Greetings, and welcome to the BlackBerry.com Support Forums.
Yes, both are symptoms of low memory on the device.
Look at Options > Status. What is the File Free number there?

Yes, that is barely over 1/2 MB free memory. I would recommend you stay upwards of 10MB free... like 15 MB free.
First thing? Remove the battery of your device, hold a minute, replace and reboot and check the File Free again. What is it now?

It is MUCH better but could still be higher. Do you have a lot of third party apps or games on the phone? Delete anything you don't use by clicking on options, advanced options, and then applications. You can then highlight an app and hit the menu key and select delete. But please do not delete ANYTHING unless you know what it is.
Did you know that when you close an app by hitting the red hang-up key, this doesn't close the app but kinda keeps it running in the background. When you are finished with an app hit the menu key and select close or exit. To see which ones are open hold down the alt key and press and release the back key to the right of the trackball. This will show you everything you have open some things like push to talk and the home screen cannot be closed.
Also if you surf the web a lot your phone stores recent pages and history. Open your browser and hit the menu key select options and then cache options. Clear all these fields.
In addition click on options then on status and then click the menu key and select database sizes. See if there is anything in that list with a high number.
After all this pull you battery again with the phone on, leave it out for 30 seconds and then send us the file free number again

I did but I didn't really understand what they meant or how to fix that problem
it looks like these are the big ones:
Address Book: 136/16.8K
Auto Text: 108/6.5K
Content Store: 54/10186.1K
everything else is pretty small
do I need to do something about any of these??
