Unhappy Killing Applications

Please Login to Remove!

Would someone please tell me how to Kill active tasks on the 8830?

I swear there isn't any information on the web for this and its about made me throw this thing at a wall. I could take the battery out, but that is time consuming and really not a solution.

Thank-you!

What do you want to do? And how is it causing you a problem not being able to do it?

jsinglet, I'll make some assumptions and give some info:

- email is always on, likewise browser and blackberry messenger

- native apps, like calendar, and third party apps, like google maps, can be closed

'Kill' has no meaning to me.

I frankly don't pay a great deal of attention to what apps I leave running. Don't have to. It's never a problem.

Hope that helps.

I have this AIM/ICQ client and for some reason it stays in a "trying to connect" state with a message "retrieving groups" but never finishes and the cancel button will not work.

I have tried powering off my phone but when I go look at the ICQ app again, there it sits in the same state.

*About the immature comments*
I didn't ask to be laughed at .. you retards could have just ignored this, but I guess that just shows the maturity level of most people who spend their days on forums instead of leading real and productive lives. I only use forums when I need legitimate help ... if you didn't have anything constructive to say, then keep your mouth shut.

If you need help with that .. send me a private message and I will give you directions to my place so we can talk about it face to face!

So this chat client, when it is stuck in this state, you are unable to open a menu and close it? I guess that is what you are saying. If so, I don't know what else to do but first try reboot and then hard reset if necessary. I don't think power off and on will do anything, which you found.

Name the particular app and maybe someone can speak specifically to it.

what chat client are you using? are you saying that the chat client is trying to connect, so it causes the BB to lock up and thus require a battery pull? or it is merely for battery life preservation that you want to close out of this program. you said that it locks up, perhaps you should check the permissions that you have it set to and set it to allow all. if you can't get to the edit permissions, then go ahead and connect to DM and uninstall, set default permissions to allow all, and reinstall it.

hope that helps a bit.

also, you don't have to bash on other people's comments and say that because they are on forums means that they don't live a real and productive life. how can a forum function without the people that come on it and answer questions?

Correct ... while viewing the connect screen, nothing except the Red button on the right side works...which just returns me to the Home Screen.

I went looking for any sort of app that could kill a hung program, but no luck.

Thanks for your help.

No the BB is fine. Its just that I do use AIM/ICQ on my BB and for whatever reason its stuck. I don't get access to any of the menus, but can exit to the Home Screen. I just would like to kill this process and restart it.

My comments were because I really do have a legit problem and am a bit frustrated. The first two replies to my question were completely unneeded and in my opinion immature which does reflect the maturity level of quite a large number of people who lurk on forums just for the chance to show off their arses with ridiculous comments that help no one. I would think that a forum for a heavily used product such as the Blackberry would have a more helpful community. However, in real life, those same people wouldn't have the balls to step up and say anything to me.

Don't know how it is done on your model, but on 8700, alt-cap-del will reboot the handset. That is probably your best bet if you can't bring up the app menu to close it. Like I said...well, as far as I know, there is no way to otherwise close the app when it is doing what you describe. And actually, I've never faced such a problem on the blackberry.

I'll give that a shot in a sec ... I wonder if the 8830 being so new that there may be a bug or two?

Don't know about bug. Maybe corrupted or bad install. You could try deleting the app on the 8830 and reinstalling.

(You said battery pull doesn't fix. It still hangs again even after?)

Nope ... that isn't it....Anyone know what the reboot sequence is for the 8830?
Or do I have to remove the battery?

BTW ... I have seen a few other forum posts from people with issues with this 8830 as well, though not on this forum so I won't advertise where I saw them.

No the battery removal I am sure works .. the power off and back on using the power button on top doesn't work.

I am going to remove the battery now so I can try and delete this app and reinstall.

Does Blackberry Messenger work with AIM/ICQ and others?

Look for blackberry FAQ link at the top of the page.

Also, no problem with honest pointer to another site to spread useful info.

The battery pull resets the device, but it doesn't cure the app hanging again in the near future, correct? That's what I understand you to be saying.

Blackberry messenger is based in PIN numbers. It is blackberry to blackberry.

Are you using JiveTalk? If not, I recommend that instead. Never had a problem with it.

As for your comments, you yourself were being immature calling people out and threatening them so who are you to give advice about being mature? There's really no need to start a flame and claim that those do not have productive lives. Using term's like "balls" only shows your maturity level. Practice what you preach. Take it with a grain of salt.

Me thinks somebody has anger management issues... His skirt must have blown up over his head.

Looks who's a tough guy behind the veil of privacy of a forum. Don't hit us with your purse!

This is the point where I'd usually insert some immature joke about his anatomy, but I'll refrain this time.

In my humble opinion, this chick should be banned from posting until she provides a therapist note.

I'm here all week! Don't forget to tip your waitress.

Default Aim

I've had problems with every device that I've tried to use AIM on. Personally I have my cell number with AIM so the messages are forwarded to my SMS and reply from there.

RF

Good luck!
