    Don't use it as designed whatever you do. Please come to the forums and complain when using it the way it wasn't made to.

    Damn, those people in other countries should have the same problem being that their iPhone COMES unlocked. Jailbreaking dont hurt it either. Mine never has NOT been jailbroken. Just allows for more things unless you install firmware that isnt dev team approved.

    if you JBed then you can use SBSettings and respring.....some apps will do it on exit if you have it. Like Backgrounder.

    Or, just turn it on and off.....its basically the same thing, just a respring is a quicker shorter version of restarting your phone.

    It's a JB thing. Has to do with the SpringBoard add-ons not playing nicely with multitask and the whole saving of memory. Or at least, that's how I see it because my SB always crashes. Like others say, just respring. If you have Winterboard, just toggle something on and off and it'll do it

    Jailbreaking was problematic for me with my 3G. Lotsa neat new functions and capabilities, but stability took a hit. Consequently, I have resisted jailbreaking my 4, especially because the features that originally convinced me to jailbreak are now built-in (multitasking, tethering [for a fee]).

    Have you hard-reset? Sometimes re-springing didn't do the job.

    My jailbroken iPhone has none of the performance issues that hit the 3G. I have my girlfriends non-jb iPhone 4 to compare with.

    There are so many benefits to having your iPhone jailbroken, especially since it causes no performance issues with the 4.

    I'm running bitesms, sbsettings (with a toggle to kill all open apps), vWallpaper, 5 icon dock, custom icons, custom lockscreen, custom carrier and signal logos... And of course facebreak to allow FaceTime over 3G:D

    Never been not jailbroken? You mean it's always been jailbroken. And jailbreaking can brick your phone. So yes it is potentially harmful.

    When u decided to jailbreak your iPhone, you took a risk because u wanted extra features. U also should have known the risks...

    Accept your PUNISHMENT!

    God the people on this forum can be close to useless sometimes.

    Can the OP please let us know what addons he/she have installed after JB?

    Maybe some of them aren't playing nicely?

    There are some addons that are just crappy, for example, the VM mod is highly not recommended.

    This post is unnecessary...

    There is also a dedicated respring app by BigBoss. I think if you just search respring in Cydia you should find it. It gets the job done.
