memory. The files may use large amounts of memory

and prevent you from storing other files. To maintain

sufficient memory, use Nokia Ovi Suite to back up

installation files to a compatible PC, then use the file

manager to remove the installation files from the

device memory. If the .sis file is a message attachment,

delete the message from the Messaging inbox.
