    Is there a way to do this without jailbreaking the iphone? I'd like to run several programs in the background.

    Since Apple doesn't like people using it... We wont see it soon.

    Well according to Apple it doesn't matter what you want. Apple is all knowing and knows what's best for iphone users.

    That's certainly the way it seems.

    I can understand their stance on keeping the iphone closed like it is... the battery already sucks imagine even more people complaining. However backgrounder is the main reason i jailbreak. Well worth it.

    I don't think i could tolerate my iPhone being even slower. Perhaps when I update to the June refresh, if it's even Jailbreakable

    Instead of offering customers a decent battery, they'd rather restrict features that should be commonplace for any device being billed as a smartphone. I can't wait for the innovative FM radio feature that 4.0 will surely have. It will put cut & paste to shame!!

    I have backgrounder on my 3GS (jailbroken of course) and it works great. My phone is not slower, but it will kill the battery quicker. I have a charger everywhere though (home, work, car, etc).

    Jailbreaking was easy, but be careful if you have a newer 3GS
