    I got a 'low memory' message requesting I reboot my phone

    Just curious, how much RAM does the iphones have?

    thanks,

    This reminds me:

    I almost wish that Apple had included GC for it. I know, I know... GC incurs a performance hit -- but for a phone, I care more about reliability and stability than I do performance, and memory leaks harm the first two tremendously...

    128m? not enough for me.

    when i run some photography apps with rich media content, the apps crashed accidentally becoz of memory issue. maybe i desire too much on the small gadget..... it's just a phone

    128mb is better then most phones on the market... mobile phones don't need that much ram.

    wtf are you running all at once that requires the remaining 76mb of free ram after the OS/VRAM have had their share?

    you're just assuming that your apps are crashing because of low memory.

    Agreed. When/ if any of my apps ever crash a reinstall sorts it. Why would anyone release an app for the iPhone if it needed more ram than the phone has. That would just be idiotic.

    1) How do you know it's due to memory exhaustion?

    2) How do you know the apps aren't leaky?
