Force application to quit?

How do I force a badly behaved application to quit?

 

I have one such application and I would like to be able to terminate it without having to remove the battery from the device.

Re: Force application to quit?

From within the application itself, you can't choose the Menu key > Close or Exit?

 

If not, try Quickpull for a reboot, rather than a battery pull.

No the application is grabbing those button presses.

NVM, found it.

 

And guess what.  It hangs when trying to reset.  As did the App World when I downloaded it.

 

Oh well.  

 

/rant on

 

I wish I could throw this piece of **bleep** blackberry down the toilet because that's about all it's fit for.  Worst phone I have ever had.  RIM should be ashamed.

 

Grr

 

/rant off

 

Maybe I will break it when I pull the battery.  Here's hoping.
