    I have my screen set to shutoff and lock immediately, but today it is not shutting off, and staying on. I installed easy app killer, but I closed it. Could that be the problem?

    Also, my phone with no apps open says about 480megs of memory used. That seems like quite a bit, is that normal?

    First of all, uninstall the appkiller, you won't be needing it at all. The phone itself does a pretty good job of regulating apps in the background, and closes apps when it needs to, and saves the apps that needs to be running in the background. Having an appkiller will only mess up the regulating process of the system.

    Second, try a soft reset of the phone that will clear all the memory. (Hold power button > reset). If not, try a hard reset. (Hold down power button for 10~15 seconds).

    Third, that is quite normal. With moderate usage with apps, my memory runs down to about 160MB free with 816MB used. I'm guessing this is because the Sense 4 UI takes up quite a lot of memory itself. Don't worry though, this won't interfere with the speed and functions of the phone, it's perfectly normal.

    Hello
    Thank you for the reply.
    I uninstalled it.

    I tried a soft and hard reset, but still won't shut off.
