    Verizon knows nothing about their own phones. You don't need a task killer, you need to find out why it's slow. Maybe you have a ton of big apps running in the background. Maybe you don't use them.

    The best task killer is in the Android settings menu, manage applications, running...

    There is like a hundred posts why you don't need a task killer and how it will actually slow you down more....even google the guys who made the os says its not a good idea...Android is designed to kill its own tasks.... Did you install anti virus that will slow your system down alot she is un needed...

    If your phone is running slow and being sluggish, then there is an app not performing correctly. Find it and delete. You can find a replacement app on the market to do the same job as the one you deleted. The phone is not running slow due to low memory.

    The android os will keep memory full and will remove sleeping apps from memory as it needs memory. If you task kill apps, either the same or other apps will be put back into memory by the OS. Apps in memory do not use cpu cycles or power. It takes the same amount of power to keep an app in memory as it does to have open memory - none. Find the app(s) that are not running correctly and get rid of them.

    How does task killers slow your phone? I have advanced task killer and saved me many times from slowing down. Having a couple apps running in the background that I didn't need running at the time or exiting out an app and it didn't close I just hit my little green guy and he kills it all and my phone runs smoother.

    Im surprised this hasnt been posted before, but Task Killers wont even work with Froyo. The mechanism used by task killers to kill tasks was taken out in froyo, so kill all you want and the running apps will return.
