    I don't think its possible. Unless you do a battery pull. Lol. Maybe other stackers know if there's a way. But I don't think there is.

    The closest thing would be a task manager app similar to windows mobile devices that would allow you to see running apps and kill select ones or all....not sure this exists for blackberry.

    Try quickpull. Its free and can be set to reboot your phone daily(middle of night or whenever) so that your memory is consistently refreshed and free of apps running in the background.

    Its the easiest continuing maintenance you can perform on your blackberry as its 100% automated. Emptying your browser cache often will also keep your berry running smooth.

    I know this isn't the exact answer, but u can do a soft reset rather than a battery pull. On my curve its "alt""right shift""del". Hold those down and the phone does a true reset. Its the control-alt-delete of the blackberry world.

    Yeah, but that soft reset doesn't clear leaked memory near as well as a battery pull or QuickPull. Its ok if you're in a hurry and don't have time to wait for full restart though.

    Hey jzarowitz,

    I don't know if the bold is the same way, but I know on my old 8130 I could hold shift and the back key and it would let me scroll through the open apps, much like a alt tab on the pc.

    It's not a kill all but you can take out one at a time. When you get to it, you just hit menu and close, instead of the back key to get out of the program. The back key doesn't close apps like you would think it does.


    Now if it's more like the Storm, you can hold the menu key and the same thing will pop up, and you can continue the process.
