I think the leak is Google Maps. I was running it this morning in satellite view, and went down from 35mb free to 1mb free.

Default Bold Memory Leak.

My Bold leaks fast with only the native apps, nothing added.

The statement posted above that the Bold has lots of memory so the leak won't cause problems for awhile is wishful thinking but not true. My Bold had 20MB free out of the box, same as my Pearl 8100 had. After 5 hours of fiddling, it had 5MB free. Many have reported completely running out of memory and having to restart.

After I removed the unused language support I had just over 40MB free and was down to 15MB before the end of the day. My Pearl had 31MB free after removing the unused languages and was quite stable. I never had to reboot.

Anyone who was hoping to have lots more memory space for apps and email storage is going to be very disappointed unless a major upgrade happens very fast.

My time limit for this upgrade is my 30 day/ 30 min return period. It's going back if it's not fixed by then.

Best regards,

Carl

Default Bold Memory Leak

Oh, one more thing.

I have found that an ALT-RightShift-DEL soft reset is sufficient to restore free memory the the max I have yet seen. I don't need to do a battery pull.

Default I agree, it's the OEM Browser

I second that - we've got a selection of devices, running 4.6.0.126, and 0.134, with and without IT policy; they both have issues. Best fix so far is disable javascript, but I find one of the root causes is web sites with Tickers running on them (go to reuters.com, give it five minutes).

Anyone else had any joy with this?

Everyone needs to get out of the mentality of thinking it's a memory leak - the problem is one of memory utilisation. The device fills up and caches stuff (that makes sense so that loading times for repeat info are fast) but unfortunately when it gets a bit too full it can't cope with it and manifests itself in to deleting call logs, SMS messages and so on. Last week I got a warning on the device and had 1799479 bytes free. I ran a memory clean and had 3937359 bytes free afterwards. For the hell of it I then did a reboot (just to see how effective the memory cleaner was) and had 33942895 bytes free afterwards.

We all suffered the same fate with the Curve, but with the Bold being more media savvy (apparently) and it's web browsing ability we all seem to be noticing it a bit more with this model.
