    A battery pull is hard reset which means it terminates all running processes on your phone. A soft reset does not. Therefore, the two will boot up with different amounts of memory with a hard reset giving you more.

    And a third different memory reading you will get (as i found out) is when you install a new os it will be even higher than after a hard battery pull, being all apps have been completly shut off, which is why some ask for permission to change settings, while some apps hold your information after a battery pull like Viigo, Vlingo Weatherbug, after a update that information is not stored on the device anymore and you have to reenter all the passwords and user names thus higher memory.

    Yeah I understand the difference between the two resets, what I am getting at is if I soft reset it twice, I boot with different memory each time... Same with a batt pull.. Do it two times different number, never constant

    should be constant, have you tried with Quikpull, works better than soft reset for me...it allway gave me the same mem at start up, and you can set it to do an automatic resset every day...
