    Memory Leak Issues

    More data on my mem loss.....

    Took off VZ Nav (don't use it) and removed Talklock. pulled the batt. Last night turned the phone off and charged it (as usual) and this morning, mem levels at 0.0.

    I was running the Ascarii 2.0 theme. I have turned that off as well now, back to the default theme.

    Any further ideas? I check fairly regularly to make sure no extra apps are running.

    Is that from the whole day? if yes then you should be in good shape.
    If no, then my opinion is if it dropped that much in a few hours it could still be ok depending on your usage. those three apps could have drained it. were they running constantly in the background?

    I Believe Ascarii is a drainer. How long has it been off? That could have been the issue.
    Try to repeat the problem now that you have it off the device. Let us know your findings

    Good habit to keep your unused programs closed like you said.

    OK, He's my .02. I have pretty much had every Leaked OS. prior .109(.83-.106) on my phone, including all three of Sith_Apprentice's Hybrids as well as BBCrackman's first hybrid 103/106 (yes, he was making hybrids before .114. lol) I am now currently now running .114Hybridv2. My conclusion is this app memory problem lies in the .sfi file in the OS files. I have had pretty much the same "core" apps through all of these OS's (WB, Aerize Alerts, Buzz Me, Capture IT, Talklock, Youmail, and a few Web launchers), and what I found was they all "leak" memory, except .90. But .90 .sfi was/is so unstable that the memory benefit is not worth the added problems. It has been said that this "leak off" of memory has no ill effects/losses on the storm. Unlike prior Blackberry's that, when reaching very low app memory, would start deleting emails and contacts. My opinion is that if you find a stable OS that has a fast browser and smooth navigation throughout the phone, the "leak" problem shouldn't be a deciding factor.

    No they were not running all day, I try to close all Apps after using.

    TalkLock

    I am running 114 v2 ...BBCrackman suggested removing "TalkLock" as it seems to be a memory drain. On the V2 Hybrid is the "Mute" button disabled on the phone while you are talking? That is the only reason I have TalkLock installed because the mute is a pain...people think they have dropped your call because they can no longer hear you.
