    It usually happens when I am using the Youtube application and the Safari application, but it can happen anytime. Whenever I am using my phone and it lags or slows down for a moment, it stops working for a few seconds and then sends me back to my homepage. At first I thought it was because I had too much memory on my phone, so I got rid of most of it. It still keeps quitting. I noticed it will most likely happen when I try to watch a youtube video or reload an internet page. If I try to make my iPhone do more than one thing at a time (such as turning down the volume and pausing the video), it will send me back to the homepage.

    :apple: tl;dr: My iphone randomly quits out of applications if I go too fast or do too many things at once.


    Please help, it is really annoying. I've tried shutting off my phone and resetting everything, is there anything else I can do? :confused:

    Restore the phone and don't use a backup. See if starting fresh helps. Also, don't load all the apps back on at once.

    If it continues to be a problem and is under warranty try taking it to the Apple Store and see if maybe there is an underlying hardware problem.

    I've noticed this as well on my phone. Sometimes it'll freeze and then shut off. A few times, the screen looks all wonky for a sec and then shuts off. Hard to explain but it's kind of like if your TV dies and the screen colors shift in a zig zag pattern. I can't duplicate it and I've restored and set the phone up as new. I hope it's fixed in 3.1.

    Has anyone else experienced this with their screed right before it shuts off? Is this something I should go see Apple about?
