    Ok so I wiped and flashed fresh 2.1.2 and initiaagly it gave me about 90mb free after a clean and fresh install. after i installed all my apps i still had about 70mb left. but during the past few days I've noticed the internal memory slowly decreasing or leaking eventhough I haven't downloaded anything new...I've lost about 10mb by doing absolutely nothing...what the hell is going on?

    Excuse any spelling errors as we all know how this phone loves to make up its own words

    get cachemate from the market. even the free version does a good job of clearing up space. For instance, even with LIGHT usage from yesterday to today, I was able to clear 2mb of space.

    When you use some apps like a web browser, cache is stored to help things run faster. This takes up space. You can clear chache using the app manager or look in the app settings or use a cache clearing app.

    glad you figured that out.
    i started using cachecleaner which seems to work well for me.

    I use Advanced Task Killer all the time, pretty much any time I pick up the phone.
    When the phone has been running for a long time the memory it releases gradually decreases. There is a memory leak, but where?
    Only reboot gets all the memory back.
