    Does any of this make my phone less useful?
    I have to keep it for another two years.
    Not at all. I have no intention of changing to anything else.

    It's a file manager. Use it to manage Android apps. Find it in AppWorld

    OK I installed Ghost Commander and found lots of left over android app folders on my sd card. I deleted the ones that go with apps I have already deleted. I left the other android named folders on the phone and the card.
    I see lots of android wallpaper files and I don't have any wallpaper app on my phone. I used to...so Im wondering if I can get rid of them too....

    Is it more impt to look at the onboard stuff? rather than the card?

    No, leave the rest. Here's a way to use Ghost Commander to isolate a rogue Android app. This is from a post from CB user d3rd. http://forums.crackberry.com/bb10-le...ml#post8982861

    Thanks Underway. In the 29th minute of a 30 minute battery pull. Everything is cooled down now and I will put the battery back in and start up again.

    I wonder if my new wifi router/AP is to blame tonight for the running hot?

    The only reason I can't see that could be related to your router would be signal strength. Either your device connects or it doesn't, but poor signal will make the device work harder.

    So took battery out for 30 mins.
    When I put it back in it was at 27C. Immediately got a phone call. After 8 minutes on phone....back to 37C
    Gonna let it sit ON unused for another 10 and see if it starts to drop.

    Did the trick someone mentioned in the thread. System only at 5.something., then 3 then 4 then 7 so no where near 20% or higher.

    Im sitting next to the router /AP.
    Excellent signal strength. I moved the device upstairs in my family room.

    OK since being off the call, temp has dropped to 32C. so it might return to normal now.

    Looks like the 30 minute battery pull did the trick! Thanks for the advice Underway!!!

    You can certainly expect a lithium-ion battery to get warm when using it. The thing is that it should cool when sitting unused.

    I have to keep it for another two years.
    (sniff) Mine is a week plus a day old! And turning off wifi, I finally got Link to see the damn thing and backed it up. Then I synced contacts and calendar and wound up with duplicates up the wazoo in each. Cleaned them up, I think and am backing up again and will try another sync with the device as LEAD. I mean, really, I only want to pay Real Estate taxes once in April and again in Oct, not 6 times in each. Now birthdays I wouldn't mind celebrating multiple times.

    On a serious note, I also once got my contacts doubled and it was a serious pain in the arse.

    So, I wonder if I will be able to sideload the BBM app on my PlayBook so I can have a it there without going through Bridge. And would that get the groups on there?

    Inquiring minds want to know......

    Is it probably a good thing I don't have hundreds of friends or even contacts. As is, there were about 30 dupes and in some cases, triplicates. Calendar items were sometimes 5 or 6 copies associated with a variety of emails and dupes on some emails.

    But until I could backup I was not willing to entertain loading a 10.2x leak. Now I might be willing. Although, I read that sometimes restores on new OS's can be a problem or not work at all??? Is that true? Or not being able to go back between OS and their backups?

    There is sometimes a problem with restoring backups, but it seems to be getting better. It's still hit or miss though. I generally (all twice) skip the restore.

    I restore. Done it twice. It worked as long as you are moving up in the version numbers.

    Damn! They say its out in New Zealand and Asia. But so far, not in the US. Wonder if they are staggering the rollout???

    I guess they are reporting that the Apple link in the itunes store is live for BBM.
    So apple users are getting it first after all.

    But I don't see it on my ipad. So I think that's not true either.

    EDIT: It's just a preview of the link. Must be they are going to wait till tomorrow like they said.
    Wish Google would hurry up.
