    try deleting unwanted help files, other languages and demo video files...that should proba save you some memory...

    If the problem still persists, go ahead and start uninstalling each app one by one...

    Yes Facebook has been a known issue for this. I would wait to try the new version that is suppose to come out in Jan 09 to see if there are improvements.

    Facebook and Viigo both have many user reports here for memory leaking.

    Closing the application won't always resolve the losses due to a memory leak. The general concept is that if a process requests memory allocation the owner (same process) *must* release the allocation when it is no longer required - and in any case immediately before the parent app terminates. Other applications are not allowed to touch the allocated memory. If this release fails an orphan block of addresses will be marked as 'used'. The memory manager should respect that allocation even if the app is closed, and the block will be skipped by garbage collection and never returned to pool. Next time you open the app it does the same trick again, and another block is marked, and another, and....

    what should the "normal" amount of memory be?

    I have the following:
    google maps
    crackberry link
    Opera Mini
    google mobile apps
    the weather channel

    I have 31.5 MB of application memory free, along with 851 MB of free space (Device memory).. is this typical?

    I did get a "low memory" message earlier this evening and it promted me to delete the spanish language...

    I got this same message and deleting the spanish did nothing to improve space, anyone else have a clue?

    30MBytes free memory should not trigger a low memory alert.

    My Bold hovers around 30MB as well but I have never received a low memory warning.

    Do you have a Twitter client running in the background? I've noticed that TweetGenius can leak some memory, but Ubertwitter and SocialScope seem much better....

    There is an app called Memory Flash, that releases those "held" blocks of ram. I have been using it for a week and can actually see the difference in free memory and performance.

    if you have facebook configured with your cell number i think you can still email a photo directly from your BB to mobile@facebook.com and it should post directly to your account.
