    One day, after i ran my iphone's battery all the way down and rebooted it, none of the apps worked. They crashed and crashed, leaving only the official apps working. I do have about 6 pages of apps, so could that be the problem??

    Also, it says that there is no music on the iPod, yet when I plug it into iTunes it says there is 2 GBs of music.

    I have tried restarting it many times, restoring it, doing pretty much everything. After taking it to the apple store, it began to work, but when I loaded all my apps, it crashed.

    Presently, I am running only 2 or so pages of apps, and it is working.

    Is there a problem, what is going on?

    By official apps do you mean from the app store as opposed to ones downloaded from the installer?
    Could it be that a single app is screwing up your iPhone? Do you know when it started happening, or what you were doing / downloading when it happened?
    Before I installed one app at a time to see which the faulty one is I'd try a firmware downgrade (or upgrade?) first.

    EDIT: I just read in another thread that this kind of thing can be caused by having too many apps on the phone. I suggest keeping only those you really need until they (hopefully) fix it in a future firmware update.

    Oh, yeah sorry I didn't clarify that earlier. By official apps I meant Safari, Maps, Phone, etc (The ones made by Apple for the iPhone) and the other apps come from the app store, not installer.

    And the problem started just one random day when I ran the iPhone's battery down to 0%.

    Wow, at least other people are having the same problem as me of having too many apps!

    There is a whole thread on this issue, and this has been happening for some time. No need to start a new thread.

    In any case, I and many others have had this issue (apps not working, music and video not appearing) and this has worked for me going on 2 weeks now...

    It involves going back to iTunes 7.7.0 and resyncing your apps.
