Memory Issues on Bold

I'm running OS 4.6.190 (Platform 4.0.0172) on the AT&T Network, BIS, my memory usually is in the mid 20MB but does drop to 10MB, unless I do a soft reset. Is this normal, how much Application Memory Free Space is an acceptable amount?

What can I do to increases my memory

Re: Memory Issues on Bold

I recommend keeping your File Free above ~15mb.


To clear more space, move any images, pictures, files, music and other media to your Media Card.


You can delete themes you don't need, details below.


Also, do a true battery pull reboot now and then, it will clear more memory than a key press soft reset.
