If it's just a matter of you having force quit an application then just restart the phone and that should automatically reset all background applications.

Hope that helps.

There are two ways to go about managing apps and data on your HTC ChaCha. You can either download an app that will help you get your data under control or you can do it over the settings.

If you want to change the saving location of apps using your settings try the following:
Go to settings> applications> manage applications and then you should see a window with four tabs that show you the location of your apps and which apps are currently running. By clicking on an app you have a series of options which allow you to better manage your app including to move it to the SD card.

Managing Data using an app:
I would actually recomend you use an app to manage your data. My favorite is a super tool box and much like the name say, it's a general tool box for everything you can want to do with your phone including battery/ memory management, data management (including moving things to your SD card) and there is even a task killer if you choose to use it. If you download the app there will be a button called App2SD and Filemanager and using both will help you move files around as you see fit, much like you already do on a normal computer.

Hope that helps

Hi i have downloaded the super tool box but phone still isnt great...i want to be able to store my photo's and music onto my sim card rather than my phone, can his be done easily, if so how? at this rate im finding my old nokia phone alot better for storage which shouldnt be the case.

Any help would be great

many thanks

Um do you mean SD Card? Because you can't save anything to a Sim card beyond numbers. It doesn't have any real memory for saving large amounts of data. If you want to use your SD card you can move files around using the file manager funtion of a super tool box (bottom left hand side of the main menu) but I think your pictures should be automattically saved to your SD card. That's where my Xperia play automatticaly saves everything.

I HAVE THE ANSWER. Make sure that ALL area codes are up to speed with the contact names. If there are extra digits, the message will display the number, not the name.
