    Have any of you guys checked your diagnostic logs under
    Settings -- - about--- diagnostic and usage data --- diagnostics and usage data ..???

    I can pretty much guarantee you will have lots of entries in there for "low memory" ?

    Maybe this is linked to the battery drain we are all seeing. Something running in the background causing it to eat up all the memory.

    Have a look and let me know ...

    Good find. I have logging turned off (EDIT: woops, I just have the "automatically send to apple" turned off; I have no logs otherwise) on my phone currently but intend to turn it back on for this experiment.

    Can you tell specifically what is complaining of low memory errors?

    Also I just had an epiphany: anyone with the iPhone Configuration Utility happen to take a peek at the console to see if there's anything... abnormal?

    No probs. I have many entries every day for low memory every day since I took it out the box last Friday.

    Facebook app is destroying our batteries. Haha ;)

    This is totally normal. Apps will receive low memory warnings regularly - it is a signal to purge unused resources. This is by design. (App developer here)

    I do not think this indicates a problem.

    As the previous poster said, it is just the OS being signaled to purge previously opened programs.

    Got a ton here. Guess they should've given it a gig. My battery life seems a little better than my 4's though (this one's meter on this seems to follow a more linear scale though. It'll last a while at the low percentage points while my 4 was as good as dead at 10%)

    LowMemory logs are nothing new

    The LowMemory* logs have been there for ages (before iOS 5) on your PC/Mac (see http://developer.apple.com/library/ios/#technotes/tn2151/_index.html under Acquiring Crash Reports). iOS seems to mostly keep free physical RAM very low... maybe too low.

    I created a shortcut long ago pointing to the above dir on my PC because I'm curious about the logs and I usually sync w/my PC daily or more.
