    1. i think i have an app (and i think i know which one it is) that's updating w/o my permission and setting the phone to reset.
    this is unacceptable.

    i checked in the setting of that app and there's nothing relevant there.

    is there a global option somewhere to not let apps update w/o asking me first?

    2. the phone is getting sporadically VERY slow and unresponsive.

    is there a "task manager" kinda thing so i can find what the culprit is taking up all the resources?

    thank you.

    Apps cannot update themselves without permission.

    If you suspect a certain app, try deleting it and see what happens.

    2. If you have an OS 7.1 phone you can download BlackBerry Application Resource Monitor which will do exactly what you want.

    If you have zeroed in on a suspect app, you can try denying it internet and WiFi permissions.

    Re: task manager, you haven't specified your phone model, but phones running OS 7.1 (all models, I believe?) have such a feature, called Application Resource Monitor.
