Default What is the difference between quick pull lite and powering down?

Please Login to Remove!

I saw quick pull lite recommended on BB forums so I have it but I am not clear on the difference between Quick pull lite and powering down the BB and then powering up. Is it not the same thing?

Quick Pull simulates a hard reset. (Equivalent of physically removing the battery and putting it back in.)

Which helps free up application memory and increase performance on your phone.

Which?

A true powered on battery pull helps the most.

QuickPull comes in a close second, but does not replace a true powered on battery pull.

oh ok.

Well a true battery pull still does more, although I do use QP as well.

whats the best way to do a battery pull? Have the phone in standby then do it or just take it out while the phones on?

With the device powered on, remove the battery a few seconds and replace.

Do not put it in standby.

No one talked about powering off and on. When does this NOT do that a battery pull does.
