On my Torch, I am running out of application storage space, and it is becoming very slow (hourglass running very often).
The issue is not with Applications (less than 200MB), but with "Other" as displayed in the Application Management Screen.
It is not my regular applications (Contacts, emails, appointments,... are under 10MB Total)
Is there a way, are there tools to find out what that "Other" data is, where it is and how to clean it up?

If you would like to see how much resources each application is using and what applications you blackberry is running.
Menu>Options>Device>Application Management>Swipe to the left
You get a screen Title 'CPU' Now
This is a list of all the problems currently in use on your device and it also gives you a percentage indication of how much of your device resources it is using,
Hope this helps

Thanks, but I know, and this is not the issue.
The problem is with the Application Storage (Limited to 512MB in the Torch)
and inside that storage, my Applications are less than 200MB and perfectly fine.
But there is also 225MB of "other" (probably data or remnants of memory leaks or whatever) that is taking up pretty much all the space, and that I need to
2- Delete or clean-up
3- Prevent the culprit app from doing it again.

I also have this problem with my Blackberry Bold. I would like to know what is OTHER in Application storage and how to clean it up as it is picking up a lot of space in my memory and causing my phone to slow down

I Third this problem. I am running on the Torch2 and have to dreadfully do a batt pull just to clear up the issue and keemy sanity. why can't you see what 'other' is? and why can't you see what programs/apps are causing this, it shouldn't be a guessing game. now please come back with a solid answer cuz I've had this issue with the storm2 and the torch1, and i am growing ever so weary of dealing with it.
Sincerely, a loyal bb user.

Yes, and after 10 years with BlackBerry, I just got an Iphone, and I am sorry, but RIM blew it and is going to go the way Palm and others did. Too slow to embrace new operating system, better memory management, standard open java virtual machine, and better web and html functionality.

Did you ever find out how to handle the application storage issue? Upgraded from OS5 to 6 and application storage has been a headache since.
That "other" storage misteriously grows by tens of megabytes without any clue so far to me.
Thanks and sorry for disturbing.
