    I don't think alt+backspace help you "close" any application that you are using other than "switching" to another application and keep the previous application running in the background. Some of the applications do use backspace to close themself out and some don't. To do multitasking, you can always use the red end key to return to desktop and launch new program from there.

    The Application Switcher on the BlackBerry smartphone is setting itself as a system listener and is not being removed.
    Got the 2nd reason - don't even know what this means. What's a "system listener" and what does it do (besides drain memory?) Is the only way to "remove" it a BB reset? Thanks to anyone in advance for an explanation.

    I just learned today from my BlackBerry rep that their is an easy way to clear your vitual memory by pressing the alt+lglg then this will pop a window then press menu and clear all. This should speed up your device. Hope this help.(I tested it on the Pearl,World and the Curve)

    Cheers

    That clears your "event log." You can also clear cache memory by browser: options: cache operations and clearing content cache.

    I'm not sure that either of those has anything to do with memory leaks.

    I would like to point out that the BTSC article states

    Environment: BlackBerry® Device Software 4.2.2

    http://www.blackberry.com/btsc/dynam...C&kcId=KB13814

    This is one of the major hurdles that BB just can't seem to get over. Happens with my 4.3 OS. I make sure to close all my programs when possible. How does 4.5 OS handle the memory leak issue?

    I haven't seen any memory leaks, I've had almost all 4.5 versions out for my 8320, the .10 was bad, but I'm on .46 now and works like a champ, no memory leaks as of yet......

    listener means it's doing just that..."listening" for a change/value/switch etc. Equivalent to the horrible, horrible task manager app in Winmobile. Basically it's sitting there "listening" and draining your battery even when it's not needed/wanted.

    I have seen this problem first hand on the 8830 with 4.2.2.66 when first launched in May 07. I worked with RIM support and was able to duplicate it repeatedly. However, newer versions of the OS, do not seem to be as affected by the Application Switcher in my testing. Although the 8830 still has Memory leak issues..

    The Curve 8330 has been much more stable, as a result of the extra memory (96mb). Device has never dropped below 19 mb and that is based on heavy usage. Very happy with device so far.

    I have been told by many people that Memory Management has been improved in 4.5 handheld code, and should resolve the issue seen so often on the 8830.

    Got it - thanks Dayne...like when you don't have a signal and your phone is constantly looking for one (unless you turn it or the "radio" off) draining your battery FAST.

    Come on RIM get this memory leak resolved. Iphone users don't need to do battery pulls. And with all the apps available lately for the iphone it becomes more and more tempting. We bb users wants to stay loyal.
