    Yes they do!

    I've always been a fan of SureType. What has hardly (if ever) been mentioned is that each time RIM releases a new BB model with SureType, they make improvements to the SureType software as well. Therefore we are on the third generation of SureType. I've had them all and find the latest version to be the first quantum leap in ease of use and additional features. It precisely why I am so very impressed with the newest 81xx series.

    Archer, can I join you for that lunch? I also said the Bold was not sexy enough. My 8 gb card is working very well, no worries. Poor 8320, I haven't used it since I got my 8120. I really do type faster and easier on the 8120.

    I think the the BOLD is very aesthetically pleasing. It definitely looks better in appearance than the iphone does (IMO).

    By all means, do join me. It will be quite fun!

    Yes, what can I say, SureType really grew on me, that's for sure. Plus the balance of the phone is such that it's very nice to use it one handed. I'm pretty good at typing with one thumb....

    I found that deleting the apps you don't need really helps. Other than that I love mine too. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    For clarification. The memory card & the internal memory are confined to different areas. Therefore what is stored on the MicroSD card will not reduce the load on the internal memory which is what the device relies on.

    My 8120 is & has been running well, with no memory issues. However I keep the number of extra applications to a minimum. Another example a computer. You can only have as many applications open as your memory will allow. Also as you close running apps not all the memory is returned. However once you do a restart or shut down the the full memory does return. Thus you should be sure to close each app that you are not currently using. Also you should monitor the memory on a regular basis, followed by shutting it down via the power button. Once turned off, pull the battery for 30 seconds, the put it back in & you will have a fresh start. If you do a search of the forum there is more valuable tips available to you.

    The only thing better than an 8120, is TWO 8120's. Having a spare never hurts...

    What you say is correct. That is why theoretically if i had pictures stored and or ringtones on the device memory then transfering those to a micro sd card would translate to free'd space on the device. I have only the 5 applications opend that are defaultly opened. I hate to reboot and so you dont have to pull the batter a small application has been designed

    any ways yea i dont use it out of the ordinary only opening up viigo every 2 hrs or so and light browsing at work so from 20mb to 12 is a problem

    although i must say sometimes it will randomly jump back up like a purge

    ie, i had content compression enabled, i disabled it and re-enabled it and my free jumped to 14mb

    wierd!

    Oh yeah I'm loving it. I was having memory issues until I deleted some apps and I think mainly closing out apps correctly did the trick.

    Now that I've heard more about your usage, I believe you are doing all the right things.

    Setting aside the BlackBerry for just a moment , I will share some aspects of ram memory behavior that often either go overlooked or in some cases people do not know about.

    I would like to use a desktop or laptop computer as an example since they also use ram memory. If one has several apps open, say Firefox, Word, Outlook & Adobe Reader. Now you launch the task manager, click on the performance tab. You will see that even as you sit there doing nothing other that watching the readouts in graph form the CPU line is moving higher and lower as it moves across the field. Then you look at the page file usage (ram) and it too moves. So the point is the amount of ram available is fluid & there must be enough to allow for spikes where it peaks. Since prior to the Bold the newest devices are capable of doing more than prior generations & yet they still only have 64MB, the memory is taxed more than ever. Thus we must be more vigilant to manage it. Also one needs to consider that the so called "memory leak problem" is many times blown up to be bigger than it is, by those people who are negative & quick to blame the device. The same types that are victims & complain about many other things as well.

    Those who choose to learn about the device, invest in their own education, are the ones that get maximum enjoyment out of what I find to be a world class product.

    Remember to clear your cache and do alt lglg from the home page to clear your log. Also you can do hold alt and the escape key to see what apps are running and close them.
