new storm and massive memory leak
I just got a storm two days ago after having a curve for about two years. I'm really liking the storm, but this thing leaks memory bad. I only have a handful of downloaded apps and no themes. I don't have any extra apps running and I'm having to pull the battery about three times a day. It goes from 28megs to 8megs rather quickly. Is this normal or are there any storm todos I'm not doing?

OMG Get a bucket ur memory is leakin out everywhere!!!
Does the thing run bad? Crash? Drop calls? If the only problem is that you see the "application memory" goes from "high" to "low" (according to your definition) then you really need to find something better to do with your time.I swear I didn't post this while driving!

Yes its pretty normal. I know I will get burnt for saying this but thats one of the reasons I sold my storm on craigslist and got a Tour. But you do what you feel is right in your heart. To be honest I miss my Storm.The Droid is not a princess, its a ROBOT.

Well lets ask a standard question what apps do you have downloaded ?
It could just be one app that has your memory going down.You Just Wasted 5 Seconds Of Your Life Reading This Signature, How Do You Feel ???

Im going to say get rid of viigo and facebook and then put them on one at a time and wait a couple hours and see how your memory does but since you only have 3 apps Id do it with all of them just to make sure. But somthing is deffinetly wrong I mean I have about 19 apps on my storm and my memory almost never goes below 30mb and your saying yours is brand new with 3 apps and its already down to 8mb, maybe you should try to load a newer OS.You Just Wasted 5 Seconds Of Your Life Reading This Signature, How Do You Feel ???

.148 is horrible for memory managment. I had the same exact problem and was solved immediately when I upgrade to .151. Haven't had a problem at all with memory leaks for over a month now.
I highly recommend that you upgrade to the leaked .151 ASAP. You'll be much happier! I guarantee it.

I second that!
I've actually done many upgrades since then, but that's just because I'm addicted.
The difference from .75 to .148 was incredible, but the jump from .148 to .151 was amazing. Much faster phone, no memory leak, more stable OS. You can't go wrong with that OS.

I had many OS' on my blackberry and found that .151 is the best You really can't go wrong with it. Once you upgrade the OS leave it for a day and see if there is any memory leaks. If you have none, then install one app, run it for a bit and then check for memory leaks. If you have one then the app is the problem. If you happen to install a theme, run the theme for a day or so and see if you have memory leaks. If so, delete the theme.
You can repeat this process until you have all your apps on. This should help you track down any problems.
You may also want to look at the exception log. Anything with an error 5 isn't working well and probably should be deleted.
