Bold. I have not done a baattey pull since having it from some 6/7 weeks.
Tonight noticed that my 2 years of past dates were gone, the furture ones were still there so checked the memory and it said 0000000 so did a battery pull and the memory was back to a good level so had to do a restore on a daily back up from desktop.thank goodness I do thei every day.
Can you let me know why this happens and is there a fix or should I safely do a battery pull once a week?
Many thanks.

Yes, once a week or even more frequently if you notice your memory getting low. About 12 MB seems to be the start of the critical level. That's when stuff can start to disappear. I used to check my free memory every other day, just to be safe. Alt + Shift + H should bring up an info screen and if you scroll down you'll come to Free Memory. Quick and easy way to keep an eye on it. The good news is that with the new Blackberry Bold and OS 4.6.0.162 the memory leak looks solved. So there's hope for everyone as the new OS begins to trickle out to present models like the Curve.
