    Has anyone noticed that QuickPull doesn't free up any memory when used? It works perfectly as far as rebooting and the scheduling, but it does not actually free up any memory. On my 8900, it would free up memory every time I ran it.

    Seeking advice/help.

    Installed Quick Pull on my two day old 9700, once installed and after setting permissions it does not work, when push on Quick Pull app it just does not respond or do anything at all? Im wondering if perhaps by acident i never set permissions correctly, i have used Quick Pull on all my other devices and never had a problem.

    Tried deleting Quick Pull from My World but when re install just same happens again...nothing.

    Any advice much appreciated lads.

    i had this same issue... what you need to do is go into options> applications> 3rd party apps> find quickpull> menu> permissions> change all permissions to deny...> menu> save> exit out of options. Do a REAL battery pull

    once the device is back up, do the same as above but instead change all permissions back to allow> menu> save... this should solve you issue

    I did all the tricks but Quickpull never worked for me, even the changing permissions, etc. I finally deleted it. Alt shift delete for the win, indeed.

    I have quickpull free and I schedule it for a reboot every night around 3am. Wake up I'm set to go.

    it didn't work for me when i installed it.
    but later i managed to make it work by doing a manual permission change to all allow, save and reset the phone.

    the reason you're not seeing more free memory after a reboot is because the 9700 has much better memory management, so there is less memory leakage.

    Its a nice app to have considering I have to take it out of the case to do a pull. Hit the button and BAM!! Simulated batt pull...

    Stupid question....I've tried to do the alt shift delete with no luck....do u hit the alt, then hold the shift and delete at the same time? Or do u have to press all three at once? I'm not that coordinated I'm afraid.....

    The 9700 does have better memory mangement, but when I uninstalled QP Free I gained 14 MB's. That makes no sense. I did a clean install and will try it for a week or two.

    You're not alone! I practiced several times until I found what works for me...I lay the phone on a flat surface instead of try to hold it and do it.
    You'll get it. Use your left hand for the alt and the the right for the shift delete.

    I don't like pulling the battery because I don't want to open and close the battery door needlessly. It's such a perfectly fitting door that I don't want to ruin it by breaking something.

    Also....if you can't get your QuickPull to work properly (I couldn't get mine to work so I ultimately just gave up) Meterberry has a reset option.

    All that being said....I have found with my phone that battery pulls or resets are absolutely unnecessary with this phone. Memory management is stellar. Coming from the 9000 and the memory problems I had with it, I was nervous about not being able to use QuickPull. Not a big deal - don't need it at all.

    That is my experience - others may be experiencing something else.

    isn't this more of a soft reset?

    Personally, I avoid QuickPull but that's just me. Besides I have QuickLaunch which includes a reboot option as well. But most of the time I prefer the simple three finger keyboard salute that's native to the phone.
    I have QuickLaunch, and I see that setting up a hotkey for "Reboot" is easier than Alt-RShift-Del every time. But I still think I want something that automatically restarts for me once a day, and QuickPull Free should do that on a schedule, right?
    Even if the 9700 has good memory management, there are other reasons for doing a reboot once a day. First, people don't realize how many apps they leave opening (draining RAM) until they view "Switch Application". Sure, you can manually close them down, but here's hoping that OS 6.0 has a better task manager that allows you to close things without going all the way into each program/app.

    Second, I encounter this weird bug every once in awhile where my data connection doesn't work and the phone needs to be "refreshed". Once I reboot, everything is perfect again.

    Just tried to schedule a restart, and it didn't work. It said "Something went wrong. Check Device Log for Details" Help?

    I never could get it to work right. It really jammed up my 9700, and I wound up deleting it.

    Sorry if the question has been answered before but does "alt + shift + del" have the same effect as a real battery pull?
