I'm having some issues on my Bold, and considering the advice in my last post, I'm going to wipe it and do a clean install.

However, once I do that, I want to know what to expect. My "Free Application Memory" in options has been draining like crazy. I'll reboot and it's at 20 or 18, and hours later, it's down to 0mb. Of course, this isn't the best scenario. But how can one read the Free Application Memory space? If you turn on your Berry and you don't install or uninstall any apps, shouldn't that number stay the exact same? Or is that a number that changes while the Berry is on, like RAM or something? I take the term "application memory" literal, meaning that that's space dedicated to installing/uninstalling diff bb apps.

Help me out here. I HATE wiping my bb, so I'm hoping this'll be the last time I have to do so for a while.

yes App memory is like RAM.
for example, using app world will decrease the app memory the longer you use it.
once closed, the app free memory will go up.
