    Excellent! Oh one more thing to make note of if you would. The apps that you ARE killing. Would like to know which they are and if they are known to be problem children.

    It's OK for your Droid to be different. Just be supportive and reassuring and it will do just fine. It's when you or other people point at it or mock it for being different is when its' feelings get hurt. Just show it unconditional love regardless of its' differences and it will in turn reciprocate that love and loyalty.

    i had task killers installed up until a month ago. i have unistalled them without any bad effects of shorter battery life.. phone is just as fast as ever.. so IMO they are not needed.. but they will not hurt the Phone

    What will hurt the phone? Overclocking to excess, dropping it, dropping something on it, lasers, sharks...

    I would have been more than happy to experiment and share my results but it looks like 2.1 has eaten my phone. After several calls to HTC it looks like I need to set my phone back to factory defaults. ---> this is me quickly going from Droid spokesperson to wishing I had an iphone... Oh, who are we kidding, issues aside the Droid software is still superior in every way. ; ) My phone is completely non-functional though after the update. No apps will run and the lock screen sometimes won't even open. I'm gonna be brave and bump back to factory and see if that fixes the problem. Will let people know.
