Task killers are completely unnecessary on an Android smartphone.

There's actually no need for task killers but I also use them because I don't want Apps run in background if I rarely use them. Rarely like only every 3 days.
I also always kill the bluetooth and gtalk stuff since I never use it.
i dont use them either,just a thought can i uninstall google voice as we dont get to use it in the uk?
I use it. If my phone lags, I hit the task killer widget and it says something like "4 apps killed 45M memory available". Once in a while it says something like "85M memory available." Weird.
Come here little sheep; I have a nice juicy apple for you!

Without a task killer, I can get 48 to 72 hours of up time before my phone starts getting progressively more buggy and laggy. It lags, the touch screen bugs out, and I have strange things happen during calls (static or people can't hear me). With a task killer I can get 150 or more hours of up time from the phone before it starts to have issues.
People can repeat that it doesn't help until they are blue in the face, but the fact remains when my N1 gets laggy, I load up task killer and hit the button, my phone runs 100% better. Go ahead and tell me it doesn't work, but I've seen it first hand. It does.
You really should get a task killer where you can select specific apps, so that you don't close anything important. But beyond that... there is no danger. How could you say it does not help?
Tried not using it and my battery is definitely running out faster then when I used it
