    My iphone shuts off randomly (5-10 times a day) and requires a reset or plug in with a usb to turn back on. It does not reset when plugged in via usb.

    I jailbreak'd it using pwned to v2.2, I restored it to see if it would happen again..it didn't.

    Anyone know why jailbreaking might be causing this? I want to jailbreak it.

    Any ideas?

    A hard reset (hold down both buttons for 10 seconds) fixes this temporarily because it is a mini-restore.

    When you restored your iPhone, you restored all settings and reinstalled the firmware completely. I doubt that jailbreaking caused this problem. Your iPhone probably just needed a simple restore.;) I would leave the iPhone unjailbroken for about a week to see if the restore fixed the problem. If it doesn't continue, then go ahead with the jailbreak.:)
