Wasted Space ??

Just upgraded to my new Blackberry and for some reason there's only 110 MB of app storage. I just got this device and haven't even started to download any apps yet, and can't figure where all the "other" space indicated in the application mgmt is being allocated too ?? Any help would be kind...

Re: Wasted Space ??

The other space could be related to the operating system, cache files for media, browser and other application data.

Re: Wasted Space ??

Is there any way of clearing some of the cache files ??
I did some exploring and found a redundant list of multiple file entries in Documents to go. There had to be 4 or 5 dozen entries (many in other languages) that were all simply a type of EULA of some kind, since they had no bearing on system files I erased them and regain a little space but I'm still about half of what I had on my prior 9650, which is kind of crazy LoL !! Any other suggestions on where I could look or what I could delete (that's not useful) would be of extra help... Smiley Happy
