    What exactly is a battery pull. Pros? are there any cons?

    how often do you guys turn off your bb completely? mine has been on for weeks without a full powerdown--just wondering if that is detrimental

    no cons - as long as the device is working fine no need to pull it.

    The answer to your first question is a battery pull is the time honored reboot to fix or resolve minor issues in event of a malfunction. They are the manual recommended cure for many of the things that can go wrong.

    BK is absolutely right. Anytime you're BB doesn't act exactly right, pulling the battery almost always fixes it.
    And, as far as turning off your BB, it doesn't matter if you do or dont. When I first got mine the girl at verizon said I needed to turn it off for atleast an hour every night but I quickly found out that's unnecessary.

    I do it about every three or four days, just take out the battery for 10 seconds or so and re-boot it. Also idk how much you text but if your SMS in and outboxes are full deleting them occasionally also helps if you're having speed issues
