    first rule of storm memory:

    don't check it. just use your phone. if it starts to slow down, hold the BB button to bring up the app switcher screen, and see if any apps are running/open...if they are, close them, and keep using the phone. if you have no apps open, THEN you can check the memory.

    memory is meant to be used. keep that in mind. it isn't something to sit there and just show and look at. the app memory should be used while needed, then once the app is done with it, then the databases should be removed, and memory will come back...it will fluctuate, that is normal.
    My thoughts exaclty. Why all the worry about how much memory? as long as the phone is working, your good.

    Patch and vzwty make a good point. But on my end its all about curiosity and nothing to do with worry. Some of these people are showin some really massive memory drains and as a result are constantly rebooting. Mine settled into the hi 41s and lo 42s so obviously idont have that problem. But at least its nice to know that I can expect pretty close to a 1:1 ratio of leak for the first several hours and then the phone pretty much levels off. The oneswith outta of control memory leaks need to find out why, so they don't have to reboot 3 or 4 times a day and can concentrate on just using their phones.

    it is the 3rd party apps creating databases for faster response and load times, etc...but when the old ones are not being used, they aren't being removed by the app...which is basically bad code writing on the dev's part. poor management of available resources!!!

    Shinking the OS gets rid of unused object (whats the sense of them sittin there doin nothing?) and free up some extra space. So why wouldnt ya shrink Patches? hhaa

    Like I said before, my goal is 67

    shrinkage is BAD!!!

    It depends on which context shrinkage applies. I believe in this context its a great thing. Now what ever you may be talking about is probably a completely different story. haha
