    Can someone tell me why my available memory goes up dramatically after I do a battery pull?
    How often should I do a battery pull?
    Thanks

    Battery pull closes all running programs so when the phone comes back up it will have more memory then prior to the pull. I usually pull the battery weekly. As far as the dramatically part it is reported/theorized/complained about, however you want to put it that there is a memory leak with the BB devices. I have no idea if it is true b/c i am not seeing it on my phone, but other people have reported losing 12 MB prior to a battery pull. Here is one such thread. Hope it helps and clearifies.

    Yes there is a memory leak with the 8830, and it is quite annoying. If you don't remember to do it, and you run out of memory your BBerry will exhibit symptons such as lost call logs, that will remind you quickly to do the battery pull. Kane is right hopefully a fix will be out for it soon. I do a pull once a week.
