I'm not familiar with your phone but I'm guessing the missing ram is allocated for the phone's internal use.

The short answer is no.

The sonic has 256 MB of RAM ( Random access memory used by the LINUX based android operating system to operate the phone. )

and 256 MB of Storage. ( Where the operating system and programs are stored.)

You then have the ability to add a Micro SD card for additional storage.

Linux and thus Android does not handle RAM the same way as Windows. Free RAM does not necessarily mean better performance in this case.
