WHat would be the way to properly clean up these threads in the Windows Service OnStop?

phoneWorkerThread.Name = "Thread " + " | [" + dataRowString + "] " + System.Guid.NewGuid.ToString()
phoneWorkerThread.IsBackground = True
phoneWorkerThread.Start(sendRow)

If I remember correctly, you maintain a list of these threads right? You would need to abort all these threads before the service dies.

CodeCruiser,
  So along these lines (using the dictionaty list)

            Dim t As Thread
            For Each t In Diagnostics.Process.GetCurrentProcess().Threads
                t.Abort()
            Next t

This is not using dictionary and may result in trying to abort the UI thread as well. You would need to change the loop to

For Each t in ThreadDictionary.Keys

or similar.
