    It comes with 128MB of app memory which is used by many things, including apps, themes, the OS, personal data (contacts, calendar, etc). Some people have noticed an improvement with available app memory after upgrading to one of the newer OS builds.

    Also remember that many of the people who have 50+ app memory available have deleted many things that the device came with. Go to the How-To section of the Storm forums, and you will see how-to threads on optimizing your app memory.

    Yes that is a normal amount of free memory. With a bare bones OS install you will max out around 53-55 MBs.

    Just a word of advice, don't sweat how much free memory you have, if the phone is running ok then no worries. As I've said before memory is there to be used not counted. People in this forum obsess over memory for no logical reason.

    Thank you... I should have added that. I agree.
