    Default how to make a program run in the background

    i am trying to make a program run in the background in android , i tried many service examples but it just got more complicate for me i am tring to run a simple app witch silents the phone when we turn it over (i know there is a Built in but that for sileting the phone when it is on it back we just put the phone on its "face" and it is in silent mode ) i am trying to do something similar like when we put the phone in our poket the magnetic filed shows the "y" is in "-num" (in num i mean number) but when we turn the phone upside down it becomes "+num" now i have the code that makes the phone silent and make sound here it is :
    Java Code:
    private SensorManager mSensorManager;
    private Sensor mSensor;
    public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        mSensorManager = (SensorManager) getSystemService(Context.SENSOR_SERVICE);
        mSensor = mSensorManager.getDefaultSensor(Sensor.TYPE_MAGNETIC_FIELD);
    public void onAccuracyChanged(Sensor sensor, int accuracy) {
      protected void onResume() {
        mSensorManager.registerListener(this, mSensor, SensorManager.SENSOR_DELAY_NORMAL);
      protected void onPause() {
    public void onSensorChanged(SensorEvent event) {
        if (event.values[1] >= 29 )
            ((AudioManager) getSystemService(AUDIO_SERVICE))
        if (event.values[1] <= -29 )
            if (event.values[2] >= -15 && event.values[2] <= 2 )
            ((AudioManager) getSystemService(AUDIO_SERVICE))
