    It says I have 129691600 is this a good amount of memory to have? Should I have more because I used maxmem to remove a lot of programs? And how does this measure up next to yours crackberry nation?

    You do not have to worry about free memory on your 8900 curve ...

    I have 106 MB..... as ST79 said you shouldn't have an issue with FF memory.

    This is by a huge margin more than any other BB on the active market right now.

    I have around 129MB after a battery pull. As stated before, if you magically fall below 15MB, then you should worry about memory! Since that most likely will never happen, you have no worries what so ever!

    Reboots are definitely the trick. I will go from ~100mb free all the way to ~135mb free. Some apps save a lot to the cache, just keep that in mind (cough, viigo, cough)

    I don't always do a battery pull... try doing a soft restart - Alt + Right Shift + Del... battery pulls are too much work most of the time.

    Yeah, especially if you have an Innocase installed!

    Coming from a curve 8320 with it's 20 to 25 mb. We have an insane amount of memory on these 8900's. We would advise people to go through the memory guide and keep their ffree above 12 minimum. I wouldn't advise anyone use maxmem or crackmem to remove stuff, you don't need to and you run the risk, with maxmem anyway, of removing something you shouldn't. It's not like we have bolds or storms. I'd advise relaxing and enjoying your device, we don't need to worry about file free memory anymore. Make sure you clear your cache and maybe the event log once in a while, make sure you close apps properly, and do a reset every week or so and you'll be just fine.

    Just so you can compare, I've stripped down my pearl to the bare essentials plus one theme, quick pull, and weather eye. File free after a re boot is 24gigs, on 4.5 OS

    To put it in perspective, my old 8320 had about 11-15mb which is the not so good zone. My new 8900 has about 126-129ish on average (only had it 2 days). Oh, and I've got way more apps on my new 8900 then I ever did with the 8320.
