yahoo messanger app

anyone using yahoo messanger. do me a favor. make sure your logged out, then go into running applications and see if its still  running in there. i havent used it in like a month and sure enough every time i reboot my phone its in there running. went and checked and im not even logged in. yet its still there running. force stopping it fixes it for a while until you reboot/restart your phone. then its there yet again. havent noticed anyone posting about it on the app market so dunno if its just my phone or if no one has really noticed it. will probably uninstall it and reinstall it and see if that fixes it or not in a few days once i get some feedback from either the dev or people in here.

either way thanks

Is that App(Yahoo Messenger ) you downloaded from the Market or that was a default app?. I would say uninstall and re-install the app and check. let me know.

Thanks.

the one downloaded from the market. didnt know we had a default messanger app. i think its more of a app issue than anything. now that i think about it, i noticed it before but had to do a FR..then reloaded the app back. just didnt pay much attention to it until recently. i'll keep you guys informed either way. if nothing gets figured out i might just uninstall it for good. if its running in the background constantly i'll most likely get more battey life once its gone. kinda weird that GB isnt shutting it down since its not being used yet it will shut down sense lol.

Before you do Factory Reset, I would suggest you to un-install and re-install the app and check if that fix the issue.

Yahoo did that to me as well.  I think it may be the way the app is developed.  I've downloaded a number of apps that I "kill" because I'm not using them and then 30 minutes later they are alive and well sucking up memory and battery life.  It got kind of irritating so I just uninstalled it.  If anyone on my buddy list needs to talk to me that bad they should have my number and can call/text me.

the only time it would start back up for me was when i restarted or booted the phone. aside from that once i force closed it, it would stay gone. i havent really took the time to see how much my battery improved since its gone yet. another app is killing off my battery now (drag racing)...probably cuz i wont stop playing it lol.

weird part is i go into the running apps section here and there and never noticed yahoo in there until one of the last updates it had.
