    Apps in the background

    Advertisement



    Hi everyone,

    I was wondering what apps are required to run at all times in the background the reason why i am asking is because i noticed that my phone app, browser, home, and messenger and always running is this normal or should they be closed? I tried closing them from the trackwheel menu and still they remain open. Any ideas ladies and gentlemen?

    Well with that said i understand that part because my bb is connected to cingular's network but why would the browser want to be on at all times? Is it necessary? I could understand mail wanting to be on 24/7 because it has to always check and such but why the browser i don't use it for anything right now.

    Think about this, If the Phone, and Email weren't always running, you wouldn't be able to get Phone calls or Email. If the Browser wasn't running your wouldn't get Browser Push messages and If the home screen wasn't active, you couldn't go to open any other apps. Anything the depends on any type of push to your BB, requires it to be always running or it won't work as desired.

    Hope this helps
