Default Memory Loss - is there a minimum memory

Please Login to Remove!

I am running the operating system on ATT. I have installed the Multi Alarm, Vilgo, Live Search, Quick Launch and the Blackberry App World and Quick Pull. I have quick pull set to reboot every morning. After a reboot I have memoery of about 12 mb which qickly goes down to 6-7 mb - by the afternoon I am at 2-3 mb. Any suggestons and is there a minimum memory that I should have. Thanks

Wow. That's pretty low. I know viigo tends to eat up a lot. I got loads of stuff on mine and I'm currently at 28912432 Bytes

Mine would fail to initialize the voice dialing function when app memory dropped below 6 mb. Anything under 10 and I saw spontaneous reboots several times a day. The ATT OS upgrade would be a good idea for you as it frees up about 20mb of app memory.

Also there is a thread flaoting around about optimizing max memory on your blackberry. I would give that a try. 12mb after a reeboot is way too low. I never hit 12 mb ever. Im with Rogers running 4.6.282 and after a reeboot my app memory is 42mb. After a day of use, at the end of the day i see usually anywhere from 25-30 MB..and I have lots of themes and app store apps installed
