    Media is stored in SD card. This OS best due to limited internal space. If you are in 2.2, you can move some apps to SD by settings, applications, manage applications, move to SD in.each app.

    Download astro file manager or similar to browse.

    See my Sig for battery issues.

    Hi almiran-t. Hope I can help a little.

    1. As danfrance suggested, ASTRO file manager is like explorer for your SD card. Get it free from the market.

    2. If you ROOT your phone. You can use an app called APPS2SD to send apps to your SD card instead of cluttering up your limited phone memory.

    3. Your battery and Android OS will take a week or two of use to bed in and get more efficient. DON'T use a TaskKiller as this will stop Android OS optimising itself for you. Then calibrate your battery (worked a treat for me).

    4. Follow steps in 3.
