    Hi all are there any sources that are out there that can provide a list of tasks to be done daily/periodically to keep iPhone running smooth and fast?

    Or can anyone provide such tasks?

    I usually reboot mine once a week. And I always make sure to close all my tabs in Safari when I'm done.

    I also try to remember to reboot mine every week, although, I don't always remember to do so.

    Being serious though:

    I usually:

    • Restore my phone monthly
    • Turn it on and off weekly
    • Try to delete any SMS messages i dont need
    • keep on top of which apps i have on my phone at one time

    That's pretty much all I do and I havent had any problems with my phone at all.

    • What a pain. This is really unnecessary unless you're doing it to fix a problem rather than just as maintenance.

    Umm each to there own really It's always easier to do a restore to update my apps correctly i prefer to do this.

    Only takes about 45mins to do it.

    Ye i agree with the restore option if you backup your phone often it should not take to long. I try to restore once a month and my phone always feels that much snapier for it. That and the large dose of Multivitiamin i feed to it daily ;-)

    I find it looks after itself.

    Ive had it for 6 months and never done any tasks to keep it running well.

    I install and delete apps on the go, ive got hundreds of sms messages on it, same with emails, I sometimes leave web pages open, got 20 GB's of music and hundreds of photo's.

    Its still as smooth and fast as the day I bought it.

    Its been turned off a couple of times because I had to save battery, but thats it.

    The iPhone needs no maintenance as such. Anyone who tells you that a phone needs to be restored etc is wrong.

    You can restart your phone (power cycle it) every so often (few weeks) to recover from any memory leaks, but beyond that no maintenance tasks such as restoring have any effect on the phone at all.

    Note: Jailbreaking changes this advice completely and this only applies to unmodified phones.
