    Ok so I have had my "side convenience key" set to Memory Cleaner to keep my phone from freezing now we have Vlingo free and it takes up the "side convenience key"... A way around this is use "Universal Search" to search for "Memory Cleaner" then hit the Menu Key and select "Save search" Rename it to Memory Cleaner and click "Add". Now you have it as an Icon on your Home Screen.
    Now tap that Icon and clear your memory every few hrs

    Do you really need to clear the memory every couple of hours? What is RIM doing, going backwards? I don't need to do this on OS 5.

    You can set the memory cleaner to do its thing while the device is idle, no need to do it manually.

    +1 : great ease of use.
    And also to display a icon (by default, in the Applications folder, but you can move it).
    While at it ... this was posted on CB a few days ago :

    Memory cleaner doesnt help much.

    I have to restart my 9930 daily. I use the device analyzer to check when my phone starts lagging.

    But even after a restart, I only have 23-25% free memory

    its never been any higher than that. When it gets below 15% its asks me to restart.

    Memory Cleaner doesn't stop your device from freezing. It only removes a minute amount of sensitive data from a handful of caches and databases. If anything, excessive use of Memory Cleaner will actually cause your device to freeze.

    There is only one way to recover memory from a lagging Java based UI, and that's the battery pull... nuff said.

    Or just press together: alt+right shift+ delete

    That's free too, no app needed


    type 'device' in the universal search and choose options.

    Choose Blackberry Device Analyzer > 'Issues with Device Responsiveness" you will have the option to press Restart if needed.

    Memory Cleaner is a security feature. It cleans sensitive data (like passwords you might have copied and pasted from Password Keeper) from your BlackBerry's memory.

    Guess I'm one of the lucky ones, my 9810 has never ever froze since I've got it in January, running Bell bundle 921, no memory cleaning, no battery pulls

    QuickPull like every app of it's kind does nothing more than force the phone to run the
    Garbage Collector, something it will do without the app (s) OR the users intervention.

    Memory Cleaner is useless unless the user has Content Protection enabled, which the
    majority of users do not and don't really need to.

    Clears the clipboard also. But if your device is freezing you haven't solved the poblem, you just put a bandaid on the result.
