Re: Help me

Hello Paparuu


Welcome to https://supportforums.blackberry.com


The amount of memory that holds the device is low
So you can not lose more applications
And you may upgrade to another higher version
Since only supports up to 4.1

The 8100 is way beyond obsolete.  To reinforce the points above, the 8100 and other models of that era didn't support a lot of apps in the first place, and the apps were small.   As apps got bigger with more features it got to the point that you had to choose the four or five apps you were going to run, and an OS upgrade reduced that choice to three or four. 


Upgrade your BlackBerry to at least an OS7 model and make your life easier.
