    App Killer Needed

    I've had my D3 now for a few days and know that it comes with all these apps already preloaded. What is the best thing to use for killing apps? The D3 comes with Task Manager installed to auto-end apps which seems to help, but there are certain apps that still continue to run. I've installed the free Advanced Task Killer app, even with setting this app to kill certain apps, they restart themselves. What is the best app killer for the D3?

    Certain apps will continue to restart themselves no matter how often you kill them. You will just eat your battery if you configure a task killer.
    The best way to fix this is with root, (and remove the bloatware) and I think we are all waiting for this.

    It still blows my mind that they would install bloatware that can't be removed that constantly runs. Especially where battery life in smartphones is such a big selling point for many people.

    Makes less than zero sense.

    The absence of a shady 80s business man in me always forgets things like this. haha

    Task killers shouldn't be needed. Android handles it well.

    The bloatware is annoying but just because it is loaded and ready in memory doesn't mean that it is using battery power.
    Do you like uninstallable bloatware?
    It takes about 5 minutes to complain and it's kinda fun. Let's not be complacent!
    Contact Verizon (anonymous w/ fake name if you like)
    Chat/Email/Call Motorola (anonymous if you like)
