    I was the biggest seller of the Bold, even when I didn't have one. I finally got one and everything seemed perfect, except.....You can't use any more than 3 third party applications without your memory decreasing to nothing. You can't install apps on your memory card like you can with the Treo, and you can't use some of that extra 1Gb space for applications.

    What use is it to have a brand new App World, if you can only use 4 apps because of memory.....

    I'm waiting patiently for a fix, but if I don't see some updates soon, I'm going to go iPhone. I hated the idea of typing on a touchscreen, but I have to give it to Apple...they come out with new features and updates all the time and now with 3.0 coming out....

    Come on Blackberry do the right thing....Give me more app memory or fix the leaks and the Bold would be perfect!

    Wow, you must have a defective unit. I counted 28 third party apps (plus some other small utils) installed on mine, including some large memory users, and still have 20+/- mb free even after some memory bleed.

    Ummm I'm an iPhone advocate but your reasoning makes NO sense being that the iPhone can run ONE program at a given time. Push notifications are not the same thing at all so even when 3.0 is released you will have this restriction. Also, being that the new iPhone is expected to be released in July your entire decision is quite foolish.

    I currently have 20 apps and 5 themes installed and have not had any issues with performance at all.

    I do hope you get what you're looking for in the iPhone, however. Stop by the CB community if you get the itch.

    Me as well, I have 31 apps installed and a couple tweaks (berrybuzz, aerize optimizer, etc) and I have around ~28MB throughout the day, aeriez optimizer also keeps it in check, why don't you give that a try? Its free for 7 days. Don't leave, the bold is better! Don't be ANOTHER person with the iPhone...

    3 apps?? Yup, has to be your individual device.

    I have close to 30 apps installed and often run many of them at once. As you'll see in the above referenced thread, my memory dipped low but only because I had a ridiculously large number of apps open (for test purposes). My device never dips below 27mb free.

    Your post has a decidedly trollish whiff to it. As jmwein indicated, you can only run ONE app at a time on the iPhone right now. I actually have 6, count 'em, 6 apps running right now (berTwitter, Facebook, BOLT, Google Maps, WHERE, and Weathereye) and I've lost a whopping total of 0.2 MB. Try that on the iPhone. Better yet, try trolling elsewhere.

    I have about 30 apps on my Bold with no problems at all and with an extra 30 mb left so maybe you need to get another berry before you go buy an iPhone that can only run one app at a time.

    Ah yes, the iPhone...

    I personally have had an iPhone 3G since release, and used it daily until saturday. I am now running on a bold.

    Things I didnt really like about the iPhone:

    Virtual keyboard: No-go for me. I cannot count the times when I have been close to throwing it out the window purely due to aggravation in regards to using that keyboard. (My wife has an iPhone, and has no issues with the virtual keyboard).

    Apps: I am personally going for no-frills apps, that just WORK. I don't need a massive multitude of games, funny apps and so on.

    Running multiple apps: Need I say anything here? Seriously? Yes, I'm aware that backgrounder works when having a jailbroken phone, which I did. And whoop-di-doo, battery life was almost non-existent. with just THREE apps running, I killed my battery in about 5 hours. With no apps running, I could have a battery-life of about 2 days. Running multiple apps on iPhone is just not an option for me.

    Thats about it.

    As I see it, there's a phone for everyone. Some may like Bold, others the iPhone. To each their own. After almost a year with iPhone, I personally am happy as **** to have "converted" to the bold.

    Good luck with whatever you choose.

    I am running .247, perhaps it will help me if you guys could tell me how many times a week you do battery pulls to keep ur bold's running smooth.

    Running 5 apps at the moment. Did a battery-pull earlier, but was due to my MMS acting up (which, btw, seems to be more than just me with that problem today). Have never done a battery-pull due to lack of memory, as of yet.

    I have about 7 or 8 apps, but once I open viigo, messages and phone call logs get deleted, I see the constant "wait" clock and my memory eventually ends up a zero. I think it's poor software/memory management.
