When I hold the menu key, the apps that come up are home, phone, browser, messaging, BBM and Windows Live Messenger. WLM is the only one that always comes up as I keep myself signed in at all time.
Looking at the CPU usage, if I just let the phone sit for a few seconds, it drops to 5% or less.
I'll leave the phone alone for the next few days. The phone has been fine since Saturday, and I'm already getting into the habit of clearing any old data that might be taking up space.

Hi. I've the same problem but worse. My bb 9800 application memory is as low as 0.0KB. It froze all day long. I tried the battery pull billions of times, deleted most of apps even the windows live messenger, yahoo messenger, facebook, deleted languages I don't use..but it only got my apps memory to 3MB. What's wrong???
Hi and Welcome to the Community!
Likely, nothing is wrong. Or you may have a memory leaking app. Or you may have so many apps and so much data that all of the AppMemory is being consumed. Here are some resources for you to check (hopefully this is not redundant to what is already posted above in this old thread):
It is always important to properly close applications when you are done with them. Using the Back or the Red key will not do this -- those leave it to the app to decide what to do...and some will leave themselves resident in memory, consuming resources on your BB, slowing the overall performance. Rather, to close an app, press and select "Close" or "Exit"...that will force the application to be closed, freeing up for your new use the resources it was consuming. Some apps will always remain running (typically -- BBMessenger, Browser, Homescreen, Phone, and Messages)...but, you should still close them properly - especially the Browser...if it is left on an active web page, it will not only consume extra resources but battery power as well.
Another thing to try:
Rather than removing from your OS, reload from scratch, but in this slow and careful manner...you may perhaps be able to narrow down the precise causal item:
When the behavior presents, you know the culprit...the last thing you loaded.
If the behavior does not re-present, then you know that either step 1 or 2 cured it.
If the behavior presents no matter what, then you likely have a hardware level issue for which no amount of OS or software can cure.

I gave up with my Torch 9800 because nothing helped it and bought a brand new Torch 9860.
However, this brand new bb that I just got 3 days ago is now experiencing the same thing. It starts to be very slow and I just checked the application memory...and voila! it's 0.0KB!!!!!!!!
What is happening???? It's a brand new phone and don't even install screen capture and stuff into it. It only has standard apps that came with it.
Could it be that I am hacked??? I have a really nosy boyfriend, could he be hacking into my bb?? how do I know if I am hacked??
The "Application Management" of my BB looks like this:
-System: 329.6 MB
-Applications: 30.0 MB
-Free: 408.3 MB
-System: 283.8 MB
-Applications: 72.8 MB
-Other: 68.6 MB*
-Free: 118.6 MB**
Well..that looks ok..however, the "Free**" was 0.0KB and the "Other*" was taking it all.
Man, this is confusing. What is this "Other"? And how do I know if I am being hacked?
Thank you soo soo much.
