Hi

I guess it will not work faster, if LS is installed on the phone and the
database  on Memory Card. Instead you have less RAM.

Hello  Dave,

If you have Loadstone installed to your memory card and wish for it to
reside on your phone's memory you do indeed need to reinstall.  I am not
sure  if when you choose phone memory as the destination during the
reinstall if your phone will remove  loadstone from your memory card. 
Maybe someone else can comment on this.

What you will most definitely want to do before removing or reinstalling is
to copy your current databases (and any other settings) from the Loadstone
directory tree  to somewhere safe so you can copy them over after the
reinstall.

Second, you can have LS installed on the phone's memory and load databases
from the memory card.  Right now you must keep selecting the ".." entry in
the "Load Database" function to traverse up the directory tre.  We hope to
have a configuration option that will allow you to set the database path in
future versions.

Hope that helped

Best regards,
   Monty
