Finally got the phone call advising me that I'd signed-up and I could stop it if I wanted.

In reply to a post by RobertoS:
There's a chap bitched about having to use his BT line account login instead of his BT broadband one. I don't think he quite grasped the concept tongue.

That was quite special. I don't think he had the faintest clue that BT Smart Talk is a BT Retail telephony service, not anything to do with BT Broadband or any other ISP.

That's what the "I don't think he quite grasped the concept" was about smile.

Anyway, I have mine set up now. But once you start it, (on Android), there doesn't seem to be any way to close it, other than through a "Force Close" through the Apps manager.

That's daarrft!

Huh, maybe they designed for iPhone first and then Android. On iOS killing an app is as simple as double tapping home button.

Do you really mean it kills it completely?

A single press of the Home button on my Galaxy SIII disappears any app, but leaves it open and suspended in the background. A long press of the Home button brings up thumbnails of those open ones and a sideswipe of any one of them gets rid of it completely.

This one, even after sideswiping it away, leave a handset icon at the top left in the notification bar. You can only get rid of that with a Force Close from the Apps Manager.

Double tap on iphone and then hold icon to see - sign and you can close it.
Android its via the app manager.

Both are basically force close

This is the way apps work. It's the same on Win 8 - you can't exit them.

Android apps normally you sideswipe them off the thumbnail screen as I described. Or tap the thumbnail to reactivate.
