Are you having apps freeze up and excessive force closes? if this is the case perhaps the applications the you are running need to be investigated and perhaps we can help you pin point the problem

Without sparking an age old debate let me ask this, is there any benefits to using ATK and why do you think VZ recommends using it on our devices?

I quit using ATK after I realized it was causing more problems than it was preventing them. The Android OS doesnt rely on memory or RAM for its apps. It relies on CPU and constanly killing apps or having ATK kill apps to free up memory detroys your CPU usage and in turn, boggs down your phone. Read this article, it really opened my eyes and helped me understand Android and how it works.

There are no real benefits to using a task killer. the only time you may need it is if a task locks up. But their are native actions you can take to shut down an app, such as going to settings>applications>manage applications, find the app and shut it down.... Is that alot of steps to shut down an app,,,yes but you shouldnt have to do it often and with a couple of clicks you will save yourself some unneeded grief
