    I was just thinking about how many times i've pulled my battery out for freezing, freeing up memory, bugs, deletions, installs, etc. for whatever the reason might be that you had to do it.

    How many times have you done a "Battery Pull"? (estimate guess)

    I would say at least 100 times for me within 2-3 months...

    post away..... pointless thread, but what the heck

    I didn't get the memo that we're supposed to count
    But in all honesty .. from app installs, deletions.. bugs etc
    I'm going to say at least 270 times.

    Its been 61 hrs 30 mins and 34 seconds since my last battery pull and I'm at 38 mb free. I'm finding that the builds are getting more stable for me, so I'm doing less battery pulls. Now I have reset the phone after deleting an app or theme using the prompt for a reboot, but that doesn't clear the counter in QuickLaunch. I'd say upwards of 250+ total if I had to guess though.

    i am probably averaging about 3-4 battery pulls per day and thats not including the sometimes random reboots

    therefore well over 200 times since i acquired the phone

    Probably around 40-45. I've had it since christmas. I've never had a freeze or anything, just pulled to refresh memory once in a while. I guess i'm lucky

    Ive never pulled my battery, except when had to do simswap for contacts once. I honestly think sometimes people do a battery pull when theres no need to at all. phone is updating never freezes, absolutely fine.
    What are the reasons for doing a battery pull, phone freezing i can totally understand, but if people have to do a batterypull 3-4 times a day then it must be a really bad device

    I've had my storm since first week of December and I'm going to take a wild guess and say 6 times. Yeah, I really haven't had to do it very often.

    No actual pulls. I have done at most half a dozen Quick Pulls strictly to clear memory. I've had 3 times the device reset itself (2 were trying to do video).

    I've only had my storm a couple weeks though and it's still running .75.

    when I first got the storm I was doing a battery pull at least once a day b/c of what I was reading here on the forums.

    Now I haven't done a battery pull in almost two weeks, and I haven't noticed any difference in performance. Three days ago I installed quickpull, so it does a reset for me every night at 4:30am. I don't expect to be doing anymore battery pulls
