Petition for allowing unsigned apps to run in the background

Although I do not know why Sprint chose to do this the way that they did, whether it be security or lack of an application manager, I would like to see Sprint allow unsigned apps to run in the background. The reason that this is so important is that with so much great functionality in a phone, people do not want to do one thing at a time. It's all about multitasking. For instance, I log on to a instant messaging program, but I want Pandora music playing in the background while I IM people. Then if I want to go surf the web, I still want to stay online to see if I get instant messages. Will Sprint please reconsider/re-evaluate what policies really require a signed app?

Agree. I would like all restrictions on unsigned apps removed, but this is a start. I still propose the idea that Sprint add a choice in the user settings on the phone that lets you enforce or bypass signing rules. By default it's enforced, but users can make the conscious choice to bypass them.
