    There are a few apps around that claim to monitor and make performance enhancements, but nothing I'd be willing to recommend anyone spend money on.

    You can always do Ctrl + Alt + H and see how much memory you have.

    Something else you can do is free up memory by deleting unused applications, themes, etc. These all take up space, and though many are small, they add up quickly.

    There is also a Memory Cleaner.

    That is already included with your BB.

    Go to:
    1. Options
    2. Security
    3. Memory Cleaning

    Then there are different settings, clean when holstered, clean when idle, idle timeout, Show Icon on homescreen.

    Set those to your liking and you should be just fine.

    Why can't they make this option available without having security on. I have no use nor need for security as this is a personal device on BIS with no information on it that isn't easily accesible to anyone with basic internet service and a phonebook (nothing worth protecting).

    My device is personal also...why not have security? Better to keep your info safe than to not.

    Thanks Red!

    This would be great, but I do not see any Memory Cleaning option.

    I have an 8820, maybe that's why?

    I enabled Content Compression and rebooted (Alt-Cap-Del), still nothing.

    Strange, it appeared minutes after I posted...
    Weird.

    Re: Are there any apps that monitor memory?

    I would but 3 reasons: 1) I hate having log in each time I get mail (or am I wrong and you don't have to to navigate the inbox?), 2) Have to personal info on there to steal, just the usual that can be gotten through a basic internet search and a phonebook, and 3) I have 2 girls, one 5 and one 6, and I have no home phone. It was hard enough to get the concept across about dialing in an emergency and the whole send button being needed as at school they just teach 911 and not 911 send. (The wife has the same device so they only have to learn the sequence once and it applies to both the same). I would hate for them to have to call for help for some reason and have to get by the password in order to complete the call (Once again maybe I am wrong on how that works, but never tried it as I didn't want to take the chance of them having problems).

    On the plus side, I have started a whole new generation of "Crackberry" addicts. They will come into the room and notify me that my phone is ringing (whether it is ringing or the email notification is going off).

    What OS are you running? Maybe it's not available on yours?

    1. you can have it set to lock after a certain amount of time Up to an Hour.

    2. to each their own

    3. If locked you still can dial 911. Might even be easier...

    • IF any button is pushed it will bring up a screen with 3 options.
    • A)Unlock B)Emergency Call C)Cancel
    • Click Emergency and then click Yes to comfirm.
    Not sure if kids would understand or not. Just an option though.

    Re: Are there any apps that monitor memory?

    With the lock after time option, can you still set it to clean the memory upon holstering, or does it then refer to the same time setting that was entered for the locK??

    I appreciate the help and would love to put this into effect, I am just too afraid with the kids, as they are really just starting to read and they don't always get it right (especially the youngest), but they are coming along, and the fact that a few years ago the wife had a device that a long press of the 9 key dialed 911. Needless to say after a couple of times of the kids getting ahold of her phone, the 911 operator asked to make sure the device was locked after using.

    Yes, you can set it to clean when the BB is holstered.
