Default Re: please help me 9700 memory so low

When I upgraded from OS5 to OS6, I couldn't install a lot of my apps. Now, I only have a few apps and have to reboot my Blackberry Bold 9700 almost on a daily basis since after a reboot, I have about 12 MB but when prompted to reboot (after using m Blackberry for 1 day), I have around 2 MB.

When performing an upgrade of an app in Blackberry App World, I always get a message saying that I have less than a certain amount of memory and whether I still want to perform the upgrade to the app.

Unless a person doesn't want to install a lot of apps (i.e. more than ~7), I don't recommend upgrading a Bold 9700 from OS 5 to OS 6.
