well i did wipe my phone when i installed .148 and before i put any apps on it it was at 38mb (i have never ben above 42mb sence i got the phone in march) and i do understand what you guys are saying but my phone works just fine i dont get random reboots at all just that one reboot message after i install a new os or restore contacts so since thats a lot of work to wipe and reinstall until my phone is giving me some serious problems i will wait it out and thankyou all for being so helpfull to me and apuntsel he did have the orignal question

Thanks BBC ... I sent a message to our BES admin to check on the IT policy push. Under phone the connections and interactions were custom so I changed those and CaptureIt was in compatbility mode, so I changed that as well ... let me see how it goes.

Let's see, hmmm if read what you are say correctly
You didn't take the rest of the stuff on
Your phone into consideration. You have themes
Everything that comes with service books, every.
Icon whether its a dummie or not. Did you go
Through and remove the extra files witha third
Party app that you can't get with shrink.
All this stuff takes up space and maybe
If we sat down and went through every single thing
On the storm (which Ill be doing now cause its drivin me nuts to know)
And added it all up we might have a better
Explanation for you. I am going to say it again...
If it works for you and your not having any problems than I want
Your phone. Wanna trade? Myself and jn have
Never seen this before and we've been playin with them from the
Beginning. How about this: maybe your standards
Aren't as high as ours in reference to how the
Storm runs or should run.
well i can answer a few of your questions. i have one theme.it's 182kb...no i don't want to trade...i have very high standards...and i have been playing with this same phone since 8 am on 11/23/2008.the icons and things you mentioned are no more than a few kb's...they don't add up.

IF I load my os lets say i have .151/v6 for instance with NO 3rd party apps I am starting with right about 52MB with that list of apps I have which is about half of yours, I drop to 42-44MB, maintain a steady 34+ all day everyday. you are saying with that list of app( i am assuming you left docs to go on your phone) Is that you are booting with the same amount of memory and you have twice the apps (if not a lil more) somethign doesnt add up correctly unless you are removing everything from your phone. And in that case you could possibly be seeing the numbers you are. and that 128MB of app memory is where the Operating system, apps, themes, games, everythign pretty much is stored, so figure your average shrunk os is loaded, about 65+MB that drops you to 63MB, now add in all the processes running and go head and say that kills another 10MB now your at 53MB, then recieve your service books, email boxes, messages stored on the phone, phonebook, talking around 8MB makes you at 45MB, then all your apps. Either you have 1. no contacts stored or messages, no docs, to go. (meaning you have shrunk everything or used the remove all button) no service books, or 2. you are getting a false reading. I am assuming again that its number 2, as you have said you are having no troubles with your storm.
