    OK. now THATS funny!!!!!! 2-3 times a day. your hilarious.

    I hear what your saying about if the phone works, then leave it. I have been checking the mem constantly to see whats happening with it and have noticed that I went from 11mb an hour ago, to 18mb after surfing the web, and now im at 8.5. but its working fine, so whatever. im still getting to know this phone (got it for christmas) and am trying to figure out why its "drag ass slow" some days and others its not so slow. I've never found this thing to be quick by any stretch.

    Quick pull is a piece of junk. I've been using it for a while and (i should say trying to use it) its flaky. half the time it doesn't work and just goes into space. there must be something better.
    You actually have to make some setting changes to get it to work correctly
    Options>Advanced Options>Applications> Highlight "Phone" do not click>BB button> Edit permissions and allow all.

    You may also while youre in the applications highlight Quick Pull> BB button and disable compatibility mode. If you want to use it

    I agree, I hate Quick Pull. I had it for about a day and got rid of it. I have not had to pull my battery in a few weeks. I do once in a while just to refresh things a bit. Each OS release is better with the freeze ups, thank god.

    15MB before battery pull

    And boy was the BB crawwwwwwling!! It was taking about 10 seconds just for the screen to switch from landscape to portrait! I think it was a couple weeks that I had not done a battery pull (got busy, lazy, or both). But I just did it and I am back up to 41MB now.

    I do use the screen lock a lot, whenever I am not using the phone. So I am suspecting that the screen lock is leaking memory or something. If I turn the lock on and off I can actually see some memory that was eaten up!

    I am going to upgrade to .109 when I get time and see if I notice the same thing.

    Geez, they should have designed an Ejector Button or a trigger on these things so we can fire the battery out a few times a day!

    That makes sense...voicemails can be big if people ramble on

    If your looking to bring up the free mem. I personally would use the normal lock with the call lock for phone calls.
    Don't forget they have quick pull for the device to keep from pulling the damn cover off

    I am using the original normal lock on the phone. But if it is locked all day and I don't use the phone I noticed some memory loss. Not sure if that is just a coincidence or what.

    I do know that the lock in verison .99 behaves differently than the one that was originally in version .75 though (when the phone was brand new). Because in version .75 if I pressed the SCREEN when locked it would come on with a window that said it was locked. Now in verison .99 the screen just stays black until I unlock it or press one of the keys at the bottom... pressing the screen has no effect. I like that better actually. But who knows if their updated lock routine has any memory leakage.
