    Starting at 12:00am Will kick off National Pull your Battery Day.

    So if you have never Pull your Battery. Do it. I might speed up your blackberry or maybe help clean up some lag you may be having but your a newbie and not really sure how to fix it....

    For use hardcore Guru's we will hopefully achieve better satisfactory or knowing we rebooted our phones and they will run allot better from now on....
    (We all know we will have to do battery pulls again and again) but let's says it's a all out spring clean Reboot of our Blackberries!!!!!!

    So who's with me
    I am with you buddy. Great idea.

    Oops, I totally misread that. I thought it said "Pull your goalie day".

    Oh well. I guess I can pull the battery too. ;-)

    Man, I pull this thing constantly. Mostly cuz I'm always trying new junk and deciding I don't want it.

    I'm wondering what Patrick meant by all that jazz about it being harmful. Surely if it was, we'd need National Send Your Berry Back To RIM For Service Day, right?

    I recently did the search for Patrick's comments about battery pulls, and then had a conversation with CB friends about them. While I may not be convinced that one should never pull one's battery, I have been experimenting with memory management without bat pulls since my upgrade to .69.

    I have relaxed a little, and only check free memory once a day - in the morning when I get up. I have noticed that my free memory after clearing my browser cache, running the memory cleaner utility, and doing a reset is right at 27.3 mb. Over a 24 hour period, I've found my free mem will drop between 2 and 5 mb - usually closer to 2 mb with .69. I do the above steps each morning and forget about memory.

    I have found that my method works very well for me. So far I have not had any issues with free memory because my berry is very consistent with how much it drops each day. It is nice not to worry so much about it. I am not going to say to never pull your battery because there are times that you have to pull it - like when your device locks up or is running slow. I don't think a battery pull hurts anything at all and it will help someone who doesn't do routine maintenance like I do. However mine hasn't locked up since my upgrade.

    That's my 0.02 cents.

    ok just pulled out...the battery that is. I have soft reset but did the battery pull to celebrate.

    Just incase your wondering where to get soft reset at here you go geek and proud - BlackBerry Software. Beats pulling the battery out everytime. You can download it OTA as well.
