    wow, thats impressive. one app i absolutely love is JiveTalk from beejive.com. it's a multi-protocol IM application. i think i paid the one time $20 fee, that includes all future updates. it can be transferred to a different device if you get a new phone, etc. so you buy it once, and can take it with you on whatever phone you have, as long as it's one at a time. This way, i can use aim, msn, and yahoo all at once without dealing with separate apps.

    to get bolt i just followed a link from the bolt website. i do recommend it because of its speed. and it doesnt support the click technology the storm brings to the table. it is like surfing the net on an Iphone as much as i hate to say that. you simply just touch the screen to select the desired link.

    no. no pressing down on the screen. just simply tap what you want to select. this sometimes leads to choosing something that you dont want to select though. but the ability to show any website that you so choose in its entirity is a great thing to have in your pocket

    Bolt is a great browser that is in Beta and was invite only. I was lucky enough to get it and I'm sure it will be available soon once they get rid of a few more bugs.

    oh yeah and i also am using 5 email accounts on the storm as well. i dont think email accounts have much to do with app memory besides storing the messages

    you can still get Bolt I did the other day, you need to input the promotion code provided by crackberry in order to get the beta.

    yea that almost pisses me off that you have all those apps and that high of app memory. i run like 6 apps and 4 launchers. and i wipe my phone and run crackmem with every new OS and have had every OS and after a batt pull im only getting 39.6 now

    Man, I've only got 6 apps and 3 email accounts, I need to step up my game apparently, haha. And yes, I also recommend the Bolt browser. Like Danieljbrown32 said, the clicking is different and can be troublesome from time to time, but it's incredibly fast. And, now it switches from portrait to landscape instantly, which it did not do before.

    im sorry. go back to .90. .99 for me was nothing but a race to see how fast the memory could leak. it was horrid. .90 is AMAZING with memory and stability after coming from .99. you will lose the green go button in the browser though. thats it

    also the biggest thing that helped me was i completly removed all the default apps that come with the storm. for example: VZ Navigator, and that waste of space VCast w/ Rhapsody. also go into you DM and disable support and input support for all other languages besides engish

    Care to explain your success with all the apps? Did you do resets after each install? Clean install of .90 (assumed with the downgrade)? How long have you been running .90 again? If over a week, have you had any issues with the backlight staying on? Are you on BES or not?

    Things like this seem to make a difference, in my opinion so your official method that works would be greatly appreciated.

    i have erased all unneeded apps that came on the phone. refer to my previous post for this info. but i have never perfomed a clean install. i always install all new OS over the last one that i installed the previous week. i just always make sure i always close the program i just used and never ever let a program run in the background. if you have viigo make sure to go to options within viigo and turn off the option to allow it to run in the background. and i have been back to .90 now for about 3 days. i used .90 for a week but its memory leak was monsterous.

    I've had my phone for 5 days and already have 10 or so apps on it.......

    I'm running:
    Opera Mini
    ESPN
    weatherbug
    facebook
    yahoo messenger
    blackberry messenger
    captureit
    google maps
    slacker
    quickpull
    vib and ring

    But like a previous poster stated, I deleted a bunch of default apps that i knew i would never need.

    I'm running .99 and have noticed my memory tends to leak......was messing around earlier and checked my memory to see that it was 0, but my berry was still working pretty good (went ahead and done a battery pull though)

    BTW what's everyone's opinion on bolt compared to opera mini?

    Oh, haha,it's an app that let's you watch live streaming hockey games, listen to sports radio, scores, news, highlights and updates but it's only exclusive for Bell clients. I could send you a service book to try but I'm not sure if it would work on verizon.
