Wilfire S ins nice, but has VERY limited memory. You'll want a micro SD card. Ideally root the phone and remove the carrier's bloatware. AFAIK there's never going to be an official ICS upgrade, so 2.3.x is it. that said, I still like mine.

The best option for the hTC Wildfire S is to unlock the bootloader, done from Welcome to HTCdev, and rooting it to get rid of the pre-installed apps and put whatever apps you do download to your micro-SD.

You need all the internal memory available possible with that phone.

Good luck.

AS vipperstriker says, unlock the bootloader and root it. do a Nandroid backup after unlocking and before rooting, so you can put it back to stock if necessary.

Just follow the guide in the All Things Root sub-forum.

As a guide, mine's rooted and running WildChild3 rom. I've got over 40 apps installed (Moved/linked to SD card) and have 75Mb free.
