Re: phone memory and internal memory lost space

There's nothing wrong with your memory. Phone memory has Symbian OS installed on it, thats why its showing 276MB free.

And stated 16GB Mass Memory (Internal memory) is Unformatted capacity, after creating File system it should be around 15.2GB , Probably your device came with Map data already installed for your country on Mass memory. thats why its showing 334MB used.

Connect your phone via USB to PC in "Mass Storage" mode and check "Cities" folder properties under windows, and see how much space its using. look other folders too, and you'll get a better idea about what is consuming "space".

Re: phone memory and internal memory lost space

Most phones also come pre-loaded with music, pictures and video which will also be taking up  space.

Re: phone memory and internal memory lost space

its fine. file format takes little space from disk.. I have a 8GB card with my Nokia 5800. It shows 7.4GB capacity of the memory card. Its normal.
