    I have a Bold 9900 with 7.1.0.714 (7.1 bundle 2061).

    I found this OS version quite buggy…:
    - Sometimes (quite often actually) it froze for 1-2 seconds, sometimes for 5-10 seconds
    - The memory goes from 150MB to 30MB in less than 2 days
    - When I reboot it it froze on reboot and I have to reboot it again for like 4-5 times

    The battery life at least is good!

    I don't have time for OSs experimentation…do you know which version is the best for both battery life and memory management (I suppose the Bold froze when the memory is very low or fragmentated…)?

    There is no easy answer, you can read any OS thread and find that some people love it and some hate it.

    I would advise doing a wipe and clean install of both your OS and Apps given the issues you are having:

    As to which OS to use, try the latest .923 and see how it goes.

    This is the current version from Vodafone UK and was on the new 9900 that I have had since March this year.

    I have not had any of the problems that you mention, or any other problems.

    The phone just does what it is supposed to do.
