    Hey guys!

    I bought my first Android based cell and had a couple of questions.

    1. I'm finding that my apps don't shut down even though I force quit the app. I have even rebooted the phone, but believe it or not, my music app (pre-loaded on MyTouch 3G) started playing again. Is this a common thing with Android? Is there a patch/update that I need to apply?

    2. I know hackers are now writing up virues that attack cell phones; is there an that will secure the phone from hacks?

    You waited a whole 20 minutes? Impatient little bastard, aren't ya? :)

    There is an anti-virus app: Lookout

    As to the music not shutting down: no idea. My problem is the reverse: I'd like apps to run in the background, but most don't...

    I haven't had either of these problems. Have you installed any apps? if so, uninstall them one by one until you figure out which one is causing problems. Also, you could try a factory reset and try it without any apps, to see if it is some sort of glitch. Best of luck to you!

    Thank you for the feedback!

    I think I have the music app figured out. I cleared the cache and and data under application management for Music (v4). I honestly thought my phone was possessed.

    I'll definitely keep an eye out for some type of AVS for my phone.

    Have a good weekend, everyone! :)
