    ok so I'm at dinner and I was playing a game. A message poped up and it said close app because iPhone memory was low. Now my iPhone dosent have any music or movies just six apps. I check my memory and it said I have 14 gb left. Should I swap my phone for a new one

    I know that but if my phone says memory low and I check my memory and I have a lot of space then there seems to be a problem

    Your 14GB was in the NAND memory.

    The memory the game was talking about was RAM. RAM is not NAND, and is not related to your iPhone capacity.

    If you are using "Aurora Feint" It happens all the time.

    Memory is just how much an app can 'memorize' at one time. RAM is how much an app can hold all together.

    was that the solitaire app?

    that just happened to me- i chose to ignore it and it worked just fine

    that message is definately app-generated, not springboard-generated, and I can't see how it's any of the app's business to make judgement on your memory, let alone falsely accuse you of it being full

    The memory warnings are generated by the OS.

    The phone needs to be restarted several times/day, depending on how many APPS that you have opened that day. I had a similar problem, and I was told by a Genius that after the APP closes, the iphone dosen't entirely release the memory, and resetting the phone does so.

    Hopefully a future software update will improve memory management on the phone.

    Really?

    I've never seen it before. Ever. Don't recall ever stumbling accross any memory strings either.
