I always seem to have my application memory lower thank 5mb, the highest its been was 6mb. I've seen that the app memory that comes with it is 126mb or something like that.
I live in Argentina, my carrier is called Movistar
Device Version: 3.2
OS Version = 188.8.131.527
I have Inserted a Media Card
Free App space: 1.6mb
Free Space in Device: 850mb
Free Space in Media Card: 1.7gb
Third Party Apps I have: Copter (242544bytes) Memory Booster (129632) Whatsapp (4858896) They are all Up to Date
And I also have Facebook (2840884) I have deleted all the games the BB comes with except BrickBreaker, and deleted the help app.
Things I casually do to increas AM:
Use this memory booster app
Clear the Event log
(I don't like to erase messages so I don't)
Check if anything that i'm not using is runing(holding menu button) and if something is, close it.
Question: How come if my bb comes with 126mb of app memory, and I reduced the use in my phone, why do I have 5mb of app memory? Is this normal in a Bold 9000? Is there a fix?

Application Memory -- This is the most crucial; it is the protected (not user accessible), dedicated, and fixed (in size) space that is available as the destination for the installation of the OS and all applications (plus some application storage, overhead and such). You cannot touch AppMemory. You cannot improve the maximum AppMemory that your BB has. It is what it is. Applications can only install here...there is no option.
Here are some guidelines to use:
With a limited amount of AppMemory, one must find the combination of OS, OS options, add-on apps, and AppMemory stored data to keep on their BB that best matches their needs and usage patterns. You cannot alter the amount of AppMemory on your BB...all you can do is slim down as much as possible things that you don't use (e.g., languages, games, etc.) and try to manage within that total as best you can.

Well, if all you do is backup and restore, nothing will change...since you will simply replace your existing data on top of itself. You need to include an OS reload process as well.
As for if anyone "should" backup...I have this philosophy:
Regular backups are, quite simply, not optional...especially for those who have already migrated from the latter to the former.
