Default Install Apps ... to Memory Card?

Please Login to Remove!

First let me say I am new to BBerries in general ... just got an 8800 3 weeks ago.

On my prior smartphone when I installed an app I could decide to install it to the device memory or the installed memory card. Theory was to install large or seldom used apps to the card to save device memory.

I have installed apps OTA and via the desktop manager but don't seem to see how I can do the same thing on my 8800.

Am I missing something or is this not feasible? If its not feasible what is the purpose for the memory card?

Thank you in advance for any thoughts/comments.

You cannot install apps to the Media Card.
It is intended for media, i.e., music, movies, files, pictures.
Welcome to the Forums and Good Luck.

You will find that memory management tools on a blackberry do not exist. Regarding the card, I have used it to store ringtones, music, and video. No programs, that I have found, have made use of it.

One last item - there is a memory leak on the 8830. Free memory (File Free) will slowly disappear over a period of days. To reclaim the memory you must pull the battery out of the device.
