i have updated a couple of operating systems on my 8900, the problem is that its memory is reduced on each update, is it just because the old OS file remain on the memory or else, how can i get rid of this problem
When you did the update, did you completely wipe it with JL_Commander OR BBSAK?
i did the update with BB desktop manager and i did not completely wipe the device, further to this, the RAM also decreases rapidly and i have to restart the device to claim the lost memory, what do you suggest
my network has restricted BB services, made the web browser limited to wap service browser, facebook, twitter application cannot sign in (i.e. all applications running on BIS do not work)
the question is, can i break the network restrictions ? and how ?
needless to mention that i am a BIS subscriber.

Where did you download it from, and who is your carrier? If you are unsure about your carrier version check here:
BlackBerry - BlackBerry Desktop and Device Software Download Sites
Then follow this tutorial to properly upgrade your OS:
Yes you can, the easiest way is. To use your app loader on Desktop manager
1 select. Computer > C drive > Program files > Common files > research in Motion > Apploader.
Then if your using the software for your carrier, just click. On the little phone icon in the file list.
This will start the apploader, which wipes your device as part of the sequence, prior to this it will back up all 3rd party apps and data.
If its another carriers OS, when your in the research in motion folder go to shared folder, open your operating system file there and delete the Vendor.XML file. If you can't find it, use the file search function and delete it, also make sure you empty the recycle bin after deleting it.
If a OS for your device won't load, there's a vendor.xml file hiding! So with such difficulties, use the search function on your PC.
Check out the tutorials here, and threads relating to loading software

The reason why there seems to be less memory, is simply the newer Operating system is larger.
When you update using Desktop Manger, the apploader wipes your device as part of the sequence.
Basically your device is using more Data, this is common on 8900's. Google BerrycoderMaxmem, download direct to your device the maxmem app, this will remove a lot of the cod files you don't ever use, also you don't ever get to see. Check out the posts/threads on this forum, that relate to OS shrinking.
Also check the tutorials here how to do so, and you'll free up a lot of Application memory.
Maxmem is the easiest way to go, just follow the instructions, it will ask each time you make a selection if you wish to reboot. Select later, then when you have completed the selections. Give your device 3 Battery pulls, to settle the OS in and presto! Your up and running.
If you wish to use the shrinking tools available, then really check out the tutorials first.
But with any of these (even JLcmndr) the worst thing you would have to do is load your OS again.
No shrinking programme, would permanantley 'Brick' your device. Just alway Back up your data, and do that Often.
