    Now at 35.4mb...all I've done is read emails and on the email side, click on "reconcile now" to synch my outlook w. the berry (could that drain the memory?).:dunno:

    Also, one other symptom...I keep noticing that the phone goes from 25-30% battery down to 15-18% later in the day...typically in one move. Could that have anything to do w. the memory?

    Thanks.

    well everything you do is going to use memory its going to bounce around all day by stable it should stay within 8MB of start....what do you mean by the batt percentage like how much is left?

    I'm going to leave all apps closed during the day and will report findings...hopefully it doesn't just keep dropping.

    As far as battery, right now I'm at 84% remaining...it'll probably be 65-70% by 4pm assuming I do nothing but read emails. Yesterday, I started using ubertwitter and several finance-oriented programs (wall street journal...street.com) and within 2hrs, it was down to 40% (I wasn't using it constantly, but those programs were running), then at about 8pm, it dropped from 30% to 20% in one move, then down to 15%...it was like something just started consuming the battery. It was very odd.

    About the only thing I've done to tweak the phone this week is adding hybrid v4 and I've read that this improves battery life.

    I'll report any big changes I see.

    Thanks again for the input.

    When it gets lower it drops a lil quicker remember that there is alot to run on these...
    who is ur service provider?
    if its vzw or you run on a CDMA network
    go into manage connections>mobile network options > change global to 1XEV if you dont travel global its a waste of battery and it does make a huge difference in batt comsumption

    Verizon. Holy crap, I just realized that after upgrading my OS (last week), then adding hybrid v4, my network option had defaulted back to GLOBAL (I'd done the 1XEV before the OS update). Switched it back to 1XEV now...thanks a bunch for pointing that out.:arms:

    Wasn't there another option having to do w. the memory saver that needs to be disabled...seems like I saw someone mention that on another thread?

    Also, do you need the Email Setup Application if you're running a BES? I ran shrink-a-os after the OS upgrade but left that b/c I wasn't sure if it was needed...just noticed it in my application list.

    I wouldnt worry about the memory drop to much unless it drains below 12mb or so daily, then you may want to start deleting apps and try and figure which one is the cause, with weatherbug make sure you set the location manually and set it to update every 2 or 4 hours, I got rid of it but will be putting it back on i just dont like any of the other free weather apps. I can start the day at about 38.5 and lose about 8 mb in the first 3 hours or so on 142 it has not gone below 20 in the last 24 hours. if its draining much more than that you may want to see what app is kicking on and maybe doing random updates the drop is coming from somewhere, plus you shouldnt have any function issues as in clock rotating more and lag time to open apps untill it gets in the mid teens or lower. I make sure and do a quick pull daily.
