    my iPhone has been freezing up lately... A LOT! (won't wake up from sleep)
    i don't want to bring it in bcause it was also like that on the previous one that I replaced because there was that huge yellow tint.


    anyone else experiencing the screen not turning on and then you have to reset the phone?

    and

    should I bring it in to exchange? i brought it in a few times before. i don't know if they flagged me lol because of their faulty hardware.

    mine just locks up when I have in incoming call. It is sweet, I get a call can not answer it am then forced to reboot the thing and try calling the person back. I have been getting in the habit of restoring the phone once every two weeks. This way the problem is minimal.

    How long do your restores last? I had to restore last night after safari froze TWICE in one day on me to the point where a reset was required (holding down the home or power buttons individually did nothing). The restore took FOREVER.

    I had that exact same problem.

    I took my iPhone to a genius yesterday. Boy was that a waste of time!
    I explained it to him what happens to my phone so he ran the diagnostics on my phone and it showed up as 0 times my phone has restarted. So I told him well then it's just shutting off I guess or it's just totally unresponsive. He looks at me and tells me "oh, well that's a whole different issue." He told me it can become unresponsive because of some applications blah blah... and that I can hold the home button to quit them. I told him that's not it! He then unplugged my iPhone and handed it to me. I was surprised! I told him "That's it?" He looks at me and tells me, Yupp. I told him it is really annoying having your phone lock up/ shut down 2-3 times a day. He said he understood. Then I told him it sometimes happens after I text message people and it can be random and it happened once after I got off the phone with someone. He then tells me "I'm seeing a pattern between phone calls and text messages, It could be that some of your contacts data is corrupt and you will have to manually re-enter them into your phone." He also told me to restore my phone and set it up as a new phone. I told him that i've done that before and the problem still happened after that.

    About now I was getting a little angry... lol :D
    So I told him that i'm just going to go home and restore my phone again, set it up as a new phone and that if my phone continues to have this problem I am going to bring it in again. He tells me Definitely, we want to know what's going on with your phone.

    If I didn't tell him "That's It?" He would have let me leave the Apple store with no answers at all!




    I restored my phone, again, like he said and I didn't waste my time redoing my contacts. So far, so good. I just hope i'm done with that problem!!! :mad:

    ive had this problem since the i downloaded the latest firmware..id say on average im restarting my phone 4-5 times a day, and it will happen randomly (my phone doesnt come out of the black screen)
    also, i went to go listen to music last week, and all my music was gone for some reason..a little weird because i hadnt plugged it into the computer in a couple weeks plus its on manual sync
