    It isn't bad for the phone. It is, however, mostly pointless.

    I do not reset my phone unless an app install / uninstall forces
    it to.

    Pending which phone you have and how many apps you have. I really only do it when I notice my phone slowing up, which is about every 4 days or so. Its not pointless it adds memory that is trickled away during use.

    I run a free app called QuickPull that simulates a battery pull once daily.

    Every day. At least once. And +1 on the QuickPull app.

    I've had a BB for about a month now and I've done a battery pull maybe three times since I've owned it.

    I dont do it unless my phone is acting strangely; otherwise I see no need to do it unless I am in dire need of more memory.

    I do it when I notice my memory drops at least 10MB.

    I'm with several others I only do it if I'm having issues on the BB. However on earlier builds of the storm os I did pulls daily, bit after os 4.7.0.151 that was no longer necessary.

    I can't recall ever doing an actual battery pull on my Tour. Only time I've restarted it is when an app requires it.

    I also use QuickPull and have it set for once a week (Sunday night). The only other time I do a battery pull (using QuickPull) is if I install an app that requires it; soft reset usually takes care of any OS glitches (hasn't happened on my Tour, used to happen on my 8830).

    for the people who do it weekly:
    whats the point in doing it every week unless you notice your blackberry lagging?

    Only when something seems odd with my BlackBerry, which for me has been like - what, maybe 5 times this past year?

    I usually clear my cache and memory resources as I go along, so my cheepo 8330 hasn't seemed laggy, been pretty happy with it.
    Do need to upgrade sometime soon though.
