There is no task manager for the iPhone to monitor background applications. The iPhone does not allow apps to run in the background. So as soon as you press the home button the app stops running. It may be necessary to turn off and on your phone every once in a while if you believe it is acting slow.

The iPhone does not only work off the cell towers. It uses actual GPS along with the towers. As for an app showing which satellites, I have not seen one yet. Maybe someone will be able to point you to one if any are available.
