Default Memory Question

Please Login to Remove!

I have a 8300 and love it. However, the last time I tried to download an app it told me that I was out of memory. When I bought the phone from AT&T I bought additional memory but now I find out that it is media memory. I am a professional programmer but I am confused about this "new" technology. Can I use the media memory to store and run apps? If so, how? If not, can I increase my "app" memory (or whatever it is called)? I really love this phone (it's the first data phone I've owned) but it will be a real problem if I can't load any more apps. Thanks for any help you can give.

You have a problem. The application memory on a BlackBerry can't be expanded. The media card can be used only to store media. You can store programs on it using third party programs, but they still get loaded into the same application memory.

Newer BlackBerrys have more application memory, but the memory is older BBs cannot be expanded.
