Default Managing Memory

Please Login to Remove!

I've looked in various FAQs for an answer to this, but how does one go about managing memory on a BB? I have a new 8700 series (which I love!), but would like to get a better snapshot of which applications are using what amount of memory, either for its software footprint, and/or for its data.

Related question: Does removing an application automatically remove any app-specific memory usage and/or files (if there is such a construct on the BB)? As I try out apps, I'm suddenly concerned that I'm leaving remnants of app-specific garbage around.

Thanks for any newbie guidance on this.

Options > Status > The click trackwheel and goto Database Sizes, may help you see some of what your memory is going towards. Sometimes just regular use will eat up some space, so popping the battery out every now and then will get you some memory back.

When you remove an app, it should be gone for good. Popping the battery out again wouldnt hurt, in case some rogue library file or something is still running after an uninstall.

Option->Status will show you how much memory you have free if you don't already know about it. I have a lot of random apps, photos, and ringtones and about 2.6MB free. The 8700c still runs smoothly though.
