    Question A couple questions (new to BB)

    Advertisement



    Are the programs that are open when I hold alt-escape taking up memory/battery life?

    Should they be closed?

    What is the importance/significance of my PIN#?
    I know it's like a direct text message but is there more use for it?

    Thanks in advance!

    edit - just found out some info about one of my questions.

    The programs will take up some memory and depending on their function they will have a bit of a drain on your battery. There are 5 applications that will always be running though. Messages, Browser. Phone, Home Screen, and Blackberry Messenger. Other than that you can close them, but some need to stay open to continue to work. i.e. blackberry alerts, Colour Pearl, BB Weather. Jivetalk etc.

    PIN you hit right on the head. It's just that Personal Identification Number used for PIN messages and in BB Messenger.

    Hope that helps
