    Apple replaced my iPhone 5 yesterday due to the screen developing a green border. First replacement was stuck in a boot-loop, so they replaced the replacement. It came with iOS6 on it.

    Got it home, restored as new via iMac with iOS7. Restored from backup, all was going as planned. Then, it restarts (wasn't even using it at the time). Thought nothing of it. Went to bed, and woke to a phone that wouldn't switch on, needed to hold home+power to get it going.

    So, in the Diagnostic & Usage list, I see around 10 panic.plist entries.

    Next, I do a DFU restore and set up as new. The random restarts continue. I then restore a final time (this time from my backup). Problem prevails...

    I've got a Genius Bar appointment first thing Monday AM to get it sorted, as many see the panic.plist errors as hardware based.

    It was fine for the 4 hours it was running iOS6 though... How odd.

    Have any of you had the same (or similar problems)? Have I missed anything??
