    i've noticed this too, and i think its because the system itself is using the apps. i've mainly seen settings, alarm clock, voice search, clock, and corp cal constantly running. for obvious reasons some apps will keep running for me (clock, alarm clock), but the others (settings, voice search, corp cal) i'm not sure why they're running since i dont use them, but apparently the system needs them running (maybe shared resource data?)

    Volt you can only remove the stock apps if you root. after you've done some readin up i'm sure at some point you'll go for it just to get rid of that corporate calendar and visual voicemail app lol

    Thanks for the reply guys. I've had the droid for 5 days and i'm still learning how this thing works (been 5 years since i've had a cell phone so i'm a cell phone virgin again lol). So i guess i really don't have to worry then about battery life then if that's the case.

    As far as rooting go how does that work? i've heard about it but just wasn't sure if its something i should do or not since i'm on a phone plan with Verizon. Will this void warranty? I just really want to get rid some these apps that i find useless (for me anyways).

    If getting rid of apps is the only reason you want to root, don't bother. There are other benefits (WiFi tethering, over/underclocking, etc), but you really should get used to the phone for a few weeks first and learn what it can do stock. Then, grasshopper, you will be ready to root the phone :).

    OP you've got the right idea. Keep playing with the phone and see exactly what you want it to do. I too would advise against rooting if you only want to delete apps.... but there are many other benefits to rooting. Just read up on it and see where it leads ya!

    Rooted or not, your Droid can do a lot.
