Delete unneeded files.

On the home screen or in a folder, click the Files icon. Find and highlight a file. Press the Menu key > Delete.

Reduce the size of pictures you take and videos you record.

On the home screen, click the Camera icon or the Media icon > Video Camera icon. Press the Menu key > Options. Change the Image Size or Video Format field.

Store files on a media card instead of your smartphone.

On the home screen, click the Camera icon or the Media icon > Video Camera icon. Press the Menu key > Options. In the Storage section, change the Store Pictures or Store Videos field.

Research In Motion recommends that you regularly create and save a backup file on your computer, especially before you update any software. Maintaining a current backup file on your computer might allow you to recover smartphone data if your smartphone is lost, stolen, or corrupted by an unforeseen issue.
