BB File Manager Re-Post

BB File Scout is a GREAT way to improve the overall performance of your Blackberry by freeing up valuable application memory. The more free application memory your device has..the better it will run (too check app memory check my post on upgrading your Storm's OS)

With BB File Scout you can go in and delete a lot of the useless stock wallpaper photo's, unused ring tones, and on the Storm the Babylon AD preview video (that file alone is 10MB)

All in all if you delete all of the useless stuff you can free up around 15-20MB's....Which will allow you to download MORE STUFF!!

Download BB File Manager OTA here

Be Careful to NOT Delete critical files...rule of thumb...If your not sure...DON'T DELETE!!


New Facebook Download for 1.6

Sorry for the late Post...But I can tell you this...IT ROCKS!!!

New Slacker Update

Now I know that most have you have gone the way of Pandora (myself included) but Slacker is still in the streaming music game and has released an update to their original program.

The main upgrade is faster buffering of songs, and the ability to pause and play with virtually no lag time.

check it out as an alternative to Pandora if you like.

Watchdog for Storm....Keep your Storm Safe!!!

Check this one out...Run this program when your Storm is not in your hands...and if someone picks it up it starts making a bunch of barking noises.

Kind of like a car alarm for your phone.

Minimum Memory Requirement for Storm OTA Upgrade...

I have heard some issues out there regarding OTA upgrades on the Storm. If you are going to be doing the upgrade OTA (Over the Air) you need at least 23 MB of free Application Memory on your device.
Check it by going to options/ memory and then see above for where to look.
To bypass this issue go to on your PC.
