    I have had my phone freeze up a few times now. I might be running a lot with my live wall paper but it seems to be happening a lot lately. Is pulling the battery bad for your phone or should I just wait the few min till it reboots ? And one more question will the phone always reboot it self ?

    if its frozen, thats about the only option you have, short of the sledge hammer method

    The "techs" at the Sprint store do it all the time, everytime I go in there. So it cant be that bad.

    If its frozen, there really isn't much you can do. If its not frozen, and just going really slow, its somewhat risky. If its writing data to the memory card or such, it can cause data corruption.

    Fortunately, I haven't done a battery pull in months....

    No, pulling battery typically does not damage the phone (really any phone).
