Default Why Apps Memory Dump so Fast?

Please Login to Remove!

Ok... here is the problem.

I'm using Bold 9000.
Since I realize that it only has 128MB of Apps Memory, I'm beginning to choose the application that I wanna use.

Now, I have the following apps in it:
- regular OS
- East Asia Language (Indonesian, Chinese Simplified, Japan)
- Facebook
- Windows Live Messenger
- Yahoo Messenger
- Google Talk
- Drive Safe.ly
- and couple web shortcut

When I restart the device, the remaining apps memory still about 11-12 MB. But not only 24 hours, it begins to dump until reach 4MB remaining.

Maybe anyone can tell me, what makes the apps memory dump so fast?
And, how it can be fixed?

I've done that all.
when I press the menu for a bit, there's only: Drive Safe.ly, Phone, Home Screen, Yahoo Messenger, BBM, Messages, and Browser.
do you think all of em can dump memory up to 6MB?

Dump any unneeded languages that may still be in your phone, as well as any games. Those messenger programs do leak when running aimlessly

Also, close the third party apps so that they are not running in the background and update your os, it might fix the issue.

if i don't restart my bold, eventually it goes down to like 41k and a menu pops up telling me to uninstall apps cause i only have 9 apps running at all time. I honestly believe it has to do with the fact that the bold has half the ram of the bold2 and wasn't designed for the OS 5s ram increase. Shortsightedness on RIMs part im guessing. Or i'm r*tarded and i don't know how to use my phone. Either way, it sucks having to babysit this phone.
