    CPU problem: "checkin services" ?!

    Lately I have noticed that my phone has been getting slower. Today I downloaded an app called CPU Usage. It says that a service called "Checkin Service" uses 10% of my CPU at all times! It never stops! This of course slows down my phone drastically!

    What can I do? Could not find much info on this anywhere..

    Hope someone can help me out a bit!

    seems like it is just part of your phone checking in on apps running and whats going on.
    10% of your CPU is like 100mghz, that is NOT alot of CPU. there is something else going on if in fact your phone is slowing down.
    what launcher are you using? are you rooted? 2.1 or 2.2? more details please

    IIRC, 'check-in' service corresponds to the news/weather widget.

    Hmm... sure? Nothing happens to the CPU usage if I delete the widget..

    Thanks for answering. I'm totally stock: no root, 2.1.

    How do I go about to check what's slowing my N1 down? No other way than deleting apps one-by-one?

    Thanks!

    I was incorrect above..checkin service is android app version checker (and firmware checker)..it should run infrequently, not constantly.
