Randomly when I open things such as google earth and etc. My iPhone has a pop-up that says I am running low on disk space, but when I plug in my iPhone to iTunes it says I have 2.17gb left of room?

Why does it do this? I synced it a few times seeing if it would stop but Ill wait and see if it does it soon.

Probably means Virtual Memory/RAM

Hmmm ... Try clearing your Safari Cache:

Settings -> Safari -> Clear Cache

I have this problem whenever I try to run Monopoly. Is there a way for me to clear the ram?

If you have the SBsettings there is a clear RAM button.

A reboot or hard reset should clear the RAM, shouldn't it?

That's not necessary. The iPhone can manage its memory just fine. I just try to remember to reboot every couple days.

If you open your task switcher and clear everything out it will free up a lot of ram. Even the apps that don't keep running in the background use a little bit of ram just to keep the icons in the multitasker.
