    Ooening up the desktop manager. Connecting to my BB. Clicking on backup/restore. Then clicking on the appropriate backup file then let it do its thing.

    If this hasn't been mentioned, bbm 5 takes up 2 mb's, much more than the installed version. I took it off of my 8120. The bbm upgrade is geared more towards the new generation bb's that have a lot more on board memory.

    I have a 8130, been through a lot of OS's. Best one I've found for this one is the .127 from AllTel. Very minimal leaks and very stable. Just a thought.

    The things that are missing are my BBM contacts, passwork keeper w/all passwords, notepad with stored info. That's all I can remember right now. I reinstalled .138 and have some memory leak, but no where near what I had with .160.

    Also, not sure what version of facebook you are using, but it takes up A LOT of memory. Plus you need to make sure on the options menu that you have the check for updates box unchecked. If you have that set to check for updates, every so many minutes it checks, so it is working in the background taking up memory. Another thing that may have already been mentioned somewhere on here, make sure when you close out a program or close the browser, etc, don't just hit the escape key. Actually use the menu button and scroll down and click close. It doesn't save that much memory, but it will keep it from draining as fast.
