freeing up memory
I have about 28mb free mem on my storm - that seems low but who knows. Is it low? if so, how can i free up memory and what should I have?
afaik, 28mb is plenty. people are constantly on a quest to free memory thinking it will make the device profoundly better. while thats true for someone who may have just 5mb free, 28mb free is not going to see much improvement. there are some simple things you can do to free up memory though... fully exit/close programs when you are not using them, empty the event logs regularly, do a battery pull every couple of days, etc. also, there are many threads on the forum with information on how to get more of your memory free.

I have the following apps and im at about 14. does this sound right?
vzw visual vm
add to cal
sounds pretty close to being correct... by the way, you dont really need the launcher if you just bookmark blackberryforums.pinstack.com/f223/ i find that much easier! To tell if this number is close to being correct, do a bat pull and if your memory is ~25mb or maybe ~30mb, then 14 is around the right number, if not there could be a memory leak, but unless your performance starts suffering, dont sweat it!

What does "pull the battery" exactly mean?
Take the battery out and put it back in again.
