    BB 8800 27meg spare when I got it.

    26.5 once address book was imported.

    Just looked at my spare memory now after 5 days

    16meg left.

    cleared web browser.

    cleared unimportant messages

    17meg spare.

    bid a battery pull, back to 26.5meg spare.

    what was taking up the 10megs of memory?

    and can I clear it without a battery pull?


    on the plus side I did not have to send the service books to get email back on

    I got the "soft reset" program for my Pearl so I can do a reset w/o having to pull the battery. Like most computers, the BB's need to have a little TLC performed to keep the memory freed up and it performing well.

    i dont think the fragmented memory is completely cleared with a soft reset
    a soft reset is alt/right shift/delete with a curve
    a battery pull once a week or whenever necessary is the best medicine

    Battery pull once a week seems to be an acceptable idea.


    better than the poke the reset hole on my HTC touch 3 times a day
