- Let's see, an app to simulate a battery pull so you can free up memory (while
consuming memory on it's own) or a free keystroke option that does the same
without the memory footprint.
Seems a no brainer to me. Ditch QuickPull.
And while papped is correct, it is almost ALWAYS unnecessary to
schedule a battery pull.10-12-10 07:59 PM
- Unless someone has an OtterBox or something, I see no reason why not to just pull the battery. It takes the same amount of time to boot up, and rather than "simulating" anything, it actually gives the capacitors and such time to fully discharge. Actually refreshing the device.
But I have to agree that I really don't see a need for this unless an application hangs, after installation/deletion of an application, or there is a problem with an app. Constant reboots for no apparent reason other than to just do it, doesn't make sense to me. Especially with newer devices. IMO.10-13-10 08:05 AM
Nothing at all will be gained by doing this.10-13-10 09:05 AM
- But then, if you have an old 8100 Pearl like me, that keystroke combination does absolutely nothing. Probably because there is no dedicated "right-shift". Only a single "shift" key (which does happen to be to the right of center).

- Scheduled resets are difficult (at best) if you have your BB password enabled. The app will not auto perform the reset while the unit is locked so it is just as easy to do a manual Alt-Shift-Del or a battery pull.
I also perform considerably less resets with my Bold 9650 as it just does not lose memory like my Tour did.10-13-10 11:42 AM
Thanks again for the 'Alt-Shift-Del(2)' - now I can loose some excess app baggage!10-14-10 01:05 PM
- When I had the 8100s I had to reset 3 or more times a day. When I had my first 8130, I would just remove the cover and yank the battery but noticed after a while that the battery door was getting a bit loose. When I got another 8130, I put it in an otterbox which made pulling the battery a huge pain. Softreset was great and I used quick pull as well despite running into problems with both when trying to reset when my memory hit 0 bytes. Since having a 9700 though I rarely ever reset (and only do from old 8130 habits) and just punch the keys instead of a program.
Lastly, in App World, part of QuickPull's description says: "QuickPull has become the "must have" utility of every BlackBerry user." That's really sad and a big plus for the iPhone. Especially since bb is a business tool and iPhone is really just a toy. Imagine xbox vs ps3 and one of the units needed to be constantly reset in the middle of using. So nice not having to reset the 9700.

- I agree with furballz just pull the battery out its not that big a deal. Had my bold for a couple months and the only times I've pulled the battery was after I did an OS upgrade. As for a program that simulates you pulling the battery I don't really see the point.
