A question about iPhone hardware...

Does anyone know how much RAM is in an iPhone? It isn't listed on the Apple.com tech specs. I was wondering because safari and the ipod both crash a lot and I think it is a memory problem and I hope there is more RAM in the next iPhone.

While I don't have the answer to your RAM question, (I don't believe anybody does; some searches on Google brought no answers) the crashing you report is common.

It occurred frequently in the earlier firmware versions. Check what firmware you're running. If it's 1.0.2 or below, you need to upgrade to either 1.1.1 or 1.1.2. That takes care of the crashing for most people.

I also found back before 1.1.1 that emptying Safari's cache prevents some crashes.

I appreciate that information, I'm running 1.1.2 and still have the problem (not as bad as I used too, but bad on sites with many pictures). I will try reinstalling the firmware, that may very well solve the problem. Thanks again.
