Thread: Iphone memory loops from high to low memory every 20 or so seconds closing apps

    Unhappy Iphone memory loops from high to low memory every 20 or so seconds closing apps
    I have a 3gs 5.0.1. I have a problem that I have not seen discussed on any forum yet, unless im searching for the wrong tag.

    I have EVERYTHING on the springboard turned off (that I know of). I have set my memory usage to display on the status bar. with the phone sitting idle, I can watch the memory go from 146 to 7mb in about 20 second or so, then immediately go back to 146mb and continue to repeat the process. If I open ANY app during the process, it will not crash the springboard but it will close the app. So basically I cant run anything on my phone for more that 20 or so seconds. I have looked at the reports with the settings menu but that is seriously a foreign language to me. I have not yet deleted all of my apps or attempted to restore my phone. I really want to ask around before I get to this point. Can anyone offer me a suggestion other than restore?

    Please bare with me, I am not an expert at any of this but I can do more than average user.

    I noticed that this page has the ability to post pictures or files, if you tell me what to go get off my phone that will help you diag. the problem, I will figure it out.

    Thanks in advance!!

    Definitely interesting... I didn't have iOS 5.x on longer than a few days...didn't notice this issue...perhaps a clean restore is in you unlock?

    Oooo I noticed just now u have 5.0.1...restoring to that may be difficult as the signing window has been closed for a few days now...
