    Until recently I was definitely a Agendus person. However last week I upgraded my PlanPlus for Outlook to version 7 and rceived with it the PocketInformant 2.10.3679. I LOVE the UI - it reminds me of the days I had my Palm Tungsten W and the agenda program I had there. It is clean, efficient and has numerous views to use. However with the new OS 5.0.0.607 my only BB experience with this - the memory drain seem huge and I do not know if it is Pocket Informant or the system.
    What are others experiences of this? I know there is a huge drain with the most recent 5 OS's but is it also PocketInformant that is causing the leak?
    I have had to remove some of my other 'must have' programs to 'have' PI and keep it running.

    I also use Pocket Informant on Sprint's OS 5.0.0.484 and I have not had any memory leaks. My memory may go down about 1-2 MB during the day, but then it always did, even before installing PI. I completely shut it down when exiting it, is that what you do? I love PI and would not be without it.

    Thanks for the info. I love PI and really do not want to drop it. So I am trying to figure out where the Mem leak actually is.

    Well, I guess what I mean by shutting it down, is that I click Options then Exit, instead of just putting it into the background with the red phone button. My alarms for events and tasks still work, but I thought it would just save on memory.

    Also no mem leak on my ATT 9700 running .405. Usually PI is running in the background during the week and closed on weekends. Closest thing to datebk (from my palm TE days) I have found.

    I'm curious what advantage there is to leaving PI running in the background? It seems to open very quickly if I Exit from it. I also used Datebk6 on my Palm Treos.

    It does open slightly faster when left running in the background, but mostly I leave it open because I like having access to it from the app switcher.

    Thanks for the input. I have a terrible memory leak right now, end up having to reboot 3 - 4 times a day. I cannot figure out which app it is. I read that themes can be huge memory drains but others are reporting no leak from the same theme. (Bold 3G by RedZapper) - so I am at a loss as to what is causing the leak.
