    So last night I updated my iPhone 3 to 4.3 and now it randomly restarts. It will show up with the apple logo all dim, then the screen and logo will brighten and then it goes to the "slide to unlock" screen like everythings normal. It will just randomly do this throughout the day.

    I reset it to factory settings and it still does the same thing. I have since backed it back up though.

    So does anyone know how to fix this? Or does anyone have the same problem. I hope Apple comes out with a new patch or update to fix this issue or others as it seems like a lot of people are having issues with the update. Its getting kind of annoying

    Thanks a lot.

    Resetting settings, in the phone, is not gonna do much for something like this. You need to restore the phone in iTunes. Restoring from a backup, probably isn't gonna fix it, but you can try that first. If restoring from backup doesn't help, "Restore As New".

    I'm pretty sure thats what I did. In iTunes i clicked restore under my iPhone and it reset it back to the factory settings. I don't know if there's a more hardcore restore or recovery I can do though.

    Just a quick question...You say that you have an iPhone 3...The 3G hardware DOES NOT support the 4.3 firmware.

    Well, if you did a"Restore as New" in iTunes, and set it up as a new phone, with no backup, that pretty much eliminates software. Time for a visit to the Genius Bar.
