    When I go into task manager on my non-rooted i727, I see I only have one active application, widget locker for example. When I go to look at RAM usage, its somewhere around 360-450. I select clear memory and it says 21 applications closed. Is there a way I can see what these 21 applications are since they are not showing up in the active application list? I imagine some of the apps I've installed are contributing to this but how can I tell which ones maybe running processes in the background?

    A little concerned that something is causing my phone to act sluggishly at times...

    Thanks in advance.......

    Is there any way for me to uninstall the ATT bloatware like navigations and movies?

    - Buy/Install Titanium Backup
    - "Freeze" the apps you want instead of uninstalling them unless you are SURE that uninstalling them won't cause problems with other systems or update capabilities.

    I have the same problem. And the problem is that they DO NOT show up in the running services. but when clearing ram data it will say 11 (or whatever) applications close. I would like to know where to view these applications if they don't show up in the running services, and also how to keep them off.
