File Free / File Total?

What do these numbers mean: "File Free: 8051328 Bytes" and "File Total:47841280 Bytes"? Am I too close to the 'total (?storage) capacity of this phone?

Re: File Free / File Total?

File Free means available free space in your device and File Total means total available memory in your device.

Re: File Free / File Total?


can someone explain where is the difference ?
doing Menu >> Database sizes, I end up with about 1000K used.
I have file total about 54M
and file free about 16M.

no application or theme since I can't install them. In the blackberry memory, nothing apart from the things hat came with the Blackberry in the box.
