    Hello,

    how much memory does the 3gs have? The reason I ask is ever since installing sbsettings on my 3.0 3g whenever I get below 10mb of free memory, which is all the time, the phone really starts to bog down.

    Is this as much of a concern on the 3gs?

    Thanks.

    Very Good Question, I always wanted to Ask this (before i bought the 3GS) and never did.

    I dont know why SBSettings always displays more Free memory than other memory apps like memory status.

    Not sure where everyone is getting their information from, but here's my Cydia Sources info:

    They're talking about the RAM, not the overall storage capacity :)

    Thanks, and where would I search for those numbers? :confused: Would I just install the SBSettings from Cydia?

    yes, install SBSettings from cydia, then open it (swipe across the status bar of the iPhone) and it will open a window with different toggles (VERY VERY USEFULL!) and it will also say some info (memory, your wifi ip address, and a few stuff!)

    :cool::apple:

    I love SBSettings(Glass Orb theme is my fave). One of the few truly essential reasons to jailbreak(my other ones are Backgrounder and Categories).

    RAM is really big different on 3G and 3GS...

    I was amazed at how much free ram I have with the 3GS over the 3G. I frequently have between 70 - 90meg free with the 3GS. the mobile version of Logmein always complained ram shortages with my 3G, never with the 3GS :D
