    blackberry messenger

    Advertisement



    Hi guys

    so i wanna use blackberry messenger and pin all you guys but hey i can't close the damn thing when i don't need it.
    It's still minimized in the background of my bb and taking up memory. Is there anyway to close it down and open it again like the other IM clients?

    Nope, sorry, it always runs in the background if installed.

    You're welcome

    Not positive about how much exactly it keeps in use. I'm sure there are a number of factors including, how many open conversations you have, how many contacts you have and how often they change their status. If you delete finished conversations that should help keep down the amount of memory that's tied up.

    I generally don't find BBM to be a big memory hog, not like Viigo and many other 3rd party apps.........

    I use BB messenger all the time and I don't ever notice it's running unless I get a new message. Are you ending open converstions?

    Good to know that you love to chat.. What you can do is change your status... But as far as getting the BBM to complete close.. You can't. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    I always have BBM open with someone. I wonder if it's really starting to effect my work? Meh...BBM keeps me awake all day!

    I've never notice much memory drain at all. I listen to live radio via xplayer in the background most of the day, search the internet, make calls, email.

    I wouldn't worry about it.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ can't take up that much, and I always have conversations open while texting and emailing all at the same time. No lag/issues here.
