    I just got the lg ally for my first smartphone on Verizon. I do not use any apps to speak of but I noticed I used 175 mb data in just two weeks.I know it's not much but I want to "nip it in the bud" so to speak. So if I am doing something careless I want to know if I need the advanced task killer.Thank you for any insight..Dave

    task killers are useless on the phone. Did you turn off autosync?

    Drains battery, they're always working in the background in some manner, you have to constantly tell them which apps to ignore, & then some people forget which apps need to be excluded from task killers, like if they downloaded a clock widget. The task killer will get hold of it & time will be wrong, lol

    To close apps you use the back key (if the app has no exit button), or if you hit home & forget about it android will close it after a certain period of inactivity.
