I thought the issue was that you would have to physically remove the battery to change it, in which case everything in SDRAM would be gone. Is this not the case? I haven't read everything that's come through the list so I may have missed something.

Well, that's true for simple phones, OTOH these have not much for
additional storage anyway. On my Nokia 9500 restarting is quite a
pain, because it involves restarting a number of applications.
(side note, one can change the memory card on the 9500 without
switching the phone off).
