    Hey guys,

    I have a **** ton of running apps, should i be deleting them from the multitask menu? (holding down the icon and pressing the red button)

    Will this save battery life?

    Anyways camped out at the ATT store at 5 in the morning yesterday and came out with an iphone 4! I do have the signal problems unfortunately :(

    Dunno...

    Why don't you find out and then let us know in a couple of weeks?

    those aren't running apps (for the most part), they are recently used apps.

    not many apps are running the background'ing api at the moment, so don't worry about them.. i.e., your calculator or safari isnt actually "running" in the background. Pandora would be, iPod..not app store or fandango.

    Unless you have several apps downloading/streaming music in the background, you should be fine.

    As Steve Jobs said...

    Correct. It shouldn't make a big difference at the moment ;)
