I know this subject has been well discussed, but I still can't seem to get my phone working consistently. I have 4.5.0.135 on it now with only 5m for media on the device and have trimmed essentially every application (memo, doc to go, etc) except the voice app, but still can't get my memory over 10. i am thinking of bricking the phone and starting over, but am worried about truly creating a bricked phone. It is a Verizon so I would have no support if it crashed totally and I could not get it back to 4.2.

The real trouble is I loose calls and the phone hangs up often. Any help would be desired.

Have you gone through Mr. Clark's recommendations.

You should be able to get at least 13.

Frankly, not since I discovered too many applications, has my 8830 had more than 7-8megs of memory available. Maybe I do have to reboot a bit too often to recovery memory but I'm not aware that I've lost any email or calendar events. I will admit that I don't do heavy email and only have a few items on my calendar per week. I just can't seem to pare down the applications that I THINK I NEED!!!!

You may want to look at the Quick Pull application.

I find it an easy way to get your memory back, and it has the function where you can schedule a re-boot at a certain time (say 3 in the morning lol), although I haven't tried that yet.

The reality is that device has limited memory for todays standards.

Expect many battery pulls.

That is all too true, if the 8830 had as much memory as the 8330 I probably would have stuck with it.

I think I managed to get 21-23 MB with my 8830 after 4.5. However it was more 14-16 MB... Too low for my liking. And that was after using the memory optimization thread.

After installing 4.5.0.135 last week (and going through the "optimization" thread), I now have around 16mb free vs. around 10mb on 4.5.0.77. So far, I'm "thrilled" with .135!

Thanks all.
I have tried Mr. Clarks' process and still have little memory. I think it is because I actually have 8 emails and a full calendar. I will look for the quick pull application since this might be the best option.

I just dropped my os back to 4.22 which took me up to 20mb. I then downloaded 4.5 and used crackmem to clean it up and desktop to load it. Now I have 17mb loaded.
