    How many times has a simple reboot or battery pull fixed your problem? Probably many times. I see it in the forums everyday.

    Kevin M thinks this might be in development, but here is my suggestion.

    Whenever you install or download something which MIGHT impair device function, a message pops up:
    " It is recommended that you restart your device after this action. Would you like to restart now?" Then select yes or no with cursor.

    No more ALT. R/Shift. Del. No more take the cover off, take the battery out, count to 10, put the battery back in, put the cover back on.

    Perhaps tied in to a task manager/system monitor which would allow you to see currently running apps and system resources allocated to them, which might help identify problems.

    More potential prompts:

    "System resources are running low. Would you like to:"
    -clear browser history?
    -clear cookies?
    -clear data cache
    -move non-essential items from device memory to media card?

    I think this would avoid many problems and much frustration.
    (If this has been posted before, my apologies for not checking first).

    Whadaya think people?

    I like the system resources idea.

    As for install. You can always use QuickPull after an installation.

    My thought was, you MIGHT learn about Quick Pull or something else eventually, all part of the learning process, learning is good etc... but maybe a positive user experience for beginners by automating this would be better.

    How's that for timing? Posted today:


    Maybe this is the answer until RIM puts something out.
