    On Sprint there is a large file that shows the Motorola Video when you start up. For some reason there are TWO.

    1) vzw_animation.bin
    2) moto_logo.bin

    I only needed one, and I used the Vista hack someone posted anyway. hehe.
    I could not delete it, so I created a text file in notepad and named it vzw_animation.bin and overwrote it freeing up over 2meg.

    There are also four big MPEG4 files that look useless in the Windows folder which I have not decided what to do with yet.
    1) future 762k
    2) intriguing 872k
    3) nova 861k

    Next thing is getting rid of ringtones that suck. Go to Menu >>Sounds>>Right Click>Delete Sounds. Chop Away!

    Chances are that most people don't know about SERO yet so you're probably right. The fact is that there's no reason I can think of for anyone to pay $45 for unlimited data when you can get a Sprint Employee Referral Offer (SERO) plan which includes unlimited power vision (data), text messages, unlimited nights/weekends starting at 7pm and 500 minutes for $30/month (or 1250 minutes for $50/month).

    We have two SERO plans (the 49.99 ones with 1250 minutes)

    Same here, although if I can get a SIP softphone that I can use with my Viatalk VoIP service then I'll probably downgrade to the 500 minute plans because we'll be able to place calls over our unlimited data connection as well.

    Why cant I delete the nova, intriguing, or future mp4 files? It tells me access denied from both the Q and from the PC via the mobile devie access (XP Pro).

    I tried that and it still would not allow me access to delete. Those files a beatnik audio and I even tried deleting the beatnik.dll file first and I was denied permission. I went to properties and unchecked read only, only to have the Q check it back and not allow me to delete. I am not experienced enough to even considering hacking so I am stuck with these useless files clogging up my memory.

    A dll file is a Dynamic Link Library file, not an audio file. It won't let you delete it because you shouldn't :smile:

    Ok, did that from the Q, left-clicked for Done, then tried to delete it from the Q and got "Permission Denied" again. When I went back into the properties the read-only box is checked again!

    Am I gonna have to shoehorn this out? Or is there an easy and free app that everyone's using to manage files?

    exactly, that is why i asked 'cuz if you use the graphic version of EQ, once the images are loaded once they shouldn't reload again, i think/hope :} but i was amazed by +14Mb history..

    whahahhaha... i did not pass out, i was just stunned.. i only have a few sites i frequent on the Q and 1 has a ridiculous amount of flashy moving gifs and stuff... that is the main culprit i think, EQ doesn't have that many images.. i will just have to keep an eye on it.
