    not really a tip, but learn to love NinjaMorph. change your status bar colors, and icons to ones you want.

    dont use a task killer

    don't use a virus scanner.

    clear cache at least once a week (takes 15 seconds)

    reboot phone once every couple days

    clear battery stats once a month (this ensures the best battery life possible)

    Android phones don't need them. The OS takes care of itself. And you don't need a task-killer to stop an app from running. You can do it yourself thru the phone's functions........ if you ever have to.

    -Settings
    -Applications
    -Running services
    -click on the app and and hit stop.

    Most apps do what your phone can do already. They just take you to the final step.
