    In a nutshell: in general, there is no reason to kill off any apps you do not believe you are using. The Android operating system does a good job of managing its memory. Free RAM is wasted RAM. I'm not sure why your phone is slowing down but for the most part killing off tasks will just force them to restart which uses your CPU and does slow the phone.

    My suggestion would be to uninstall the task killer and restart the phone. Then let the phne do what it is designed to do. Unless you have installed some apps that are just horribly designed, the task killer is the main source of your problems.


    On a side note, there is no need to bump threads.

    I took your advice, lets see how the phone behaves without the task killer.

    Bumped it so goes back to the topic list:)

    Use Home Switcher and go back into the stock launcher. Then make sure you have all the widgets and everything removed from those screens. If you have widgets up and running in the stock launcher, they will still be running when you are in Launcher Pro, and that will slow the phone down. So make sure all your stock launcher screens are empty, and that should help.

    I just uninstalled LauncherPro, but had to do it through the Market, it doesn't show in the app drawer or in Uninstaller Pro. But just go to the Market page for the launcher you want to delete and at the bottom of the page will be an Uninstall button, use that.

    No the stock Android launcher can't be uninstalled. I think that some devs have replaced it with ADW or LP on custom ROMs, but that is only if you are rooted.

    It can be removed if you are rooted. It is dangerous though and I would not recommend doing it.

    In order to minimize its impact on performance, go to the default homescreen and delete everything from it. Done.

    I didn't know that. I had a bunch of Widgets on my stock home screens. Do they mention to do this in the launcher pro literature?

    O.K. maybe this is a stupid question, but, what does it mean to "bump" a thread?

    It is when you reply to it so it gets bumped to the top again and is shown with new posts in it. ;)
