    Stopping Programs

    Noticed there's no option for closing apps rather than just backgrounding them. Any suggestions on currently available market app that could help with that? Looks like there are a couple of program/task manager apps out there already. Hope there will be a 3G watcher or monitor to measure 3G useage. Certainly don't want a mammoth $100 extra bill the first month

    Did you try and download Verizons My Verizon app, that monitors your data usage.

    I agree with Quicksilver for the data app/widget and try ATK (Advanced Task Killer) to kill the app?

    Thanks guys both work like a charm. I have a lot to learn being so far behind on the Android crowd.

    There has to be a way to kill/stop apps with out using a task killer. There is a way with all android phones in the settings, is that option not available?

    Pretty simple....there's no need to stop them. If the system needs resources it'll stop the apps it needs to gain back what resources are needed.

    Settings->applications->manage applications. click on your application, click on force close. same as with the phones. No task killer app needed.

    While true... there is something sexy about selecting all the things you do not want running and hitting KILL ALL.

    I paid for ATK back before I realized I really did not "need" it or it was a bad idea

    It does work on the Xoom just FYI
