    Hi guys, I just picked up a Droid (the original one) and have been having fun with it. Had a Blackberry before this and dumbphones before that; this seems a lot better though I'm still getting used to the interface.

    Welcome to the forums......

    I still own the Droid 1 and still appreciate it as I did when I bought it almost a year ago.

    Enjoy it and the forums.

    Great to have you here!

    Thanks for the welcome! I'm glad I got that Advanced App Killer - it's amazing how many things run on their own and stay running on there. Of course, the Blackberry wasn't much better in that regard...

    I'm pretty sure app killers do more harm than good

    How did you change it so it shuts itself down?
    Why is ATK more harmful than useful?

    Wow! Thank you! Getting rude of task killer now. Verizon Rep installed mine when I bought it. Figures.

    Never let a VZW Rep touch your Droid - No good can come of it :D

    are you saying the droid closes things you leave open or that open themselves for notifications etc on its own?? that's not what i'm seeing when i open ATK, and the droid does get slower the longer i go without killing the apps...to have ATK close itself when it closes other programs, just leave the check marked next to ATK in the kill list.
