    My 8320 has never had much free mem to begin with but within the past couple weeks I have almost none now. A couple months ago when I really became aware of keeping track of it, I usually would have about 18,000,000 free after doing a quick pull, now after using quick pull I have about 7 at best.

    I have no extra apps running in background, I clear my browser cache, messages, call logs, phone log etc. Quick pull goes off automatically every day at 4:20 AM. It is now 11:14 AM and I have 3,708,762 free. What is going on with my phone?

    MY only apps are:
    -google maps
    -quick pull
    -point
    -score mobile
    -berry weather
    -facebook
    -berry converter

    I even deleted memopad and pandora recently which was of no help.

    Help.

    running the stock BB dimension L theme. Never used or dl'ed any themes that didnt come on the phone.

    EDIT: although I have noticed that with this theme, my faves is constantly running in the background now (although i dont think that would cause me to be so low mem wise after a quick pull)

    I use Google Maps, Poynt, and Berry Weather. I don't have any memory problems with them. I don't use the other apps you list. What was the last app you installed before you noticed the problem? If you aren't sure, try uninstalling apps one at a time, one per day, and see if you can identify the culprit. I'd start with Facebook, Score Mobile, and Berry Converter since I don't have any experience with those apps.

    My newest app I believe is Poynt and thats been there for prob 2 months or so I would guess. All the other apps have been there since almost day 1.

    What OS are you running? Have you ever performed the CrackBerry Memory Optimization Procedure? If you haven't, it will help a lot. You can access it from the link in my sig.

    I have not done it but I'll give it a try. I never did it before because the 17 I had free was good enough to get me to my next scheduled quick pull. Im running OS 4.5.0.81

    Now I know everyone says You cant get a virus on your BB but hear me out atleast on this. About the same time that this started happening with my BB, my AOL e-mail account was hacked. I have this acct on my BB as well. I have never opened any of the links that are in the e-mails my acct now sends out. However, I just so happen to go into my pics last week and where it shows camera, device memory and my pix folder, there were 2 files located in there that were never there before. They were both pics of the aol logo which I deleted. I could be wrong but I assume these were related to my hacked aol acct. Any possibility there is a connection here?

    TIA. In the meantime I'm going to see if I can do that MOP.

    It's unlikely the AOL hack affected your BlackBerry. Deleting the pics was probably a good preventive measure, in case they were virus-carriers that could have carried a virus to your PC, but so far there have been no viruses identified that can execute on and infect a BlackBerry.

    I agree, something is wrong. Reloading your OS and your apps may be necessary to solve the problem.

    Ugh I dont want to do that lol. I did it once before so it will be less scary this time but the real pita is getting the codes to redownload apps.

    Do I bite the bullet and do it or just take advantage of t-mobiles 12 month upgrade and drop $130/piece for 2 9700's?

    If you have the money to spare, the 9700 will be a significant upgrade over your 8320.
