    My phone froze up today and wouldn't display any text msg's. I shut it down and restarted it. When the palm logo disappeared, I had the update screen up telling me that the update had been successfully installed. I wasn't aware of any update, so I quickly checked the phone info, and it still states that the version is Palm webOS 1.1.0. Pretty f'd up so I wanted to check and see if anyone else had this problem
    BTW, my phone is rooted and I have the patch to create new pages in the launcher. But I really don't think that is the deal.

    I also was unable to view any info under a person's contact. Everything else seemed to work ok, although a bit laggy.

    Mine shortly did that after I received my replacement phone and did the update. It only did it once (maybe a few hours after I had updated) but never again. I wouldn't worry about it.

    Oh yea...I reset my phone once a day (usually before bed). It's good cause it cleans up the junk it builds in the temporary memory. I hope Palm releases an app where you can schedule a soft reset based on your desired time. I know that Blackberry phones have this app called "Quickpull". Best resetting app ever. I wake up to a "clean" phone.

    I would love to see if one of the homebrew kings could work on this.

    Can someone confirm that this is applicable to the Pre? Does WebOS have poor memory management processes?

    Hmm... I've only restarted my phone twice since I've gotten it. I do development on it so I'm constantly using the memory but I've never run into any of these issues.

    I really don't think there are many memory leaks in the base applications. Perhaps homebrew isn't cleaning up after their apps close?

    Well, that's the thing. I love homebrew apps but I'm not sure how they are in the memory leak department so I do reset it. I mean I run Ubuntu on my laptops but I still reset them once in awhile.

    Would be nice if they development an app that clears the temp memory and gave you the option of clearing the cache on your browser, etc.

    Oh yea...and linux can run slow. I have the HTC MyTouch as well and yea...I reset that thing every so often cause it's a pig!

    The SDK documentation makes note of the cleanup methods where all listeners should be stopped and cleaned up to avoid memory leaks.

    Everyone who uses these homebrew applications seem to have a similar issue so I wouldn't be surprised if they're not cleaning up (or at least not entirely).

    Well, to be fair, the myTouch is Linux with Java running on top. Java is notoriously slow in some areas and a memory hog .

    Not saying webOS isn't; I haven't really looked that far into it.

    My phone has had the same problem with text msg's come up again. I am unable to see the text when I open up a thread, and when I try to compose a new text I can't see any contacts or type anything. Now when I shut it down, it restarts without the update screen popping up, but this has happened twice now. Really strange. I'm thinking webOS doc may have to come out. =(
