I agree there seems to be a mem leak as mine drops significantly through out the day. .76 seem better when i had it vs VZW firmware

I am running the .76 OS and have the same problem. After a reboot my memory is close to 45 MB free. After a day or two it drops down. The low point for me seems to be hovering somewhere between 15 and 17 MB free.

I posted about this same memory leak issue on mine. I can get away with doing a battery pull every couple of days - it's really not that bad though I agree a fix is needed. Just yank it as soon as the phone starts acting up and it'll be good again for another couple of days or so.

I feel that the .76 OS is better, but still not perfect. I have yet to see my memory drop below 30MB using .76 for a few days.

funny thing is that no one here every actually mentioned a "problem." seems like a bunch of people constantly checking their free memory limit for no other reason than just to check it. is this "low memory condition" actually causing problems?
