    Got a problem with my phone just quitting apps and my iPod without me ending it. It happens pretty often with the iPod function. I'll be playing a song and the screen will go black, the song quit and take me back to the main screen.

    Any thoughts?

    This never happened to me while using the iPod app. But it happens to me all the time will playing games, especially Enigmo. No idea why. Was hoping 2.1 would fix that but it didn't.

    When I loaded 2.1 I didn't restore to a new phone. Thinking of doing that . . . will it make any difference?

    Most often this happens because your system ran out of memory. When the memory is running low, the iPhone will kill the currently running App so there will always be memory to receive calls. So for apps which use a lot of memory (such as games), if you are experiencing this, make sure you don't have more than one page open in Safari, stop it from loading a page before hitting the Home button, and if that doesn't work try turning the phone off and then on again (not just locking it, but holding the lock button until it gives you the option to turn off the phone) before running the app. Also check to see if there are any updates for that app, which might make it use less memory.

    Thanks you, it worked as you said it. I restarted and the app
    worked. I hope apple fixes this bug.

    The two that even after 2.1 keep quitting to home screen are LastFM and 'upcoming' (which looks to have potential if I can ever get to run it!) ..

    Anyone else struggling with LastFM? .. it's a great app and I want to use it but it crashes so often I'm about ready to give up!

    Last.fm app is broken with 2.1 (as are many others reported elsewhere on this forum) ... the last.fm devs have said they're working to fix.

    all my apps run fine except for cro-mag rally which quits as soon as the race starts (goes through set-up fine, then crashes on 'GO'). I dont know if this is a problem with the app or the phone.

    EDIT: tried quitting safari pages to no avail.
