    i'm on .266 and after a clean wipe fresh install i get 31MB with NO 3rd party apps installed, and after a days use its dropped to under 9MB, bb bold, i have no idea how you guys are getting numbers like you do... i have HORRIFIC MEMORY LEAKS WITH .266 and am anxiously awaiting a new version...
    Can you go into your Options menu, go to Status and then look at Database sizes. What is the size at the top? Any hogs in there?

    Running 266 and available memory is about 42mb after reboot. Settles in to about 32-33mb after a couple of days. I have about 25 or so apps installed, a few launchers, one or two games and one additional theme.

    .266 here. I get about 40mb after a batt pull. Hovers between 32 - 35mb after a day or two. About 10 apps and half a dozen themes at any given point.

    I'm on .266. Never pull my battery. I am guessing I have about 10 3rd party apps - I'm not a huge app user. My Bold is at 42.2 MB right now. It's usually anywhere between 42-45 MB.

    Oh, no problem! I found your info interesting. Just hard to translate to a Bold situation, that's all.

    Love my OS for various reasons but when it comes to the amount of memory free in 24 hours, it is horrendous.

    OS: v4.6.0.167 (Platform 4.0.0.217)
    APPS: 15 of them (Google Maps, Nav4all, Pandora, Bolt, etc)
    Memory Reboot: around 25mb - 30mb
    24 hours later: 6.3mb

    Yesterday I was using Google Maps & Nav4all heavily and I saw my memory at a low 1.7mb. The OS is great on signal and battery life but it has taken a heavy toll on memory usage. Previous OSs were way better with memory on my phone. Anyone having similar issues?

    I think your situation is typical for .167. I think everything else will work well - even better - and your app memory will improve greatly on .266.

    Plus, make sure you're closing your apps properly.

    I'm running on a .266 and have around 50.6mb of free memory after QuickPull. But after 24h of moderate usage it drops to 37-38mb. Is that normal? I always close my applications trough menu>close.

    Here st the list of my apps:
    BEIKS Dictionary Reader
    Marketing dictionary for BEIKS
    Berry Unit Converter
    CaptureIt
    ShrinkIt
    Documents To Go Premium
    Extra Light
    Google Mail
    Google Maps
    Led Reset (never needed it, thinking about delete)
    MaxMem
    PDF To Go
    Qsms
    QuickPull
    Stock Weather Plus theme
    Texas Hold'Em King 2
    Viigo
    Windows Live Messanger
    YWeather

    I've deleted BBM so most of the time there are only 4 apps that runs all the time. I always keep my inbox for sms and mail as empty as possible

    Have you tried the CBerry 101 for 'How to maximize free memory"? Did a lot for me...got me from the 12 range to the 30 range with a .167..

    **NEW**

    OS: v4.6.0.266 (Platform 4.0.0.223)
    APPS: 15 of them (Google Maps, Nav4all, Pandora, Bolt, etc)
    Memory Reboot: around 40mb - 45mb
    24 hours later: 32.3mb

    So I have been using this OS for about a whole day and I must say that everything works much better than v4.6.0.167 (Platform 4.0.0.217). Everything is working out great for far...

    This seems like a good place to ask this newby questions since you are discussing free memory.

    Is their a simple way to identify which programs are presently running and an easy way to close/stop them other QuickPull?

    On my iPAQ, I can go to Memory and it will show which programs are running by name. I can stop individual programs or stop them all at once.

    Seems like this would be helpful when trying to diagnose which programs are memory hogs. I just have not learned all the capabilities of my Bold, yet.

    The best way to look at your open programs is to go into your home screen and click the BB menu to access all your folders and programs. Click on the menu button again to access your options menu (Move, Move to Folder, Hide, Show All, Switch Application) Choose Switch Application and a window will pop up with the programs that are open. Just scroll left and right to view them. There are always 5-6 icons/programs that will stay open on your phone (Phone, Messages, Home Screen, Visual Voicemail, Browser, Blackberry Messenger). Any other program that is open you must manually close it by clicking the menu button while the program is open and then choosing to close it.
