The only apps that keep running are Home Screen, Call Log (assume this is phone), Browser, Messages, BB Messenger and Push-to-Talk. I have tried to exit all of these but they remain on. I don't have a Facebook account and have never used it on my phone. No other IM apps either. I had Ubertwitter running smoothly for the past 6 weeks or so but deleted the app when this problem arose. I have performed probably 8 battery pulls since this started as well. The Push-to-Talk app is curious. I have never used it and when I try to start it it warns me that additional charges will apply IF i initialize it, so I always choose "No" and it does not start. Why it still appears in my "running apps" list is a mystery. I have never used it and don't think I even can use it.
I have used several Google apps for years without issue but upon searching here for solutions, I have carefully "exited' or "closed" each one (several times - even though they were already closed).
TMO Blackberry tech is baffled as well.
