    (Before you tell me to try to restore, don't worry, I will try that when I'm back at my "home" computer)

    I accidentally clicked on a link of a tourist attraction in the Facebook app this AM which then prompted me that Facebook would like to use my current location. I clicked "Don't Allow" but then it kept cycling and asking me the same question!

    So I went and reset my location settings on my iPhone...open up the Facebook app again...still prompts me for my current location no matter how many times I click "Don't Allow."

    I then exit out of Facebook and delete the app. Then I did a reset (by holding down the power and Home buttons). The Apple logo shows up...then the phone shuts down on its own. Again and again.

    I did a reset while it was on my charger and I get the iTunes and USB cord picture.

    What the heck happened? :confused:

    If I have to do a restore, I am tempted to update to iOS 4.2 while I'm at it!


    iPhone 3G
    iOS 3.1.3

    You can restore back to 3.1.3 you dont have to go up to 4.2.1
    3.1.3 is the best firmware version for the iphone 3G IMO.
