Having the same issue. Mine is an AT&T bold which came w/ .167 installed. Have only had it since Monday but I notice major memory leaks and it is inconsistent. Yesterday I did an Alt-Shift-Del reboot and had 25mb of free memory. Maybe an hour later I had around 3mb!!! All I did in the interim was send and receive a few emails, make a few phone calls and use the web browser. The only 3rd party apps I have installed are Facebook and Google Maps.

Also my battery life isn't so hot....can easily go a day but no where near 2. I have Wifi off, bluetooth on and GPS on. I never really use GPS, in fact I have a hard time getting it to lock on in NYC - will turning that off help matters?

I am in NYC so I have a pretty good 3G signal most of the time. Every now and then it will kick to EDGE but rarely.

Overall love the phone (seems really speedy) but not impressed w/ memory or battery usage.

Haven't tried any other OSs on the Bold so nothing to compare it to.
