Default How much Free File Space do you have???

Please Login to Remove!

I have been having problems with my device slowing near 10MB free file space.

I researched and found a few ways to modify the .cod files in the OS to save some space. I did this by removing files for languages other than English and by deleting code files for preloaded pictures. I chose to leave all of my themes on my device incase I feel like switching one day.

After a soft reset, I now have 19.9MB free on my device. I feel like it is moving much faster and I am very happy. However, I have heard stories from people that they have gotten close to 30MB free on their devices by doing similar actions.

How much File Space do you have free? What software mods if any do you have?

Please note file space is with 0 applications open.

What do you mean by "VERY" lean? What have you trimmed and how? I am still trying to learn how to run my device even more lean.

GT, does your 8830 have the built in Spell Checker? You can see it in Options if you do. If so, you can jetison the Sprint Nextel spell checker.

in the sync setup, there is an option to delete all on handheld, and then you sync Outlook back to it. That won't gain much space, though, unless you have a real full calendar.

Have you performed the steps in the link above?
