    1. It is starting for a reason - it is needed by handcent
    2. Just because it is started does not mean it is using battery. It is just sitting in memory.
    3. Stop using task killer and your battery life will improve

    You'll only lose MMS capabilities. I don't send hardly any MMS messages, so I don't care.

    I send lots of pics... so that doesnt work for me. i wonder if I can just hide the app from the app drawer but still have it function.
