    Hi guys,

    It's good to have a Droid forums! I have a question, I've been adjusting my droid eris settings to save battery time. I installed the Handcent SMS to replace the SMS default application so that it does not stay on all time, but every time I check my phone with Advanced Task Manager Killer the Handcent SMS and Skype Mobile are ALWAYS ON.

    What can I do to turn them off permanently and thus save battery time???
    Answers will be highly appreciated.

    Thanks!!

    You're not saving any battery life by killing them. Let them reside in the background.

    Really? I thought SMS connection was a big battery drainer, as mentioned in other posts. I'll see how it is affected then.
