    What would you guys say is the/your average available memory on your iphone? Because mine seem relatively low at 110 MB. Thanks in advanced.

    Have you read the TiPb blog post about killing apps? (can't post the link because I don't have 10 posts yet)

    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.

    iPhone 4 252MB free @ the moment. You could like the person above me said and kill all your apps through the app switcher then reboot and see if it goes back or not.

    I have 137MB free at the moment. I only see 200MB-300MB+ after I do a fresh hard reset. That's normal I would assume?

    it's going to fluctuate with anything you do with the device. after killing processes and a respring i'm typically around 340mb (iP4 16gb)

    i never let it get down below 175mb, i am constantly killing processes with sbsettings

    Oh ok. I think I'm going to start doing that. Do you use the free up memory option or do you just manual kill specific processes?

    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 kill processes and free up mem via sbsettings

    fyi: i have tried to leave the apps alone in the switcher, with the exception of Pandora, and it seems to be fine.. i guess

    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?

    Thanks, Cody
