    I was playing a game ("Let's Play Golf") and I went to the home screen. After that all of my apps started crashing. I click on the app, the screen flashes, and it closes, then returns to the home screen. 90% of my apps will not open. The original features all work though (Ex: Stocks, notes, etc.) The most recent change I made was updating the free AIM app, and enabling push on that app. I don't know if this problem is related to the app I was using or the recent change.

    I reset my phone twice, and the issue is not resolved. I even re-synced my iphone, and that didn't help. I also disabled push notifications, and reset my phone, to no avail. Anybody else having this problem? what should I do?

    1) Back up your iPhone
    2) Restore to factory settings
    3) Restore from backup
    4) Re-sync

    This should work.

    If it doesn't work then schedule an appointment at your local apple store:

    Delete the applications from your iPhone.

    Re-sync with iTunes.

    With your iPhone connected to iTunes, select the "Applications" tab, and re-check the applications you deleted.

    Hit "Apply" (bottom right corner).

    Hit "Sync".

    Undock your phone, power it off, then on.

    Enjoy.

    Plug into iTunes and do a restore and set up as new iPhone. That's all I got. If that doesn't fix it the you are infor a DFU restore but we will cross that bridge when we get there.

    Sadly, I don't think a restore will work because there is a much larger problem. I tried to remove an app and then re-sync my phone to my computer to restore it, and it will not allow me to transfer the game back onto my phone. I get the message that my computer is not authorized. So I authorized it, and I get the same message. I even deauthorized it, then reauthorized it and I get the same message. The only thing that works is repurchasing the app, which really sucks!!! Of course I'll dispute the charges with Apple later on today.

    So even is I restore my iPhone, I'll be out of luck because I will have to face the authorization issue.

    This really, really sucks because I will lose my financial data from pocketmoney, and I'll have to spend all night re-downloading apps. First the battery % issue, and now this. :mad::mad:

    I hope no one else has this issue.
