    So my iPhone's been acting pretty weird lately. For about the past two weeks I haven't been getting any emails and haven't been able to download from iTunes however internet and other net based services work just fine. Tried a bunch work arounds, said "Cannot connect to mail server" and "Cannot connect to iTunes" (or something like that) every time. So I did a restore on the phone to a backup from a few weeks ago and it got email and iTunes working again, but now I'm half way into an App Store update and the updates are sitting in limbo with half and quarter status bars (have been like that for 12 hours).

    Is this a hardware problem or are the settings on this phone somehow FUBAR and need a full factory restore?

    Do another restore but don't restore from backup.
    Maybe your backup file is messed up and causing these issues.

    I deleted the Apps that were half downloaded and used the App store so things seem fine. However I may soon do a full restore just for the heck of it. It's just very weird these issues popping up all of a sudden but by the same token this phone has seen a year and a half of hard use so it's not surprising. Just strange I can use the net all day and all night but other internet dependent programs crap out.

    Yep, weird.
    But from the sounds of it seems like a software bug and not hardware related.
