Unless you're in the application, it is not 'running'.

Messages, Phone, Messenger, and Browser have to always be open so that they can respond to events like calls and pushes.
Just ignore them and don't worry about them, they're not affecting anything.

BlackBerry messenger is not carrier dependent. As long as you have a BlackBerry data plan you can use it to message other BlackBerries

No it is not connected to ANYTHING else. It is BlackBerry messenger and that is it. If you don't use BB messenger then delete it. Enough said.

It's understandable you want to have the least amout of programs running and a lean mean machine, but the browser and bbmessenger are things you should just forget about removing.

Of course not. As far as the device is concerned it's just another 3rd party application.
