After Anna Upgrade, and after fresh boot, the available RAM in my N8 reduces from 136Mb to 120Mb. I really believe more RAM in Nokia phone is the ultimate necessity to operate the phone smoothly without hanging during playing. Can I have the RAM back?
Similarly, c: drive space drop a lot after installing necessary system apps, for example, QT, few themes, Ovi Maps (3.6), etc, from 130Mb down to 80Mb. I really want to save some for caching, any coming important system app, buffer for photo-taking and video recording, etc, and really uncomfortable with no space left in c: drive in my working experience with symbian.
Pls help to recover some valuable c: space and RAM.
Make sure you install themes to mass memory or memory card, many apps install to C: unknown to the user, go into application manager and uninstall apps that are installed into C:, also go into file manager select the phone memory details and see where most of the memory is, might be sms msgs, if u have many, i realised mine was over 30 mb some time ago, i had to sync all to pc and delete most of em
If you have no intention of using them you can remove MS Communicator, Adobe reader, Quick Office and Shazam.
You will free up a significant amount of C: memory that way. Be warned though, Ovi suite will keep nagging you to install Applications 1/2 and 2/2 each time you connect the phone to Ovi suite. It's safe to ignore though.
If you use Nokia Beta Labs, beware. Many of those applications by default install themselves on the C: drive, and you have no choice in the matter.
I have deleted all my messages, but in the File manager, Details bit on C: it still shows as 45Mb of messages! Where are these invisible messages kept and how do I delete them to free up space?

In my case the File manager says: 84MB SIS application (this I can live with) and 76MB Other files!!! Any way to find out what those "Other" files are?
