Before the kill it had no free memory. I have check the device and it only seems to have four days worth of email but yet the device seems to be running out of memory! Is the blackberry OS using 11MB of Memory?
I support a large number of BlackBerry users (among other things), and your experience is what I've seen on all devices with 16Mb or less of memory. We're trying to get users to upgrade their devices so they can sync wirelessly and retain more than a day or two of email.
You can try to free up a bit more memory by removing unneeded things - Brick Breaker, Foreign Language Support, etc. If you don't use Notes/Memos or Tasks, get rid of them. You can do it on the Blackberry itself, or with the Application loader.
Amazon has several nice deals on Blackberries, although most require a new service plan. Go to: http://www.amazon.com/gp/search/002-4932718-0708826/ref=wr_pho_fb_sam/002-4932718-0708826?node=301187&field-vendor=BlackBerry
