    I don't have that many apps on my 650, and I only have about 250 SMS's in my inbox. I have about 900 SMS's in my sent box, but when I reduced my SMS inbox from 1400 to 100, it only freed up 1 or 2MB.

    How much free space is optimal? How much is average? How much free space do you have?

    Here are a list of the apps I can delete (I'll only list the ones that matter size-wise):

    CallFilter 631k
    CityID Log 344k
    Dir Assist 168k
    Documents 1256k
    eReader 419k
    FileZ 196k
    FlightStatus 196k
    J9 Java Launcher 935k
    J9 MIDP Bundle 725k
    Messages Database 1170k
    SheetToGo 1029k
    SMS Messages2 2142k
    SS_P2P 258k
    WordToGo 1125k
    WordToGoFonts 275k
    WP_P2P 212k

    Is there anything else I can delete? The functionality on this phone gets really limited when the amount of free space is low, as I'm sure you guys know.

    My set up is the same as Phrogpilot, I have most of my apps on my card and also used the Dataviz tool to move all the Docs to Go and their related DB's to my card. I currently have 14MB free, and use zLauncher to move stuff around.

    Here is the download link and info on that Dataviz tool:

    All the above are good suggestions. Have you used Filez to look for any other unusually large files on your phone? Do you store all media (pictures, music, and movies) on your SD card?

    Yes, use Filez and sort by file size. Look in RAM first, then look in "Built In"

    It could be pictures or video taking up all that space, and that's stored in "Built In" as Tony said.

    Good point! When I first got my 650 I was fooling with the camcorder trying it out and I thought I had deleted my effort. But when I next checked my free memory, I had like 35% free instead of my normal 55% free. I used FileZ to check the file sizes and sure enough there was a video sitting in main memory that was huge. I deleted it and my free memory went back up to 55%.

    Thanks Khaytsus, I never knew about that built-in zone.

    For others who dont know either: to see it, you first have to turn on the

    "Show Hidden Volumes"

    in the Filez prefs,

    cheers

    Can't seem to find "Show Hidden Volumes" anywhere. I looked everywhere in Options - Preferences. Can you guide me, or let me know what version you have. Many thanks

    Thank you Geoff, I researched it after I asked you and found the 6.8.3 version; my installed version is 6.7 beta. I will upgrade when I get home. Thank you for answering so quickly.

    Great. Thanks for all the info.

    I went into FileZ and I'll list what I have below (just the large files that are worth deleting). If you guys could tell me what I can delete, I'd really appreciate it. And if you could also tell me exactly what I would be deleting so I can be sure it's not something I want to keep, that would be helpful. And how to delete it as well. Thanks.

    OK. That's as far as I am going file size. Next is BUILTIN, however, some of them seem duplicates of the ones above. As some of you might know, the "%20" stands for a space in the file name.

    You could save several MB of space moving Docs 2 Go to your card, as Dollface said.

    With that said, it looks like you might have some large attachments in your Versamail messages. Can you save them to the SD card? Is it really necessary to have 2 MB of sms messages? Then, obviously, you have some large ringtones. You could convert them from the wav format to ringtone format, which would save most of the space. These things would probably save around 10 MB of space, I would think. I run tons of apps, and I have 12 MB free on my Treo 650.
