Verizon Suggests Freeze-Fix to Some Q9c Users
Luke just shot us an email about a very strange text he just received from Verizon regarding his Q9c:
So we dutifully went over to the linked site and saw that they're asking a very strange question. When you head to Start -> System Tools -> Memory Manager, they ask if you have a certain amount of memory listed as free, namely 48.94mb. If you check “yes” and hit next, you get this scary message:
Weird? Weird. Apparently Q9c devices that haven't been updated to WM6.1 are prone to freezes on startup if they have exactly 48.94mb of storage memory free. Their recommendation: upgrade to 6.1. Our recommendation: do just that (here's a link), then sit and wonder why exactly a certain amount of free storage memory could potentially freeze your device.
Thanks for the heads-up, Luke!

48.94 translates to 30 in Hex and 110000 in Binary. I would suggest that that number represents an error in the system.
Once again, I don't know for fact, but only know that sometimes, strange, random numbers are the engineers way of showing errors (or anamolies).
48 is 30 in hex and 110000 in binary, not 48.94.
