Re: why have I only 2mb app space left?

Hello Simon,

 

If you download any apps on BlackBerry through App World, then by default it gets downloaded to your phone memory, if you have downloaded any app on your device except the new one which you are trying then you will have delete other apps and then try to download and its always recommended to keep 70 mb free space, you can check your Internal storage memory space by going to main menu-->App World-->My World-->press the Blackberry Button-->scroll down and click on Available Storage,.

 

You cannot download any apps to your Memory card in BlackBerry.

I haven't changed anything except a battery pull and it now says 71mb free.
How can it go from 2mb to 71mb frm a battery pull?

Are you trying to download the app from the App World or from where are you trying to download?, and try downloading some othe app and have a chek if you still continue to receive the same message.

Yes, a 5mb app from App world. If I it now it'll be fine. Just puzzled how one min it can show 2mb free. Reboot and it shows 71mb.

Do you mean that you rebooted the device and now its showing the proper memory and you are able to download the app now?

A battery pull. Yes. But why would the device show just 2mb in the first place?

May be because of some glitch in the OS or the device,

Re: why have I only 2mb app space left?

Ok. That's one big glitch. Not 60, or 50mb but down to 2mb. And even recognising it as 2 and refusing the download. It wd be ok if it showed 2 but still allowed.

My car's electronic fuel gauge showed zero once, but was half full so workedif tht did this error two, it would have conked out!

Big error!
