Re: How many apps

The amount of applications you can install depends on the device's Application Memory. If you go into Options | Memory see how much Free Space you have under Application Memory. It's recommended to keep your free memory about 15MB for the best performance.

 

If you have a media card there is a program called Aerize Card Loader where you can install applications to a media card.Check out the following link to learn more about that program. http://aerize.com/blackberry/software/loader/

Re: How many apps

The newer devices can hold a lot of applications, but you have to keep an eye out for the amount of free space that is left over. When a BlackBerry runs out of memory it will delete older emails and calendar appointments to make more room. Check out this link for ways to keep and eye on and maintain a good level of free memory

Yes , the storm can use a micro SD as well as a micro SDHC card.The SDHC is the same size but can hold a lot more items. Depending on what OS your BlackBerry is tells you what size microSD card you can buy. You can check under Options | About (will be listed as v4.xx.xxx). Look at the chart at the following link to see what size you can obtain - http://www.blackberry.com/btsc/KB05461

Re: How many apps

yes it can, up to 16GB, but you cannot store tour applications on the memory card.

Re: How many apps

The BlackBerry isn't designed to store applications on a memory card. If you use the 3rd part app that was recommended in an earlier post then you will be able to.

Re: How many apps

There are two types of memory: internal memory and micro-sd card memory.

 

All BlackBerry applications have to be installed in internal memory.

Micro-sd card is designated to store media files, documents and other files.

 

The internal memory of modern devices is big enough to store many complex applications.
