BlackBerry phones have a large number of apps, or applications, that can be downloaded and used. However, these apps can take up a large amount of device memory, in turn slowing the BlackBerry down. One solution to this is to download, or archive, your apps to the microSD memory card. Doing so can improve your phone's functionality.

Choose "My World" from the main screen in order to view your downloaded apps.
Scroll to the app that you would like to archive or download to the microSD memory card. Select your "Menu" button and choose the "Archive" option. This will begin the download and archiving process. Your app will be uninstalled from the device memory and transferred to the SD card.
Reboot the BlackBerry if requested. Some apps will require this step, while others will not.
Restore the app that you saved to your microSD memory card. You should be able find your archived apps in the Downloads folder or on the home screen. The archived apps will have a green arrow on the icon indicating it was downloaded to the memory card. Select the app and then select "Restore."
