    Is there anyway to get virtual memory on the iPhone so memory will dump to the flash storage (just like on a desktop OS) so apps don't crash while running in the background?

    that would be cool!, so many storage space, apps, and so many things you can do, its hearth breaking that it runs so low on memory

    Hmm... I though the iPhone already had a working swap system in place... 'top' reports VM statistics (pageins, pageouts, etc.), so I'd be surprised if it wasn't already paging stuff to disk (i.e. flash). It's been a while since I last examined that aspect of the OS, so I very well could be wrong...
