    OK, another noobie question from me.

    I have searched to find out how to check what I have available or am using for system memory. I can't seem to find a menu on the phone that does it. I plan on installing a task manager, would that app show me what my system resources are?

    My SD card and phone storage shows;

    Total space 1.84 GB
    Available space 1.79 GB

    Internal space
    Available space 121 MB

    But this is NOT what I'm looking for. The apps that remain in the background are using system memory and I want to know THAT.

    Could some one please explain how I would go about finding this information?

    Thanks

    Unless you root your phone you won't see all info.

    But, the android is linux based so "free" memory doesn't mean your phone is low on memory or slow. (due to memory management in the linux kernel)

    What you can see on your phone is:
    Settings > Applications > Running Services

    You should hold your phone horizontally, that way you can read the complete bottom line. Now to get this explained, that's a different question :)


    cheers

    Well after reading about hoe Android uses memory (ram) and how the task manager works, I've installed Watchdog. It monitors CPU activity and alerts me as to what apps are hogs. I can choose to kill it myself or to auto kill it in settings. I'll see how that goes. So far I've no complaints about how the phone is working. Beats my BB Storm!
