    Ive got the iPhone 3G and I'm running jailbroken 2.1. I notice that if I keep the phone in standby mode for a few days things start to slow down. I need to actually reboot the phone every few days to keep it snappy. Anyone else with similar experiences?

    lol, i know exactly what you mean. I have an iPod Touch Gen1 and i have noticed that after installing more and more software and just over time it starts to slow down. I have been told that the iphone and the touch are some what similar to a computer in that they run back ground programs or continue to run some programs after closing it. And just like a computer they need to be restarted. I also noticed that over time they start to take longer to boot. But after updating it goes back to normal. As a means to avoid the slowing down thing i tend to sart the ipod from scratch every now and then (like every 2 to 3 month)

    Well since your jailbroken, most likely you have some background processes running. E.g. Winterboard? I have noticed if i disable winterboard, springboard loads snappier and smoother.

    "Every few days" is pretty good. The more apps you have, the more resources the device uses, I think it's healthy to reboot once a day, to free up memory, besides it takes around 2 minutes...

    IntelliScreen 2.22 had serious memory leakage issues, if you don't have 2.23 already, update it.

    The other day I got a message saying that my touch was low on memory and needed to restart..

    so if it gets bad enough the message should pop up.

    Well of course thats true.
    You need to restart every operating thing.
    Take a human for example, lets keep you awake for a week and see what happens. You'll need a reboot (sleep) just like an iPhone.
