I don't want to give up on it, I was thinking if it's as slow as it is then maybe I got a bad one or something. Plus I'm learning that I need to get some sort of screen cover for it because it gets grime on it real fast and I spend as much time wiping the screen off as I do using the phone. I don't want to turn it in without seeing it live up to its full potential, but I figure if I'm going to, I have about a week before I have to start paying penalties.
And believe me, as long as there's something I can learn, I have no qualms about reading a novel, so feel free to bring out your inner Tolstoy and help me get this thing smokin fast
umm more info please! i'm using bboc's 7.1.4 with a bunch of apps installed and can only manage 29mb on a fresh boot.

I have the same OS as you, and it runs between 35 and 45 mb free.
Believe it or not some run their phone fine in the teens and single digits. Sometimes it is just a number
figures lol. i pulled the battery this morning and had about 29mb free after boot up. right now, it's showing 26mb free but i didn't use it all too much today. lowest i've seen it go is 20mb so i'm not too worried.
right now these are the apps i have installed:

I agree with Neo,
All new users do too much memory watching. When I got my storm (my first blackberry) I was feaked out if my memory dropped below 40. I thought the phone would run poorly, like a PC when it runs out of virtual memory. Then I did not reset my phone for a few days and checked my memory and noticed I only had 5mbs of memory. I did not perform a reset because the device was still running smoothly. I went another three days before resetting it, (I uninstalled a program). So what I have learned with the blackberries is this...memory is like age, (It ain't nothin but a number). You should not be concerned unless you phone behaves poorly.
Right now if I reset I have 49.2 mb.
But I run about 40 - 42 after many days of usage.
Now I don't even worry about it, you will drive yourself cazy :aargh4: :aargh4: :aargh4:
i have had my memory read as low as .2 or 0 not sure which one but it still was kicking....welcome to bbos and the blackberry family
you can also clear the logs: show keyboard>press and hold the alt key until it locks and then press "/"/
