I have a Cingular logo 8525, what do I need to know?

I have a Cingular logo 8525, what do I need to know? I have in it a SanDisk 1GB microSD/TransFlash card too.

I have:

total: 56.22MB
in use: 11.66MB
free: 44.56MB
total: 49.08MB
in use: 26.40MB
free: 22.68MB

total: 968.25MB
in use: 191.19MB
free: 777.06MB

I have to much junk that came on the phone. Is there anything I can get rid of to free up some space? Say in the Programs folder or in File Explorer under My Device? I need to transfer some of it to the card. Which can I transfer, and which can I not? I tried moving the Windows folder (which is in the File Explorer under My Device) to the card and the phone locked up. I had to reset the phone. I guess the file is too big?

What can I move to the card that came on the phone to free up space on the internal memory?

Is WM6 going to be available on it? Should I download a third party software to get it going right? What about things like: mitigated by Pocket Shell [sbp pocket shell, which makes the menus phone-like. It adds weather, time and photo speed dial tabs to today screen, cool colored themed; spb pocket plus that can: give looping alarms (sorely needed), closes button really closes apps, boot up in safe mode, multiple pages opened in IE]; opera browser which is great in landscape mode; 2K2 hacks, which can: change system font colors, get rid of envasive 'message sent' bubble for text messaging.

Can I get Firefox on it?

Also, the phone/ActiveSync doesn't always seem to work properly. A change on one may not update on the other. Say for example a contact email address edit in Contacts, but it doesn't update on Outlook. Or Visa versa.

Also ActiveSync always seems to be a running program in the list, even when my phone isn't connected to the USB or hasn't been in over 2 weeks. Why? I stop all running programs, and then a few hours later, after no connection to the USB, ActiveSync is a running program again. Why?

Additional info: I also have my home router setup on my phone, i.e. WiFi is used a bit. I have my personal email POP3 setup to pull from my ISP server every 15 minutes. I have my Hotmail account setup as one of the Messaging accounts (because of the Pocket MSN that came on the phone). I created a Junk folder in the Programs folder, and moved Get Telenav, GetGood, and MobiTV into it. The I created a Phone Folders folder in the Programs folder, and moved Help, MIDlet Manager, and Terminal Services into it. I have over a hundred songs and pictures on my storage card. I added a few WAV file to the Windows folder for some additional Notification sounds. Blah, blah, blah. Help. I want to take this phone from cool to bada**
