    Hi All, i have just installed PBTask manager

    and have noticed that it says i have USED RAM 99% and flash used 66%

    My Used ram being 99% what does this mean? I have 30odd meg free for application storage and My media card has 7GB free.. I have only a few programs running in background i.e leave it on and batteryex and bebuzz...

    Could this be the cause of my phone running slowly with a specific theme when other users report its fine?

    (P.S i have quickpull and have memoryup pro, do memorycleanups everyday...)

    Your input is greatly appreciated.

    My input is, almost every bb site calls bull on apps like MemoryUp Pro... All they do is call up a native function on your device (some apps do have a few more features), so people usually pay for something the berry already does in the background.

    You have a 9700 right? On ~30mb free? That's ~11% of your memory which is not. much when you start running apps.

    I'd suggest you backup (Desktop Software), wipe the device, grab the latest OS ( I say) and shink the **** out of it using BBHybridsTool. Shrinking rule is simple: if you don't use it, never saw it or don't like it, shrink it out.

    Load the shrunk OS, load your backup, load your apps/themes (manually or from a backup) and you should still have ~60mb and a device that's running well.

    Thanks for the advice... Yes i have a 9700 and the latest OS .600, I have now removed a few programs such as berryweather etc and its now displaying it has 62% used RAM...

    I will defiently go home and shrink the os later tonight, The one thing i seem to have trouble with, i dont know if you do is, when i restore from bbask (Applications) I have to re-iput the license codes/settings and also redownload blackberry app world.

    Memoboo is showing that i have 100.8mb ram free, and 130mb total, Batteryex showing i have 95mb RAM free, and 67M/280 FLASH memory free.

    I hope this helps.
