How to maximize free space
It is a good idea to take active measures to maximize the BlackBerry smartphone's available flash memory, and thus, prolong the time before the operating system starts the Low Memory Manager application. The following are suggestions on how to maximize available flash memory on the BlackBerry smartphone:
Use amedia card
Media cards are especially useful for BlackBerry smartphone users who want to store media files like songs, pictures, videos, voice notes, and ring tones, or who want to store pictures they take with the built-in cameras. Built-in video cameras on BlackBerry smartphones require a media card to function.
To make sure the built-in camera is set up to save picture files on the media card,complete the following steps:
1. Install the media card in the BlackBerry smartphone.
2. Open the Camera application.
3. Display the menu and select Options.
4. Set the Store Pictures field to On Media Card. You can also change the Folder setting to the particular folder in which you want to save pictures.
Remove unnecessary items
Removing features and applications that areunderused increases the available flash memory on the BlackBerry smartphone.
* Use the Setup Wizard application to remove languages that you do not use from the BlackBerry smartphone. Removing languages is highly recommended because it is one of the most significant ways to increase available flash memory.
To remove languages from the BlackBerry smartphone, complete the following steps.
1.On the Home screen, open Setup Wizard.
2. Select Languages.
3. Select the language you want to use on the BlackBerry smartphone and click Next. The BlackBerry smartphone deletes all languages that you do not select.
* Remove underused applications.

6. Select Applications. The BlackBerry smartphone takes time to build a comprehensive list of the installed applications.
7. Highlight the application you want to delete, display the menu and select Delete.
* Minimize the number of contacts stored in the Address Book on the BlackBerry smartphone.
One way to minimize the number of contactsstored in the Address Book is to use the remote address lookup feature when you need to send an email message rather than store company contacts in the Address Book. You can use this feature if your BlackBerry smartphone uses BlackBerry® Device Software 4.0 and later and one of BlackBerry® Enterprise Server software version 3.5 for Microsoft® Exchange or BlackBerry® Enterprise Server softwareversion 2.2 or later for IBM® Lotus® Domino®.
Delete old items
The BlackBerry smartphone user can delete old and unused items and also adjust settings so that the BlackBerry smartphone deletes old items as part of its regular routine maintenance.
* Delete Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS) messages that are no longer needed. Because MMS messages can contain large media files and cannot be storedon a media card, MMS messages can use a lot of flash memory. If you do not want to delete the media files in an MMS message, open the MMS message and save the media files on the media card before you delete the MMS message.
* Change the Keep Messages setting on the BlackBerry smartphone to reduce the number of old messages using flash memory.
To change the Keep Messages setting, complete thefollowing steps.
1. On the Home screen, open Messages.
2. Display the menu and select Options.
3. Select General Options.
4. Set the Keep Messages field to either 15 Days or 30 Days.
