I'm going to create a new thread entitled "RAM-constrained phone" or some such. We're always seeing problems when RAM gets around 70MB. I have to use Superbox's "Free Memory" button all too often to free memory (RAM), because the freeable memory that is supposed to be freed up when needed, never seems to get freed up before I see problems.
You're definitely on to something. I use a home screen app called "GO Launcher EX" which has a feature that shows available memory when you access the app drawer and select "Running" apps. My availalble memory hovered around 100mb routinely until I deleted several widgets that I had which used considerable memory just being there. (CBS News, CNN News, SI, YouTube, a couple of e-mail widgets and some others.) I found that I really didn't need the widgets and replaced them with shortcuts that don't have any memory use, but launch the apps just as well. Now, the free memory shows 144mb routinely and the phone functions considerably better. I didn't realize widgets had so much memory use and perhaps individually they don't. But, add together several screens full of them and they add up. I also reduced the number of home screens since I now only show shortcuts. I still run widgets for a weather app and music player, but otherwise I'm fine now. - MarkC
