iOS 4 needs at least one app open?

    I ALWAYS close my apps as soon as I'm done using them, except for Messages (I'm basically constantly texting, so it always stays open).

    However, whenever I close Messages (the only app open), my iPhone 4 locks up. It's stuck on the graphic of the multitasking dock open (as if I had double tapped the Home button), but nothing is open in there. Hitting the Home button, tapping the screen, even hitting the Sleep/Wake button do nothing.

    The only thing I can do is wait for approximately a minute for it to come back to life, or force a reboot by holding the Sleep/Wake button down for a few seconds.

    Can anyone else test this out and see if it happens to them as well?

    Nope, sounds like an issue for your device. Have you tried restoring as a new device?

    closing all apps doesn't cause my phone to crash, so it's deinitly strange.

    a restore might be in order.

    Interesting, I'll have to try that.

    I set it up as a new phone when coming from my 3G, I just imported contacts and such.
