    Hi there, I;m a long time lurker and can't find any other threads with this problem.

    Since I downloaded 3.0 on my iPhone 3G I have been having problems.
    Unresponsive screen
    Slow typing making texting/email almost impossible (and general slow everything)
    No ringer when someone calls despite it being on the loudest setting
    When I do answer I can't hear anything the other end.
    The keyboard randomly appearing on the home menu.
    The option to back up is missing from iTunes.

    And thats just a few of the issues.
    If I hard restore (the home button and off button together thing I think) the phone temporary doesn't have the issues.

    I took my phone and MacBook Pro into my local Apple who said it was probably a bug so I had to reset up my phone as a new phone.
    Ok... The issues started again. This time they could see my phone would not back up so they gave me a brand new one.

    It's happening again!

    Could anyone shed any light on this please? As I have another appointment at the Genius Bar but they are adamant its not my iTunes and I must be really really unlucky with phones :(

    Have you reinstalled iTunes? That might be part of the issue with the backup problem.

    Oh, BTW, it's hardware and software. It's not like something you wear.
