    No, it does not but that should not matter. If you really want to close it press the back button.

    Do not worry about your apps running in the background. Android knows how to manage it's memory and it does not affect battery.

    Ok, just throwing this out there hoping I don't sound like an idiot lol:
    For those of you saying a deal breaker for the Thunderbolt was that it couldn't hold a 3G signal. It kept rolling back to 1x. I believe that is just a problem with Verizon's network in general at the moment.

    The reason I say this is because, with my android devices (Samsung Galaxy Tab, D1, and Thunderbolt), they all fall out of 3G intermittently and go back to 1x, and sometimes they lose data altogether. So as frustrating as that is, I don't blame the device, it's Verizon's network at the moment. I have heard (for those of you that don't already have 4G in your area), that this is usually a sign of Verizon doing some major work on their network which could include 4G for your area..

    which is definitely what I'm hoping for.

    409 posts of everything and everything.... Why do the moss think its helpful to lump so much together?

    It's impossible to follow this.

    I guess we will have to start new threads.

    Google is your friend people. If you have Firefox or Chrome, type: droidforums.net <then your request> and you can find pretty much anything. Instead of having 5 billion threads about the same thing I like how like things are being combined.

    No complaints from here either.



    Seems like people are pretty quick to point out all the flaws.

    I agree to a certain degree. The equivalent to the Close found on BB is your Back key.
    ONLY use your Home key to multitask, otherwise, use your back key. Android does manage tasks on its own but, when Home is used, you're also telling the OS not to shut the app down...and it won't.

    Thank you I put some serious effort into that post. He is seriously mis-informed about the bootloader and ROMs. I really dislike it when people talk smack about a phone that either A) they have no knowledge or skills on how to operate. B) they go informing others and then they don't want to buy the device because they heard these terrible things. If you want an easy phone go with an iPhone, you want customization and everything else under the sun, go with Android. I seriously think he was coming from a blackberry or a feature phone and just doesn't know how to operate the device. I am also almost 100% sure that the phone falling apart on him was due to dropping the device.

    Oh well... If people think Motorola is so much better than go for it. Thy will find out just how bogged down and buggy he system is due to blur. I want to also add that any manufacturer that goes attacking the very community that made their D1 a success after years of lagging behind needs to take a step back and reexamine things.

    Thunderbolt can have 4G turned off and switched to 3G when 4G is not needed. Download app Network Mangelow and select (CDMA auto (PRL)) to go to 3G.
