I had just recently bought a 6681 to replace a 6630 and I was informed their specs are nearly the same.
I main beef is that the free RAM is far lower than 6630 (or 6680 for that matter). Why is this so? Note this is not memory Card space or local phone (flash) memory. This is operating memory RAM. (Sorry to explain too much, but the service center seriously cannot understand this simple concept)
My old 6630 had 8100KB free memory (I use Fexplorer and read the top most item above C: It’s listed as FreeMem) My 6681 is showing 6300KB after a reboot. Why is this so? I was under the impression both 6630 and 6681 has 20MB of total RAM. They should have roughly the same amount of RAM free.
Also I'm suspecting a hardware problem but the shop refuses to admit anything. The 6680 which nearly identical (maybe supposed to have 2MB more flash memory C: ) also has more free RAM. I ran Fexplorer on that phone at the shop at it showed ~ 8052KB. The nearly 2 MBs difference is, I believe, causing a lot of problems. I often get Memory Full error when running apps. I find that unacceptable.
Is there an application that can show how much real RAM is installed on the phone? I'd like to know whether I have a defective unit. It seems the service center in Malaysia doesn’t know anything. The only they seem to be able to understand is whether the phone can make or receive phone calls.
I've tried a hard reset by using code (*#7370#). This doesn’t seem to work. It did clear my phone book.
I found on another website to:-
Switch off the phone.
1.Hold down the following three buttons: Green (call answer) button, * button, and '3' button
2.While holding these buttons, press the power button and switch on the phone
3.When the message 'Formatting' appears on the screen, release all of the buttons
This, while very difficult to pull off, seemed to work. I think. Most apps seems missing however the Free RAM is still the same.
I did *#0000# and got the following:-
I'm hopping there's an updated ROM to fix this problem but I'm not too sure.
If anyone has any ideas, please post it. Any help is very much appreciated.
