    That is an excellent point to bring up on Weatherbug gate If the OP doesn't use it for alerts then I would suggest trying something different, the worst case scenario is that you can always put it back on if you miss it

    Some weather apps are bigger mem eaters, if you said weather bug is good one why not just keeping that one, also you can check with them if they offer the sms or email alerts so that way you don't need to have the icon app instaled but you will get the alerts anyway, is how works for me, as for the themes, if they are available via OTA, you can bookmark the page where they are loocated and have only one installed, that way if you want to switch themes just redownlad the theme and you are ready to go.
    Also make sure that allways close any apps hitting the menu key and selecting close, avoid to keep the I'm programs opened at al times (aka MSN).
    Hope that can help you a bit.

    Weather apps are your first suspicion. I am using berry weather and absolutely love it. It does cost $10 but there is a free trial. Might want to see if its better. I would also suggest keeping less than 3 themes as it really slows things down. I don't know if you tried this, but if you delete OEM wallpapers, you can gain up to 5mb more. Also look into Shrink-a-OS by lyricidal to add even more memory. Good luck.

    In addition to everyone else's comments I have to point out the VZ Navigator is a memory whore so is Visual Voicemail. First thing I did when I got my phone was uninstall those programs and I have to see less than 40mb of memory.

    VZ Navigator
    V-Cast Music
    Weather Bug
    Weather Eye
    StormSlider
    StormLock
    Visual Voice Mail
    Facebook
    QuickPull
    BB Maps
    BB Messenger
    Windows Live Messenger
    A few themes
    The standard games that came with the phone

    These are pretty much all of them... Any ideas?
