Default Minimum Background Applications

Please Login to Remove!

I'm pretty new to BB and wanted to know if there was a certain set of applications that have to be running in the background. I'm trying to maximize battery life for my 8330 Curve.

I hit Alt-Escape and then close applications, but I can't seem to get rid of
1. Messages
2. EmpowerMailViewer
3. Home Screen
4. Browser
5. Call Log
6. Blackberry Messenger

Now if I have to keep them running, fine. But I personally don't use the messenger. I don't know what if any effect they have on battery life, but thought I'd ask.

Thanks!

Those will always be present, have to be. You can't close them. BE SURE that your browser is not left on an active webpage, but rather only at the homescreen or bookmark screen.

If you're 100% certain you don't need blackberry messenger you can hook up your phone via desktop manager, run the apploader and use that to remove the blackberry messenger from your phone in it's entirety.

Even I have a minimal set of applications running in my berry but I am having facing 2 problems..

1) Very fast battery discharge as compare to .69 or even .52.
2) Memory leak seems to be now almost 1MB per day.

I am currently using the iPhonish theme on my berry. Any thoughts?

If you have fast battery discharge and a memory leak, I would suspect some application running in the background that you forgot to exit it out of.
