According to that, iOS is suppose to handle the management of memory. Then again, other users claim that their iPhones slow down until they manually kill some apps and free up memory.
I have a 3GS (which only has 256MB of RAM) and I usually only have 20-30MB free but my phone rarely lags.

I have 357 MB free directly after a reset (not respring) and I am running around 321 MB free on average. I usually kill the apps I am not using via (MultiCleaner Cydia app). I am running an Iphone 4 (iOS 4.2.1 GreenPois0n). I believe there is a Tipb tip pinned somewhere about not having to kill apps as modern OS's will handle the memory stuff automatically. I heard this via Tipb's podcast.

I have vip4 and sometimes see mine as low as 28. I use sbsettings to kill process, but sometimes takes 4-5 attempts before it gets back to the 300+ range. I feel a lag sometimes and it's always below 100 when I do. I don't think the os kills the process to reclaim memory as good as everyone says it does. Otherwise we would feel the lag.
I use sbsettings, but would like to try out a few others. Other than the app mentioned above, anyone else recommend a good memory manager or processes killer?
