    OK, so I'm pretty new to the android scene, but must say I am really enjoying the platform.

    I have a question.

    I have Advanced Task Manager installed, and it is telling me I have 38MB of free memory.
    I have mainly apps like Google Talk, Facebook, Messages, Gmail, Handcent SMS, Touchdown running.
    Most of these are neecessary, apart form having messages and handcent. But I'm not sure how to stop using messages altogether.

    Is that amount of memory decent enough ? Should I not use advanced task manager altogether ?

    I'm not saying it's laggy, it's not really, but I feel it could do with a little more zing.

    Any advice for anoob would be greatly appreciated.

    hmmm. weird. I have EXACTLY 14 apps that I have downloaded and installed.
    SD Card and phone storage is telling me I have 90Mb of available space.
    Adv Task Manager says I have 33Mb of free mem.
    I currently have the following apps running.
    Power Manager
    Google Talk
    Handcent SMS
    Facebook
    GMail
    Dolphon Browser
    Adv Task Manager

    Is there a direct relation between free mem in adv task manager and the 90MB available ? I'm pretty confused.

    OK Internal Memory widget seems to be working OK.
    Used 73 Mb out of 159, and settings says I have 86Mb availablem which agrees.
    However, My task manager says available Memory = 27Mb. Where does it get that from ?

    Make sure you clear the cache in your browser, you'll get back a good amount of memory back sometimes.
