    Does anyone know of a way of viewing a breakdown of phone memory usage? If it starts getting full (which presumably won't take long given the measly amount we have to begin with) I'll want to know what to delete or trim to free up space.

    SMS messages are stored on the phone memory, aren't they?

    Hmmm,


    The only thing I can think of is to check in the Settings > Application Settings > Manage applications.

    This gives a break down of how much space each application is taking up on the phone and also you can clear data or uninstall applications (Sadly not the Orange preinstalled ones)

    Ah, yes, that's pretty much what I was after. You can sort by size, it seems, and clear caches and data from individual apps too. Thanks! Roy is indeed wise!

    Nazarr most likely best to post in the Droid Eris section,

    But found this Quote from Cnet "Unfortunately, you still can't save apps to a microSD card; you must store them on the phone's shared internal memory. The Droid Eris offers 512MB ROM and 288MB RAM, but you can store photos and music files on the microSD card."

    Wrong forum mate, but to answer your question: You can run apps from the SD card, but it requires formatting your SD card with a fat partition and an ext3 partition, then using app2sd to get the functionality.
