Well, the thread title is a little mis-leading. But, it seems whenever I recieve a text message ( i am only using ChompSMS as well!) then Sprint Navigation and Messages (the native app) will be running in my Task Manager directly after. I understand that the device being Linux and not WinMo that multi-tasking does not deplete battery or performance, it is just VERY annoying that my Sprint HTC Hero is running apps on its own, and I would like to know why. Thank you, and I appreciate your guy's time.
