    I pull the battery once per day not because I need to but because I have two batteries and alternate them pretty much daily.

    I'd say once every 2 weeks - a month. (That includes any app updates that requires a reboot, I don't pull the battery every month.)

    Once every couple months and I'm a heavy user... Did it for first time this summer today, I think. I don't think I'm missing out on performance... Works much better than my previous two BB phones.

    I usually do a battery pull once per week, but I just went almost two weeks and had only lost about 60mb of memory.

    agree with a bunch of folks here. I am running .580 and it seems too have become a better device as a result. I am only pulling the battery once a week and that's when I change my battery every Sunday.

    The question is... is it necessary to do a regular battery pull? I can understand it if the phone has froze, or a problematic app is playing up. But pulling the battery for pulling's sake!!!!

    Its great, I think many of us can agree that we used to have to pull the battery out daily. I don't even hear it as much now from people with blackberries.

    used to be daily, because I was getting the spinning clock often. But ever since I've upgraded to the latest OS 7.1 .580 build I haven't had to. I believe the new Application Resource Monitor is handling things very well.

    I installed it about a month ago and haven't battery pulled since. Its the most stable OS by far.

    It seems that I do it less and less these days. I used to do it twice a day before due to various issues.

    The OS has gotten very functional.

    Almost never I must say. I soft reboot will often do the trick. I do a battery pull only to change my SIM card when I fly to another country

    Thats great, the software has improved over time where we don't need these pulls. I don't even remember why I did pulls, probably freezes and messages/emails not arriving.

    Never. I only restart when I uninstall apps or anything else that requires me to. And what's great is that a reboot takes my 9930 literally 60 seconds! Quite an improvement over 10 mins on my Tour 9630 haha!
    Exactly this but I had a Curve 8520 and now a 9320.

    I do a soft reset once a week but with .580 I only need to do a battery pull twice a month. That's just me though.

    You shouldn't have to do a battery pull. I've never had to do one.

    Sometimes the device can be sluggish or not receive messages, battery pull fixes it.

    When the phone locks up, about once every 6 weeks. Its usually a freebie I couldn't resist.
    Otherwise a simple alt+shift+del works just fine since its the same as a battery pull.

    Maybe once a week if the device gets sluggish, it depends. Sometimes I can go a week or more.

    Do those have the same effect as a manual battery pull?

    My phone seems to have periods every few months where I'll need to pull the battery every day and then it's fine for awhile. Have to say since I downloaded the latest Rogers update (I'm on Virgin) it has been amazing and no battery pulls .... Yet

    Once every 2 weeks-month as well. Sometimes it freezes, but this is not inlcuding app install/delete because I just have it restart I don't pull it.
