    Ok, since I dont actually have an iPhone yet, this may seem like a pretty simple question for you guys/girls! I know the iphone can't have multiple apps running, but does that include playing music as well?

    IE if I'm running an app, can I run the "ipod" app as well? or is that a no go?

    The iPod app is the only one with true backgrounding. You can run iTunes behind virtually anything.

    iPod and iTunes are different apps. And yes, you can play music while working on different apps / browsing the internet.

    Btw, iTunes is a huge app.... well on the computer at least.

    Safari and Mail run the background as well ;)

    this probably goes w/o saying but with backgrounder you can run any app in the background... buuut you'd need to jailbreak to use that feature.

    kills battery life though
