    Got a Samsung Moment a couple of weeks ago. Last night starting using Astrid (Task/ToDo app), which came pre-installed on my phone.

    When I launched Astrid for the first time, I got a warning message -- something about making sure Sprint Update or Sprint Updater doesn't kill Astrid, or ruin it, or something. :eek:

    Clearly, I didn't understand the message. But I clicked "Okay" anyway, and started using Astrid.

    But I'm worried that a Sprint Update could erase all my Astrid data -- my To Do's. I'm reluctant to create many Astrid tasks until I know how to prevent them from being unexpectedly erased. My questions:

    • Can anyone explain the situation to me? (e.g., I have no idea who/when/how/where/what Sprint updates)

    • Can anyone explain what I need to do to prevent the catastrophe about which Astrid was warning me? :)
    Thank you.

    I got a similar message, it was warning about using task killers. If you use an automatic task killer and it kills Astrid, you will not receive an alarm from Astrid.
