In the App Manager, running, the above shows up as running. Several other forum members have verified the same.
Does anyone know why this is showing as a running app? I assume this is the app that checks if you have a update ready for download or something like that.
Several other forum members made mention when they checked for a update the update checker crashed or froze up.
Can anyone explain. Should the app show its running in the manager?

That is exactly what it is. An app that calls home to at&t to check for updates. Like all other apps, once the app starts, either by your choosing our by the system, it will stay in the background until closed or not needed anymore.

I'm having trouble with this service just constantly running, and the force close option is not available. Is there another way to shut it down? Its eating my battery, and I'm assuming, bandwidth.
