Goto messages Application and select View Folders >> Phone Call Logs.

Delete and see what that fees up.... They can take up a ton of space!

You can't add memory to the device, but you can add a Sd card...

But how did you jump to the conclusion that 13mb was low? Just wondering.

Uh oh - assume

The easiest way to free up memory on a BB is to reboot it (I am not kidding). Press ALT/CAP/DEL to reboot it (you probably have to do it twice). After it resets completely (without touching any data), see how much free space there is. Bet there is a lot more.

As you use the BB, more and more programs get loaded into memory. So it uses more. See how much there is after the reboot.

Well, 13 is obviously less than 64 but what tells you that you're low on space?

Are you seeing performance issues? Do you know how much minimum memory your BB needs to operate? The BB isn't a Windows PC so it doesn't need as much free space as your PC to operate. It does need some room for the apps you're running but exactly how much you need really depends on what you have installed.

Just make sure that you actually have a problem first is what we're saying. ;) 13MB is a lot of space on a BB as long as you're not planning on loading more media into your device memory.
