Hello everyone. I'm new here, and I have a question. I did a search and didn't find the answer I need. I have a Tmobile 8100 operating on 4.2.0 and up until recently, it was hovering above 22 MB of free memory, and I would reset every 3 days or so to maintain that. I noticed recently that the memory was topping out at about 20 MB, even when I reset it. I transferred most of my pictures off the phone, and that didn't solve the issue. I put a 2 GB SD card in today and moved all the pictures to the card. That brought it up to 21 MB, then I cleared the browser cache, nothing. Deleted all my messages and emails (which had built up quite a bit), and deleted my call logs and Blackberry Messenger (which I don't use). Now, it is at 21.8 MB.
What I am wondering is, why is my memory lower than usual when I am using less memory than ever before? Should I be concerned?
By the way, the only third party apps I have on the phone are the soft reset and colorpearl that I got from this forum.
I did, and I may attempt that soon, it is a little intimidating, but I might get brave soon. I just wonder why the memory is all of a sudden lower than usual when I don't even have as much stuff on there. I am mostly concerned because I had to delete so much in order to get it close to where it was. I read about memory leaks, and this phone was too expensive to start having problems.

I wouldn't say you're losing any memory. Many folks here get down to 0Mb free. I say, go for it on the optimizing. It's not as hard as it seems and you'll have around 30Mb free memory when you're done.
