    Increasing Storm Memory

    Hi, hope someone can help.
    I am having a serious memory leak and would like some expert information :-)
    My memory starts of around 20 mb, and shortly thereafter it drops to around 7 or 8 mb

    A few Questions:-
    1) How does memory work on the storm 1... ?

    2) Is it comparable to RAM memory in a Computer?

    3) It seems as if many programs that are installed on the storm, automatically use memory, whether they are running or not.

    I see people talking about having 40 or 50 mb free memory.
    The most I have ever had free is around 33mb.

    4) What or Which programs use up this "RAM" memory?

    5) What programs or Files can be removed to recover Memory?
    I am interested to know which files I can delete off, and regain memory?

    6) When programs are closed, is the memory released?
    and can it be recovered without a Battery Pull or Quick Pull.

    7) Is physically removing the battery as effective as using Quick Pull?

    Applications installed:-
    Weather bug
    BlackberryOS 2.5 theme
    FileScout
    BB Appworld
    QuickPull
    Talklock
    Ubertwitter
    Business Week
    EBay
    RDM+
    Documents to Go

    Been using the Storm for around a year... tried various Hybrids and themes...
    Thanks in advance

    I did a bit of research into how the Storm's memory is laid out for a post I made awhile back. If you are interested in learning more, i'd recommend you read my entire thread - it doesn't answer ALL of your questions, but I think after a quick read; you will understand what is happening better.

    Unless that theme is 5.0 compatible I would remove it!

    you could do a security wipe and wipe user installed applications and then add them on one by one.

    UberTwitter is a huge leak....also a battery killer if you don't have it set up smartly.
