Some memory loss like that is normal as the device runs. Is it running down to 0? What 3rd party apps do you have installed?

You shouldn't have to. If you have 20Mb free, you should be fine. It may run down at times but I wouldn't worry too much until it gets less than 10. It's a good idea to reboot it once a week anyway.

Do you have a memory card for pictures? Every device is different on memory useage as every device has different apps. It's normal to see the memory run down a few meg after using for a bit.

That's not that out of the ordinary. If it goes to less than 10 I'd be worried. What theme are you using?

Why would you install themes if you have a problem with memory? Do you use "Switch Application" a lot from the home screen?
