    click on the links, nothing. I can copy the link, paste into browser and it works fine. But for some reason the link won't open itself in a browser.

    I've called apple care - no help. Did a restore, then couldn't get my phone to restore (error 1013?), so I had to take it to the apple store. Only thing they did differently was air sprayed the connection bay on the phone. Full restore, everything worked fine.

    I get home, restore my backup, and the problem returns. Only thing I can think of is the phone is unsure of which browser to use? I use both safari and atomic, but never had this happen until 2 days ago.

    Any suggestions? Anyone experienced anything like this before?

    What happens if you delete atomic?

    apparently my restrictions were preventing safari from opening. everything works fine now!
