Re: blackberry torch 9860 memore issue

Hi and Welcome to the Community!

Wow...you must have tons of things installed to your BB and/or huge amounts of data in Messages, Contacts, or Calendar. In any event, the amount of total available AppMemory cannot be adjusted. Therefore, to maximize your free AppMemory, you must decide what you absolutely must have on your BB. For instance, if you have installed languages that you don't need, removing them could help. Likewise, add-on apps or games you don't use are taking space. The key is to figure out the mix of things that you absolutely must have on your BB, and remove the rest so as to free up the maximum amount of AppMemory on your device. The removal will best be accomplished using the Desktop Software, as that gives you the full list of installed apps, both core provided as well as otherwise obtained. To get it to work properly, it may be necessary to also install, to your PC, the OS package currently running on your BB (sometimes, without that, the Desktop Software won't show the core provided apps that can be removed).

It may also be that you should proceed the other way around...install the OS clean, with all of the things you don't need (e.g., languages) left off, then add those apps you have decided you must have, and then you will have the cleanest original install that you can have, which may recover more AppMemory than simply removing things from your current configuration.

Unlike other devices, all things that are installed consume some amount of AppMemory...so you must carefully choose the mix of things that you absolutely must have installed to the BB all the time.

Good luck!
