How to Close Programs on the myTouch 4G


The Android operating system on your myTouch 4G handles the termination of programs and applications in a manner that is different than what you might be used to with your computer’s operating system. When you press the “Home” or “Back” button on the bottom of your phone to close a program, that program actually remains open in the background until your myTouch 4G requires the memory that it is using for a different task. If a program is malfunctioning or causing substantial battery drain, however, you can manually close the program yourself.


  • Press a button on your myTouch 4G to wake the phone, and then follow the on-screen prompt to unlock the screen.
