    Default Task Killer

    Bought an Incredible from Verizon. Rep installed ATK right away. Said it will save my battery.

    Being the phone guy at work, everyone always comes to me to talk phone news. A friend came to me Saturday to tell me his mother wanted to get a smartphone and she decided on the samsung fascinate with Verizon. First thing the rep did after setting up the phone was installed advanced task killer. That friend deleted it off her phone after she showed him the phone and asked how to do a few things. Ridiculous for them to be installing task killers or even recommending them IMO.

    Purchased at a Sprint Store and the sales rep said that I would want to install a task killer. For what it's worth, one was installed on every floor model that I played with as well.

    Evo from a sprint store, they wanted to put one on but when I mentioned that I worked for sprint they let me take care of it myself. Needless to say, it's never been installed.

    TMO Vibrant.

    No, they did not. Coming from a BB, I thought it a good idea and installed myself until I started reading about on the forums and quickly uninstalled.

    1) Sprint
    2) when I first got my Hero the rep told me to install ATK. I ordered my Evo online but I had to go to Sprint store cuz it wouldn't activate. Sure enough a rep told me to install ATK.

    The only phone I have ever purchased at a Store in person was the Evo and the rep did not mention anything whatsoever to me about a task manager. This was the only time I went into a store to buy an Android phone seeing as it was impossible to get an Evo online at the time. I tend to ignore what most reps say because a majority of the time they dont know what they are talking about.

    This happened to me with both the Android phones I've gotten, one for my wife, one for my sister-in-law (since neither are techies):

    Sprint corporate store (two different stores), both offered to install it.

    I told them no thanks and they both look at me incredulously like "how can you not take my advice?".

    I got my Droid Incredible about a month ago at a Verizon store.

    The sales guy installed ATK during setup and showed me how to use it.

    1.) Verizon HTC Incredible.

    Purchased with OS 2.1.

    I installed ATK and found that it did indeed help.

    2.) Froyo 2.2 update came through... started seeing major battery issues. Uninstalled ATK and the battery issues went back to normal.

    I now use RUNNING SERVICES when I need to kill something and that has managed things pretty well.

    1)Verizon - Droid Incredible
    2) Rep installed ATK. I went along at the time because I was new to Android and was most recently on a Blackberry and wasn't aware. I removed a week or two later when I found your forums.

    On my Incredible (several phones ago) I had to take it to Verizon to have it activated. The sales rep did install a task killer and gave me a photocopied-handwritten list of suggested apps.

    When I bought my HTC Hero and then the Evo, Sprint reps at the stores pimped the ATK. If I had issues with the HTC Hero phone, the mantra was "Dowload first ATK then come back if there is a bug or lag." With the Evo, haven't had problems, but when I bought it, ATK! ATK!
