    I downloaded the app on the appstore which shows info about your iphones RAM and allows you to free memory.
    Adding up all the memory comes to about 56MB. is this right? What about the other 72? :confused:

    At a guess, the other is reserved for the OS.

    Well it shows the "wired" memory which I assume is memory used by the OS :confused:

    You are correct. Wired memory is memory used by the OS that is untouchable by other applications.

    Reboot your phone by holding home + power until you see the apple logo, then check your memory it should clear up your free space.

    mine is:
    wired:28MB
    Active:17MB
    Inactive:6MB
    Free:40MB

    Your free memory is being used up by different apps, so when you hard reset you clear everything being used by the free memory which will show more free space.
