    Yep I'm with Eddie on this one. Its tough to get close to 45 without some serious ALX modding. I dumped all the preloaded junk, PTT, and before I started loading 3rd party apps I was somewhere in the 28-30 range. Now I'm running 22-24. Works like a champ.

    Looks like I'm gonna have to do some more modding to the alx file. I'm not satisfied with the space I have. I want in the high 30 - 40MB's. But the modding of the alx file is such a hit or mix thing, you can easily screw up your Pearl. I got lucky when I did my first rounds of modding but I love playing with it and getting the results Ive been getting (see the sig).

    Just make sure that you save qa copy of the alx in notepad prior to modding. That way if something goes wrong and you brick the phone you can paste it back in and rerun app loader and all will be ok.

    That does not seem right unless you were completely out of space to begin with. Try following this thread and it should help you on your way.

    Deleted languages (except English/English UK for voicedialing "training"), sample video. Have about eight 3rd party apps. Free = 29mb. Used to go down to about 17mb but for some reason now only goes down to 22mb and stays there. I don't know why, I didn't do anything to the phone.

    Re: How much internal memory do you have available on your Pearl?

    Flashed firmware to:
    PL 2.3.0.85
    A 4.2.1.108

    Removed, Voice Dialing, password reminder and some other unusefull apps which I never use. Some themes. installed 10 apps. (opera mini, viigo, gmail, xplayer, jivetalk, my alarm, midpSSH, mini monitor, Blackberry diagnostic, soft reset).
    All pre-installed pictures, and ringtones is still there. Removed ofcourse unwanted languages

    37MB free.
    Could break the 40mb barrier by deleting preloaded pics. But thers one BG which I like

    When you pull the battery 2 things happen.
    1) all running programs close (even the ones you do not see behind the scenes like the alarm clock)

    2) any program memory used up by operating the phone gets freed up. Memory changes often do not reflect til after a soft reset ie pulling the battery.

    Hope it helps clarify. Welcome to the Stacks.

    Re: How much internal memory do you have available on your Pearl?

    I have anywhere from 12 to 0 free MBss... Sometimes i look at status and it says 0 so guess what I do?

    that's right! I pull that battery out! I lose all my recent emails and call logs, but the way I look at it is that even if I left it in i'd lose them anyway because of the memory leak issue...

    I miss having WM5 and being able to install larger apps on my memory card, i always had at least 32 mb free (out of 64 internal ) because of being able to install on the memory card...

    I just try to remember on my 8130 that I can press ALT+the back button and get the 'task manager/alt+tab' and close programs I have open...

    I have tons of Java apps, themes, and games installed, so of course i have less memory than i'd like!!!

    Best,

    Wegmans!

    How do you check to see what applications are still running?
