    To lower ram usage is easy. You can not be jailbroken, but some steps require your phone to be jailbroken.

    1. Delete apps that you don't use. After I delete an app I would just download it again. It's free and you can do it a million times. The less apps the better.

    2. No spotlight search. It will make your phone not search for everything in spotlight search. Lowers the usage of your iPhone making it faster.

    3. Clear website cache. Delete your cookies and data on your phone. Most guys know how to do this. You can also go in advance and delete all of that data there too.

    4. Less Notification. Go into notifications and delete them on apps you don't want. You don't want to be notificated all the time would you? Just delete them.

    5. Turn off Location services. This doesn't mean turn it off completely. It's better if you turn off the ones you don't need. Like you don't need location services for Battery free would you?

    6. Brightness. Lower down your brightness. You don't need it even half way. Have it 1/10 of the way. You save a lot more battery and you aren't causing so much usage.

    Jailbroken part.

    1. Delete Launch Daemons. You don't need a lot of them. Search up a guide on how to remove Launch Daemons on iFile. Some are very important so use at your own safety!

    2. Delete your tweaks you don't use. Delete those unused tweaks. It's causing a lot of storage to be wasted.

    3. Don't download stuff like Spire, Siriport, and other 100mb+ tweaks if your phone has a lot of tweaks. It could cause your AppStore apps to crash.

    4. Delete Winterboard. It takes up a lot of storage and everything. Causes your phone to be hell a lot slower. Expect ally when using a theme that has everything on it. Be safe and don't use it.

    Your first step is wrong as are others.

    So, who are you to be writing guides on MacRumors???

    Deleting apps lower the usage. They will delete in multitasking+they don't cause much space. Launch Daemons?? Those lower ram usage. An easier way to do this is get the Process add on Sbssettings and use it. You'll see it do most of this except delete apps. Same with airplane mode. It would do most of the stuff I said

    You're getting RAM, storage, and battery confused. Stop posting crap.

    Buy a bigger gb iPhone in the first place.

    if your gonna worry about this then i would suggest you buy a dumb down phone.

    Everyone does the minor tweaks to conserve a little battery juice but if i felt the need to go disabling so much then I'm not gonna enjoy my iPhone experience !

    As for jail breaking you aint got a clue dude......... :rolleyes:

    Disabling spotlight has been reported to increase the responsiveness of 3gs iPhones and conserve a little battery juice.

    I personally prefer to leave mine at default settings.

    Oh man, this is literally the derpiest thing i have heard all day..... if any of this does affect ram usage, it would lessen the usage by like .00000001%. Deleting applications, turning off notifications.... and turning off spotlight?! wtf? k, this makes like no sense, and if anyone actually believes you, theyre pretty stupid. Please dont post inaccurate information. I like the idea of the thread, cuz I AM suuuuupppeerr sick of the low amount of ram that these apple products have (i mean seriously.. their most advanced phone is still stuck with 2 gigs of ram) well, anyway, thats all i have to say, peace out.
