I have run 9 different OS's for the Bold (not that many by the standards of some), between 18.104.22.168 to 22.214.171.124. For me at least, 126.96.36.199 (AT&T) which you show in your profile, was THE absolute worst of the OS's that I have tried to date for bootup time, available memory and the speed of the available application memory degrading.
Most of the OS's that I have used would boot up with N MB memory free, and would drop to N - 5 MB within a few hours, and then stabilize near there or at least go down slowly. However, with 188.8.131.52, it was like the Energizer Bunny: it kept going and going and going [down].
That said, it never got to the point of deleting call logs, messages, etc. nor did I require rebooting several times a day. The newer OS's, particularly those that are 184.108.40.206 or higher, boot up faster and average 10 MB more free on bootup (just my personal observation, YMMV) than earlier OS versions.
