Also, I'm not so sure I agree with his reasoning for not terminating apps. I'll need to test that for myself.

Not everyone uses their phone the same way, so what may work for me may not necessarily work for someone else.
Well I think he's talking more about extreme situations where acquiring and maintaining a signal is very difficult to impossible. I think it may be a practical idea when traveling through zones with very poor or no service, or when in a building where you wouldn't be expecting to use your phone anyway. We aren't allowed to use our cell phones at work and mine stays in a locker for 8 or more hours, though I might check it on break. Obviously one should weigh the ups and downs and your immediate situation before implementing that tip.
