I have a little more experience with Pocket PC (sorry) than BB (which I now love, btw)...so I can only compare because of my past experience.
I know in PPC you can go to Settings>Memory and look at running apps and close them down, I guess just to free up memory. In BB, I figure the ALT+ESC is similar? I ask because if I access a bunch of different apps, I can ALT+ESC, select them and then close them, but then there are some like the browser and messages icon that I can toggle to and then wheel-click and close...but no matter how many times I do this, the broswer and messages icon are always in the "list" of apps in the ALT+ESC feature.
Am I just being picky, that I'd like to see them not appear on this "list" of "active" apps when I know I selected "Close" from the wheel menu? The Home and Phone icon, I guess I figure ALWAYS have to be there, by why the Messages and Browser? I launched Tasks or Notes and I was able to close those...why can I not close Broswer or Messages?
I was going to add this question to this post
but my question was general and not specifically 8700 related (at least I don't THINK it is). I have an 8700g with TMO if that matters (but I'm sure it does not). Thanks.
