    I did it once when there was an 'ABC' icon stuck over the battery icon. But it did not help, then
    I went into a message and changed the opt to enable suretype and that fixde it. Otherwise
    I have not had to do any manual ones so far that fixed a problem I was having. I hear a lot of people do them I just want to understand what they may have done to cause the need for one.

    The fix you did for change the Type is the correct fix for the ABC issues. The only time you HAVE to do a batterey pull is if the device is locked up, or responding in some strange manner. With some OSs the loss of a call and the failure to reconnect requires a battery pull. Just normal turning off and on once a day will help in most cases.

    Good idea. Hadn't thought of using it like this. However, I didn't think that a Power off/on actually cleared anything in memory, at least it hasn't when I've tested it. What are you achieving by this daily shut down? Again, I like the idea, and will totally steal it if it has a benefit.

    I will do a soft reset once a week regardless of functionality issues. Just seems to help with operating smoothly. I do auto on/off midnight/6am M-F not b/c I think it resets anything but just so I can sleep~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    I just did a manual power off (not a battery pull). Just before it I had 38,843,012 free, after powering back on and waiting for EDGE, I had 38,542,544 (300,468 less). That's with doing nothing in between. This is with the new 4.2.1.96 (if that matters). Wonder what ate up that 293K.

    I do a battery pull every 2-3 weeks, just to keep my bb in good running order.... Like an oil change... Well... Not really...
