    so i can't figure out what's going on with my blackberry. i've been experiencing serious memory drain in the last month and i can't figure out why. so here's what's happening: i do a batt pull and my phone starts out at about 12 million bytes free...within 3-4 hours it's usually around the 500,000 mark...if i let it go for 8 hours or so it drops to zero. everytime, without fail. at first i thought it was sensobi contacts because it was the last thing i downloaded before this started happening. deleted it, same problem. EXCEPT now there's a new twist, i've been doing batt pulls and the memory is starting out lower and lower...i've cleared allll my messages, browser cache, everything, but nothing seems to work. i just did a battery pull, and it started out at 5 million. yesterday it started at 9. what in the heck is goin on?! sorry this is so long winded, i just want to be thorough in what is happening so perhaps i can get to the bottom of this! thanks guys!

    memory is so hard to pin point without looking at the device in its entire with everything installed. It could be tied to a 3rd party app.

    You really need to get a handle on your file free memory. Starting at 12 is way to low a starting point. Right away when you start out, your device is going to use 5 to 8 MB just to run. What you're seeing isn't a leak, it's just your device running. I'm on wap and can't see what device you have, but you really need to follow the memory guide, and take a look at your apps and themes - if you have them. Some have got to go.
