Default Out of Memory

Please Login to Remove!

Started getting on the Wife's 8800 last night. Noticed she was on Firmware 4.2. Fine updated to 4.5. now she is getting out of memory errors left and right. Saying she has insufficient memory in her BlackBerry. Only third party apps are Facebook,MySpace, Yahoo IM, and Pandora, and BlackBerry Apps store.

I have the same load on my BlackBerry Curve - Any ideas?

Does she use a media card, or is she storing media on the device memory? How much email does she have (with attachments, too)?

The 8330 has significantly more memory than the 8830.

She does have a 2 GB Memory Card in it but I can't determine - Can Apps write to Media Card or is it strictly internal Memory?

Apps go to device memory. If she has pictures/ringtones/etc on the device memory, it's best she moves them over to the media card. This will clear up a lot of device memory as well.

The 8800 has 64MB of flash memory. To check the 'file free' click on Options -> Status.

Press Alt + Caps + H. It will tell you the file total and the file free.

Is it the 8800 or 8830?

I took a bunch of pictures and moved them but those stats don't look like its pulling the media card or am I looking at that funny?

Try a battery pull and check the file free again. Double check the pictures after the battery pull. Make sure they're on the media card and not device memory.
