Hi everyone,

Running app on cell-phone while doing other things, like opening msn, or talk for gmail, or skype, etc. wouldn't that take too much of the battery or not!!

Also, is it fine to open some app all the time!! because I usually open some of the app to check messages. But I am not sure if you can keep it open most of the time like skype.

If I keep any app running all day or most of the time, would it take data all the time "while it's running" or only when you use the app. Because I am thinking to keep my skype open 24 hours, and my data is 500 MB.


Thank you in advance,

Peace for now

SKYPE on a BB? No way, there is no SKYPE client for the BB yet AFAIK.

As for app running, if they are using data, then they will eat into your data allocation as well as the battery. I would not just leave them open for no reason.
