    Hi everyone
    I was wondering how often should I simulate a battery pull with Quick Pull.

    I was thinking about 1 a week?

    Would that be about right?

    Can you perform this too often?

    Thoughts?

    I only do a battery pull if/when my Bold locks up and when I notice my device memory getting low which rarely happens anymore. If you want to, setup a schedule for QuickPull if it's that big of a deal for you. No, you cannot do a battery pull too often.

    This is a pet peeve of mine because people keep talking about
    the battery pull as if it is necessary, a part of normal maintenance
    or some sort of magic bullet. This is total crap.

    QuickPull (scheduling or not) is a waste of time and resources.
    Forget battery pulls or resets. They are unnecessary unless as
    Tronxy stated the phone locks up. Beyond that they are useless.

    I have a Pearl that has not been reset in any way in over 2
    months, a Curve that has not been reset in over 5 months and
    a recently acquired Bold that I will not be resetting.

    I do disagree with Tronxy on one point. Yes you can pull the
    battery too much. Any powered device that undergoes
    continual and abrupt power offs will suffer as a result.
    Do you just unplug your TV when going to bed.
    No , you don't. What about your car? Do you lift
    the hood and disconnect the battery. Of course not.
    Your phone is no different.

    Well, yea. I should have elaborated on my suggestion that it is not harmful if you were to only do it once a week. Any ***** that performs multiple battery pulls every day deserves to have their device get messed up.

    In the proper manner it is always helpful switch a full off before conducting any batter pull at all .That should be the safest procedure.

    My mother always said that if I did it too often I would go blind......

    But there is nothing wrong with a daily battery pull. Someday all these mem leaks will be corrected so pulls aren't necessary.

    Quickpull won't hurt it. Physical battery pulls puts some extra wear and tear on the hardware, though. As mentioned above, you really should no have to do this as part of maintenance. Properly close your apps and enjoy the phone.

    Only do it when needed. Memory loss, freeze up, things like that.

    I would say it's not necessary unless your phone absolutely needs it (freezing, lagging, low memory). This is one of the blackberry cons that upsets me. But whatever, I still love my blackberry.. hahaha.
