    Last night I was running the cnbc real time app and my screen went dark. I could see the backlight was still on but the screen was a lit black screen. For a few minutes I presses all the buttons and finally the phone booted up.

    This morning my phone did the same thing for no reason. I finally had to press both the power button and home screen button to get it to re boot.

    When I ran the new game. Eliminate gun range, the phone did the same thing

    Anyone else have similar problems or know what it may be? My concern is that I may not be able to replicate it at the genius bar if I take the phone there

    No one else with the same problem I guess. Time to return this dud for another one!

    I had this type of problem.. mine would fall asleep and not wake back up.. I'd have ot reset it each time. Did it 10 times in a day.

    I took it to the Genius bar and got a replacement.

    Similar problem

    My iPhone 4 32gb has frozen about 5-8 times a day, usually when it's on my pocket or bag. I can't replicate it on demand, hopefully I cac get a replacement.
