I just wanted to let other unsuspecting customers of cell phones with a keyboard know about their phone memory. I had a Motorola Flipside that had 150 mb internal memory. Suffice it to say that it could hardly make a phone call never mind download an app. Thats when I found out that internal memory was important.
I didn't want to buy an Apple, you can't take the battery out, it has no keyboard and you can't add a sd card to it.
So after a year and a half of this flipside I did my research and decided on the Samsung Captivate Glide. I did not want another motorola ever and I use att service. A Windows phone is out of the question. I don't want it.
I just took it home to find out that it has 3.75 gb of USB memory. I was told this is the memory the phone uses if you don't have a sd card installed.
And 1.89 gb of System memory. My phone has gingerbread. System memory is where your apps get downloaded to. Most apps cannot be moved to a SD card. So after all this, I have 1.89 GB left to download apps to instead of the 8 GB of memory as advertised. This is misleading and dishonest. And if I download ice cream, I will have even less space.
I just wanted to warn everyone about this because I couldn't find any information about it anywhere. If you get an iPhone 4s, you can buy a bluetooth keyboard that attaches to it and you will have 16 GB of internal memory minimum.
My friend has a 3Gs and his iPhone is advertised with 8 GB of internal memory. Out of the 8 GB, he has 6.2 GB available for apps, pics and everything else. So the Apple OS doesn't use that much memory.
If anyone has any ideas or news about a new keyboard phone coming out that have more internal memory for apps, please let me know, I have 30 days to take this back. I may have to buy the Apple
