    But I had to take a picture of my phone when I got the error. This was before I learned to take screen captures.

    I got this error, after I closed all open apps (tossed away all cards). Do some of these apps run in the background or something? Nothing was open, and I kept getting it.


    but...

    When it said "Sorry, Too Many Cards", it looked like it was referring to my wallpaper, which was a bunch of "Playing Cards" from poker.com. haha

    I'd toss the 3 of clubs, and one of the deuces. I'd have Aces full. LOL

    For now... reboot and it will go away.

    I get this repeatedly, even after restarts. Sucks royally.

    while restarting will temporarily be a solution... i just throw all my cards away and open a program.. it has worked every time for me.


    say i have 7 programs open... and i get rid of 3 ... it doesn't work... but if i throw all 7 cards away... i can go ahead and open any program after that... while it is a pain it's an easy solution for me.

    "Too many cards open" is probably a simpler way of saying "not enough memory to open this program." Probably a memory leak somewhere if closing apps doesn't help.

    I'm getting this now more than ever. Memory management on this device is just...not there yet. AT ALL.

    Try this...close all cards. Wait 5-10 mins. You should be ok after that. There is some sort of memory cleanup/garbage collection so you just need to give it time to do its thing.

    OR you could reboot and be back up in 2+ minutes. Either way, the phone becomes nigh unusable sometimes, and that's inexcusable. I don't give it a pass on Windows Mobile, and I'm not giving it a pass here.

    Develop a task killer/memory manager/app manager app already, Palm.

    I am getting this message a lot with only one card open. Given the processor speed/power, this is ridiculous. This is an issue that needs immediate attention. Sometimes I'm just too annoyed and stop browsing.

    The other day I didn't have any cards open. I went to open an app and got the too many cards message. I tried a few different apps and the only one that opened was the phone dial pad. I rebooted and it went away but still, kind of strange. I have no hacks or homebrew apps.
    Cheers,

    I've mentioned this before, but if homebrew applications do not clean up their listeners (or other, external resources) then they'll become a memory leak. After a while, it adds up.

    Try restarting or removing some homebrew.

    Just reboot...there is def memory leakage but nothing too substantial i think. Every time i get this with a couple of cards open i just restart and its back to being perfect again.

    I get this quite frequently, esp since 1.2.1. Happens most of the time with the browser, esp if I have a page loading. Or if I have WSJ.com open...
