    Has anyone else noticed this bug? For me it has occurred primarily in Google Maps. I will be navigating the map, and the screen goes blank for a second and the home screen appears. I am 100% positive I didn't hit the home button and it has happened on more than one occasion.

    Side note: I have noticed also, that if I receive a SMS, when I slide to unlock, sometimes it is rather slow to display the message.

    Neither one of these are detrimental to usage, but a minor annoyance and if there is an existing fix, I would like to know. Otherwise I suppose I will have to wait for an update.

    The heading back to the home screen like that is what the iPhone does when an app crashes; I've had it happen randomly to me with Safari if I'm on a JS-heavy page. :)

    Is there something I can do to try and prevent this? Free up some space? Anything? Has anyone found the cause for these crashes?

    Yeah, it's called iphone service pack 1, but apple won't release it before m$ releases vista service pack 1. It's gamesmanship.

    I have experienced this in virtually every application except ipod, usually when safari is loading a lot of photos or java heavy page as mentioned above. Seems that a restart of the phone helps a little

    I've had it happen in the iPod application a few times, did a power off/power on by holding the home/standby button until it shut down and it quit doing it. Something musta gotten gorped up a bit.

    Has been ok since then for me.

    It's kind of freakin me out.

    Last night my battery died while I was talking on the phone and that's when all the glitching started. Every app I opened would only work for a little while then automatically go back to the Menu page. It was doing it the worst in iPod. For a while I couldn't even listen to a whole song before it would stop and go back to the menu. I just powered it off, then on for the third time and (cross my fingers) it seems to be working now. Do you think this is something that will be fixed in the first update? I hope so, because the glitching's got me worried.:eek:
