    Hey all,

    I recently obtained an iphone 3gs which has been working fine mostly apart from about a 3 months ago kept randomly resetting itself one morning. It did this for a few hours then went back to normal.

    Yesterday it started to do the same thing. It will shut itself down randomly at any time, reboot, stay on for a minute or less then reboot itself again. It began to do this continuously over and over. I decided to turn it off all night and see if it needed a big rest lol and when i turned it back on in the morning, same deal. Battery can be at any level too when it does this.

    Anyway i decided to take the sim card out as communication is impossible with the phone doing this constantly and i noticed that it stopped rebooting. It stayed on like it had no issues whatsoever. I thought perhaps a coincidence so i put the sim card back in and it went back to its rebooting cycle. So, i think perhaps the sim card is f'd? I put it into two different phones and it works as normal.

    I decided to buy another cheap sim from another company to see what would happen when i put in, and same thing. It constantly reboots. I left the sim out for 5+ hours today and it did not restart once with it out...

    so... i was wondering if anyone has experienced this or knows what the deal is? I am guessing maybe the phone is knocking on heavens door? I did drop about a month ago and have a lovely spiderweb screen since however there were no immediate problems from this. Is it time to move on? I am curious to know if anyone else has come across this problem. It is quite bizarre..

    Anyway thanks for listening, hope someone has some insight.
