Unfortunately there is no way to do that.
There are two types of device memory.
1. Internal memory - to install applications
2. External (memory card) -- to store media files.
You can make app memory as free as possible.
transfer all your files from internal memory to micro-sd memory card.
You can observe your device memory contents via instruction:
Also there is a software that allows to store apps on media card and load them to internal memory

Hi and Welcome to the Forums!
No. App memory is fixed and protected. That's how BB's work. It becomes all about good memory management. See these links:
And, if those articles don't say it enough, always close properly unneeded apps. And neither the Red key nor the Back key are proper ways to close apps. Rather, it's the BBKey and "Close" or "Exit"
Holding the BBKey will bring up the App Switcher Ribbon, which will tell you what is running. There are five that must always be running (BBM, Browser, Home Screen, Phone, Messages). If anything else is there and you don't need it, switch to it and close it properly. Also, for the Browser, never leave it on an active web page...that will also suck your battery dry.
Hope that helps!

Is there a way to move some device memory to app memory?
Unfortunately not. There is an app however from BB app world called Aerize Card loader. Supposedly you can load apps to the memory card. I do not have it or use it. The reviews on it are somewhat mixed. Hopefully we will see RIM do something to address the issue down the road. In the meantime the information provided in this post and others regarding maximizing the memory are worth reading.
