    Hi
    i have noticed that when i finish a call or when i unlock the phone sometimes the timer circle appears in the middle of the screen and i can see the home screen appearing in the background, i have a task killer installed but its not set to stop any of the android phone services, just wondered if anyone else gets this :thinking:, its a pain as you have to wait for stuff to load before you can use the phone :mad:

    Never had that on my phone, there again i haven't got a task killer.
    Perhaps it is killing tasks automatically, try using the phone with it uninstalled.

    Sounds like it is re-launching sense. I get this if I unlock the phone before sesne has fully loaded.

    Had something similar myself in my first week when I ran a task killer. Not happened since I removed it and found the phone runs no better or worse without it.

    It is

    I just mean when I turn my phone on and the lock screen is there, if I unlock it as soon as it appears, it has loading afterwards as sense hasn't yet loaded.

    FYI: Android is smart enough at task management that it doesn't need a task killer.
