    What apps are always open in the background on the Storm? When I press and hold down the blackberry key these are the apps that are always showing: Messages, Phone, Home Screen, Blackberry Messenger, BerryAddon, Browser.

    I can not seem to close the browser down. It does not seem right that the browser should always be running in the background.

    I'm not sure I am going to keep BerryAddon. It always runs in the background and I'm not sure it provides me with that much extra benefit. Does anyone else have experience using this?

    Thanks for a wonderful forum.

    the browser will never stop running in the background. the apps that are always running will not affect your memory or anything.

    Also, some third party apps are always running. I've noticed that "Add to Contact" and "Add Number As" are always running.

    If anybody uses Live app, do you guys notice "Live Search" starting on its own and displaying "Please ensure your wireless connection is turned on and restart Live Search" even though it was closed through the menu last time it was opened?

    "Add to Number As" and "Add to Contact" are not applications.... Am I wrong?

    It depends on what applications you have. I know, for me, TweetGenius is always running among the standard broswer, bbm, phone, and messages. Also, I use wallpaper shuffle, so when it on, its always on

    Your browser is always open. The apps you can't close are:

    phone, messages, browser, blackberry messenger (if installed) and home screen

    hope this helps

    I noticed Google Voice, should you have it installed, will not close even if you tell it to. So I deleted it.

    It has to stay open to do what it is supposed to do. If you don't have/use Google Voice then yes, you should delete it.
