    How do you force ciose an app on the 3GS so that it doesn't run in the background? I know multiple applications running in the Background can kill the battery....Thanks in advance

    Hold the power button until the Slide To Power Off screen comes, then hold home button.

    I thought this was widely known & posted, but I guess maybe not ...

    While in the app you want to force quit, press & hold the sleep/wake button until the slider appears to power the phone off. When you see that, then press and hold the home button for a few seconds until the app quits.

    Apps close when you close them. Only Apple apps continue running in the background (phone, MMS, iPod, Mail, etc...). No third party apps runs in the background.
