The forever Memory Discussion/Issue
I am aware of the memory issue and have freed up about 15 mb. Wish I could get it higher....but just debating on deleting memo-pad, e-mail setup, etc.. (even though I never use them)
Why does this memory loss happen? I have soft-reset and when I drain to about 9mb, I reset and get back to 13-15 depending on how many messages I have. Is it programs left open?
Another question about Soft-reset: Is it the same as a battery pull?
Still love the Pearl no matter what. This phone has become permantly attached to my hip and is always there in a waiting room, sitting on the couch, on the "can", etc.
Wondering you take on the situation?!?!________________

Your data connection is always running, and yes - some apps continue to run at all times. To my knowledge, Softreset is the same as a battery pull. I usually gain the same whether I pull or use softreset.

I can only see the third party applications that I installed. I've posted about not being able to see the native apps even with desktop manager app loader but haven't gotten any responses. Can anyone help me with this? How do I set my device so I can see ALL applications!?!

Do you have the OS from your device also installed on your PC? If not, you can D/L it from here:
BlackBerry - BlackBerry Desktop and Device Software Download Sites
then install to your PC. It will then show up in App loader.

Thanks for the link but I'm still kind of lost. I still don't know what you mean when you say "OS". I'll be as specific as possible.
When I click on your link, it takes me to the BB site. From there, I find Verizon's link, which then takes me to the Verizon Wireless site. Once there, I have 3 different options to download for the 8130:
1. BlackBerry Desktop Software v4.3 (updated 11/20/2007) -- This is the download that installs the most up to date Desktop Manager as well as Roxio, which is used as the Media Manager. This installation file is pretty much the same thing as installing from the CD that came with the 8130.
2. BlackBerry Device Software v4.3 (updated 2/26/2008) -- This is the most recent OS for the BB Pearl. I have already updated to this OS version so on my Device the OS is on version 18.104.22.168
3. VZAccess Manager Software -- This is for my air card...nothing to do with BB.
Now, which one of these are you referring to when you say OS? I'm guessing option 2 but that is installed on the Pearl. How am I supposed to install that on the PC?
Thanks for your help....today is the tomorrow we worried about yesterday...

Ok, nevermind. I'm not sure what happened but when all fails start from scratch.
I uninstalled everything and just reinstalled everything again and it seems to be working fine now.
Thanks for the help Chaz....today is the tomorrow we worried about yesterday...

My memory takes quite a while to go down however the issue has lessened since the update to .97. My recommendation, always hit close when closing out of programs, keep your browser cache clean if you notice yourself browsing the internet frequently, of course save every type of media onto memory card and proactively do a soft reset every couple of days or just before going to bed. Other tips are helpful, those are the ones that have helped me.

a soft reset is not the same as a battery pull. a soft reset is when u use the power button or a prog called softreset to turn off the device then turn it back on, a hard reset is when you pull the battery. the hard reset is harder on the device since when you pull the battery you lose power and everything closes at once and the device is dead it dies hard, the soft reset allows the device to go through its closing down procedure of saving settings and other **** like that, its kinda like a pc its better to use the shutdown feature other than uplug it.a soft reset accomplishes the same as a hard reset most of the time. just a piece of knowledge ill pass along to you guys that a learned from the best blackberry site out there crackberry this very same crackberry site
Great explanation Truckman!! Much appreciated. Glad I have the soft-reset.
Just deleted MemoPad....now thinking about Tasks. Just don't use it. Any other "delete" suggestions?________________

The task list is useless though and cannot be synced, so I think I'll get rid of it.
