    A good one is BBFileScout. Let me grab you the link.

    Its OTA it goes right onto your phone. Then it allows you to remove files directly.

    Hey brohlijk,I
    Most items that will be safe to delete will be located in the system folder. If you go looking around in those files you will notice the samples such as sample wallpapers(delete), sample folders(delete) MMS notifiers(delete). Basically I deleted all the sample data except the Ringtones.

    Hope this helps

    Yes...you can delete what you like....You will be limited to those two ringtones in your library. Saves memory I guess. Good call bigdaddy...

    Have you guys noticed that with File Manager Pro you cannot delete individual ringtones and with BB File Scout you can.
