    Because those people have either Shrunk their OS down so far down where only the necessary programs to boot are required. And as stated, certain apps are just worse on memory then others. I have a ton of apps (never shrink my OS) and I boot up with about 48mb. But I typically stay around 38-40mb once things stabilize.

    Also go into your media and make sure that default wallpapers/ringtones/etc were actually removed. I have had in the past removed them, yet, they still showed up and used memory. Other than that, I believe your memory is accurate based on number of apps that you have installed. Some cause more of a leak and some less, and if you want to keep them all, I would recommend a daily reboot.

    That's what I meant. Now do a battery pull and watch your memory grow

    Ok, did a battery pull and after rebooting I'm now seeing 30.9 still...

    And while I think I know the answer to this I'll ask any way for good measure: Does it have any bearing at all on available system memory how much data (pix, music, movies, etc.) I have on my 8GB card? I don't think it does but just had to ask...

    After clearing the event log I got it up to 31.0MB...

    So what more can I do to get a bootup closer to 48mb like you do?

    You would have to remove some of the programs you like using. But here is the thing, memory is a major misnomer that people pay way to much attention to. As long as your phone is running smooth I really wouldn't worry about. If you start seeing you phone lag and a lot spinning clocks that's another but typically that only happens when you get down to 5mb or less.

    I do see the spinning clock here and there but not all of the time. I tried removing the Zen Theme and that backfired in a big way, but I was able to get my phone back up and running quickly - I guess if I removed Docs2Go I'd reclaim quite a bit but for the time being I guess I've done all I can unless I decide to remove more apps. Thanks for all of the quick responses!
