Default Memory Leak in 4.2 OS?

Please Login to Remove!

We constantly getting users with 0 KB free, and we were trying to trace it down to extra apps, pictures not stored on the card, Bloomberg for Blackberry, but seems to just happen over time, even clearing cache doesn't help, we have to remove the battery, and it all of a sudden gains a couple megs of memory back... of course already after deleting ALL the user's messages.

I'm going to try the latest 4.5 OS, see if I have any better luck, on of my users is on 4.5 and so far so good... but just wanted to hear if anyone else had such problems with 4.2. Thanks, Bill

all os'es have a memory leak even the 4.5 ones,

best is to use the john clark's thread on how to free up memory.

Yeah I had a memory leak in my Verizon 8130 Pearl, never got an update, eventually switched to the curve and I love it!

I have a Curve, but I think the memory leaks as well. I still have to do battery pulls to keep my memory up. Does anyone know why this happens with Blackberries? Is it poor programming, or something else?

As far as the 4.5 suggestion, I agree with wabbit. The beta I am using is pulling out memory at twice the rate as the stable 4.2 product I was usibg.

I've never had memory issues with any of my models on any OS version.

I think a lot of people are misusing the term "memory leak" or using it as a scapegoat.
