    Memory - A tale of two Storms

    Advertisement



    So my wife and I both picked up storms last week. They are set up identical, all the same apps and everything.

    I cleaned out both mailboxes, made sure all apps were closed, etc. In this condition hers runs around 34mb of free mem, with mine running about 29.

    There is two key differences between our two storms. She has one mailbox pushed, and I have two. And, I holster mine (oem with magnet) and she doesn't. Now 29 is by no means bad, but could one mailbox alone (even though they are both empty) make this 5MB difference in free mem on a regular basis? Or is the storms magnet sleeper function suspect?

    It could be the various service books associated with the second email are taking up that extra space. I don't how large service books are but you can see the differences by going to options > advanced options > service book.

    I don't think service books themselves could add up to 5 megs though... I'm bunning 10 accounts on my bb... If service books averaged 5mb per acct, that'd be 50mb right there...

    Even after a softpull, she starts with 43, I start with 39.9. It's gotta be the extra books.
