Low Memory problems on Bold despite 1GB builtin memory!

I still have no solution for the low memory issues of the Bold. We should be able to allocate much more than the 128MB default to the applications and data space! And the OS should behave better. Right now, I start with about 18MB, and every day or two I need to reboot.

 

Help with a fix or if not with a strong request to RIM to fix this is the next OS release!

 

Thanks

4.6.0.167 from AT&T. Do you know of a version that lets you allocate the memory in a more useful way?

Same here.

I have BOLD 9000. i just buy last two weeks here in Indonesia.

I'm using the local operator.

the application memory starts with 24.8Mb then it drops to 14 to 17Mb.

 

still no fix?

Hi AlanG,

 

I think the problem here is your assumptions..

 

A Blackberry is not like a Windows PC.

It DOESNT need memory as much as the Windows PC does and should not require that much memory.

 

So you have an issue with the memory on the devcie.

NB: the BB can NEVER have 1GB of memory - you may have inserted a 1GB SD card but that is not device memory.

 

Do you use the Browser?

Do you use third party apps?

  You think wrong... I did not make any assumptions. Just stated facts.

 

A Blackberry is not like a Windows PC.

   Thank God... But it is getting closer everyday. Just look at boot time...

It DOESNT need memory as much as the Windows PC does and should not require that much memory.

  Not as much as Windows, you are correct: Windows Vista needs now 2GB of RAM and 50+ GB of storage,

  But the BB Bold and after would be a lot better with more RAM, better RAM management and storage management.

 

So you have an issue with the memory on the devcie.

  Correct.

NB: the BB can NEVER have 1GB of memory - you may have inserted a 1GB SD card but that is not device memory.

  No, the Bold 9000 comes with 1GB from factory and was advertized and sold as such by ATT.

  It does ALSO have a microSD card, and I have one of 16GB for my storage (mucic, pictures, videos,..).

 

Do you use the Browser?

  Yes, for sure!!! What a question? Who does not? We are in 2009, and the competition is the I-Phone.

Do you use third party apps?

   Yes, for sure also. Why do you think RIM created the AppStore?
