Default task killers really hurt your phone

Hello all. Just to clear things up. I just got the evo shift 2.2 and I had a problem with the phone force closing and turning on and off and being slow. I talked to sprint about why it was happening and the explanation I got was the task killer also closes apps that are necessary to the phones inner workings that you can't see when you close your apps. And that with prolonged time of closing everything down your phone starts to read its own mechanisms as something that's not supposed to be there. This eventually will cause your phone to be slow and force close all the time. Pretty much you are killing your phone. The only time you need the task killers is if your phone is older and doesn't have much memory. Watch your memory as long as its above 100 mb you shouldn't have problems without a task killer. Also to kill apps if necessary go to menu-settings-apps-running apps and kill from there. Hope this helps!
