iPhone Went Crazy While I was Sleeping

    So I woke up this morning and I went to check my Facebook using the Facebook app and I got an error saying the internet wasn't working - so I turned off the phone and turned it back on.

    When the phone re-booted I noticed the fonts were different on the lock screen. After putting in my password, I also noticed that all of my icons had been moved around into a random order (including the docked icons). Also, at this time, a message box popped up and had some copyright information on a program that had something to do with font changing - which I don't EVER remember installing, especially recently.

    Also, the icons reset EVERYTIME the the phone resets or the Springboard is "Resprung'. I haven't downloaded or changed anything (that I remember) since last night (when the phone was working perfect).

    Any ideas?

    SUMMARY (for lazy people like me):
    1. Phone Froze right after the internet stopped working.
    2. Turned the phone off, then on.
    3. Randomly have a new font.
    4. Icons will not stay in place.

    Phone Info:
    iPhone 3G, AT&T Service, Jailbroken.

    EDIT - Just found another problem, the actual phone "app" doesn't work. When you click on it, it loads very slow and the keypad shows up for a split second, then it goes back to the home screen.

    If your phone is jailbroken the simple solution would be to unjailbreak it.

    That would be a good solution if there weren't a million jailbroken phones working perfectly fine. Also, this phone has been jailbroken for months and it was working completely fine until this morning.

    Let's not turn this into an anti-jailbreaking thread.
