    Phone causes memory leak

    I've noticed that I get a memory leak after using the phone. I've had my phone sitting idle for 7 hours and have gotten 1mb of memory loss, then made a call for a minute and then I lose 10mb. Does this happen to anybody else, any suggestions? I'm using BBC v6/.132, it happened with v5 as well.

    Normally picking up the phone and using it will recover memory, but I too have noticed when using the phone it will lose memory. I just attribute that to the phone allocating memory in order to operate the phone software. When I am done with the phone, if I go online it usually recovers everything it lost.

    This is very common. Many apps/themes cause memory leaks. I wouldn't worry about it too much unless your phone starts acting weird, slow or getting the "spinning clock" a lot.
    Droooooiiiiiid!

    That's it. No longer using the phone feature
    That's funny. Don't even look at the phone Nikki just hide it somewhere and your memory will soar like never before

    I am coming out with a new product it's called the memory patch. You place it on your skin and voila all your concerns about memory will just melt away.

    I have QL, accelodex, meterberry, berry wars and google maps for apps and the titanium theme. I'm probably going to delete google maps to see if that helps.

    Usually I don't use the phone much but for some reason people have actually been calling me.

    I deleted it, I will see how my phone does over the next couple of days. I don't really use it that much anyways.

    If it still leaks terribly, uninstall all apps, wait a little and then install one, see if it leaks. If not install another and do it one by one till you catch it.
