Bold 9930 - Ran out of application storage?

Can anyone help me with another way to save applications?  BBerry promotion on $77 worth of free applications - downloaded them and the 9930 runs like a hog.  I can't believe that I can't have more apps on here?  Yes, I clean out my cache, and my emails, and reset the phone.  I ended up having to remove apps I wanted but don't use all the time, like games.

A lot of those free apps, if you have them installed, run in the background and hog memory resources.

 

You might observe your device CPU usage to determine which apps are hogging the CPU.

Re: Bold 9930 - Ran out of application storage?

Most of them are not running in the background.  It's an issue of space. I can't believe that this happens on an Iphone?  You can have a ton of applications.  Why can't I do the same on the bberry?

Why can't a log truck do 120mph on the Talledega Speedway?

Why couldn't the iPhone do cut and past of text for two years?

 

You have a limited amount of app space on your BlackBerry. It's a secure memory space to not allow rogue applications to access the device memory and is a security reason.

 

At your Options > Device > Application Management > (swipe left) > Application Storage, what's your numbers of the space Free?

You have approximately 11.6MB file free, that is very low. You need to delete a bunch of stuff.

On your Options > Device > Status, press the Menu key > Database sizes.

What are the top two largest databases in the list where the "123/456k" are the largest (the red numbers).

Don't need a data, I've been married probably longer than you've been alive, kiddo.

 

Good luck.
