Question about background apps

Greeting all.  So far I've had my atrix for 24 hours and I love it.  I currently looking for a case for it since the ATT store only had the $50 case.  I've download a few apps and some games so I'm doing good so far.   I do have a couple of questions though.  I've got the app Task Killer and when I go into it there are programs running that I didn't start.  Like ATT Navigator; which I don't use and never tried to use.  I ended the task and the GPS thingy is turned off so I'm a little confused.  I don't want the "push" applications I guess they're called working unless I touch them.  Suggestions?

Re: Question about background apps

do you have DSL service in your home? Are you utilizing wi-fi at home so to get the full usage of your device data service?

Yeah I use WiFi at the house quite a bit...if I could remember the password to the one at work I'd use it at work too.

Yep, just before the recent updates in our area I was on Edge and used wifi extensively. Now theres faster service in the area but I still use wifi to cut the amount of actual data pushed via att.

I dont tap into work, just because I just dont. Funny thing jappened locally. A guy tapped intohis companys wifi while on his personal laptop. Needless to say.. All the joocy sites he visited got captured and logged....lol..it was funny.
