Advanced Task Killer Problems

We had our phones for 29 days and one of them refused to power on, even connected to the charger.  After taking the battery out and putting it back in, we got the phone to work again for a little bit but the same thing happened.

We took it to a Sprint repair store and they made us take off Advanced Task Killer.  They said that it caused a lot of problems with locking things up.

So far so good, but was wondering if anybody else had heard this about the Task Killer.

It is bizarre because the Sprint store we bought the phones from instructed us to install the task killer as soon as they were activated.

Hello

yes this can happen using a task killer. There are things running that if u kill them they can mess the phone up and shut it down. If u wanna use a task killer make sure anything in the app list on the task killer that u are not sure of u put on the ignore list. This way u will not accidentally kill any process the phone needs to run

I found this article to be the best of all when it comes to describing how useless task killers can be.
