    Lightbulb Help! Severe memory flux

    Ok ok thanks
    One more question:
    When I first installed the hidden theme (which is GREAT) I noticed that I had 37.7 meg (which is the highest I have seen in months)
    After rearranging the icons as I like them I still had 37.7meg.
    I know that you must quickpull once or twice after choosing a theme so I did and when everything came back I only had 31.4meg which is where its at for he last few quickpulls and about 20 minutes.

    Should I have lost memory after the quickpulls???
    Isn't that backwards?

    Thanks

    Not sure why it would have dropped like that. I don't pay much attention to app memory so it will be hard for me to determine why it happened. My advice would be to not worry too much about it. That's not a huge drop and 31mb is more than enough app memory anyway.

    Yeah but now its down to 26.6meg in 30 minutes.
    Thats a 11.1meg drop, and the phone is just sitting on my desk idle.

    Its not at a dangerously low level but who really wants to loose large chunks of memory within 30 minutes?

    Thanks

    n0m0n does this happen with every theme you tired? What 3rd party apps are you running?

    No and because Im running 151 b5v7 there aren't many themes to put on a storm.

    AS for 3rd party apps Switch Applications says WB, SMRTGuard, MSDict, are running int he background.
    But they ave been running in the background for months.

    MSDict is just there and doing nothing until I call on the dictionary.
    SMRTGuard isn't set to follow at this time, and WB its WeatherBug and it is set for 30 minute updates.
    The memory has gradually dropped over 30 minutes but not at 30 minutes.

    It really depends on how many apps and what apps you have. There are several that can cause a memory drain. How long have you had your Storm?

    Can you list what 3rd party apps and themes you have. We can help you determine the source of your memory leak.
