    Hope you guys can help. Since the 2.1 update I have certain apps which appear to be opening in the background when I didn't open them. I have Advanced Task Killer, and when I go in for example it shows Messages running, when I kill it, it will reappear in 30 secs or so, the same with MP3 store. Can these apps be stopped so they don't take up memory or what's the deal here. Thanks for any help.

    No, many of the stock apps will keep restarting and by killing them you are only slowing your phones down as well as killing the battery sooner because they will start back up automatically.

    Someone can correct me if I'm wrong, but if you don't have messages running, I don't believe it will retrieve your text messages from the server.

    I'm not sure why the MP3 store keeps coming up (it comes up on mine too).

    I agree mp3 store is aggrivating and can't be removed either.
