    Not sure what is happening, but my iPhone decided to start acting whacky today. I noticed it first when I went to open AIM and it opened and closed instantly, without logging in. After trying other apps, same thing happened, I could not get them to load. Very frustrating.

    So I reset all my settings and now the apps still won't open and my phone won't connect to my network or even ask me for my security code.

    Any suggestions?

    Try restoring it. Since it sounds like there is possibly a corrupt file somewhere I would recommend the "set up as a new phone" option, and then resync everything manually (i.e. not from a backup).

    Turn off and turn back on?

    You said you reset your settings, did you also turn your phone off and turn it back on?

    How do you "Set up as a new phone" option?

    Re:

    Mine is fine today.

    I find that restarting it 3-4 times a week really helps with crashing.

    The phone will go through the restore process and then restart, when it restarts and you are hooked up to itunes it will bring up a screen with two options: Restor from backup or set up as new phone. I would recommend setting it up as a new phone. Its a bit more hassle because you have to resync everything, but it is more of a "true" restore.
