    I got a task manager now and I only have like 148mb free. I came from a storm and on a good battery pull I would have 35mb but after a few hours I was rocking 19mb and ready to do a quick pull.

    Mak, dump the task manager. Totally useless on Android and can cause many problems. The OS closes apps as needed. Welcome to 2010!

    IMO, I wouldn't even bother installing a task manager on Android. The operating system automatically manages memory and closes apps when necessary so you shouldn't have to do anything!

    When I first came to Android from my S2 all I could think of was, "Once I was blind, but now I see"!!

    lol...this was my biggest gripe with BB OS....why in the world do you have to restart the phone after every single app install/uninstall. God it feels good to be away from all that!

    As long as you're over ~40MB Sense will work fine and stay pretty snappy. At 26MB, the phone will have to start shutting things down just to run the OS. Without looking I'd imagine it's set to attempt to keep ~32 MB free at all times.

    In other words, you're not even close to having to worry about it
