Deletion from bitpm simply overwrites index, but doesn't delete picture.

    I just uploaded a wallpaper to my phone using bitpm and followed the instructions for deleting it through bitpm and then resending the info to the phone and it dawned on me that all it's overwriting is the wallpaper index file, but doesn't that mean that the bmp file still resides somewhere in memory and is taking up space? Also, about this delete problem, if i were to get a wallpaper through verizon and then delete it would it still not delete it properly. I'm trying to understand what exactly the phone is doing when you delete a wallpaper through the phone and how you can really get rid of the bmp file that got uploaded to the phone.......perhaps deleting the wallpaper from the phone, and then deleting it through bitpm and reuploading would work. Any thoughts?

    bitpim does delete the images as well as fixes the index. I tested it by checking how much available space was on the phone with a bunch of stuff on it then erased it and re checked it and it had changed as much as I had expected so Iwould just use bitpim to do all oyur uploading and erasing
