Re: Poor Battery Bold 9900

Yes, Slacker uses a tiny bit. Pandora uses quite a bit more, even "unused". But how and why do apps use CPU time when they aren't even run?

You can just use backspace.

Edit: Sorry, I misread your question. I thought you were talking about selected text. No, I don't think you can delete forward.

I believe the video capture format is higher-res on the 9780 (though not HD). I don't know if this is simply due to OS 6. I have an 8900 too, and I plan to wait for the 9780.
