no problems.

Thank you for your reply. Then the question that I have is: How low can you go before bb starts deleting data? Also, is there a specific order as to what is deleted first, 2nd, etc?..
