    Hello,

    I wanted to see if anyone else has been running into these similar issues.

    1. My iPhone goes to sleep than when I turn it back on, slide the slider than NONE of my buttons work, as if the touchscreen is disabled. I have to reboot it to get it working agian.

    2. I have issues when I click the home button sometimes it turns the screen off, i have to click a few times to get it back to normal.

    Has anyone else noticed this? I have no customizations or anything special installed, no hacks etc.. Is this a bug?

    This happened to me. I bought an AT&T reburb iPhone and it just kept on bugging me. It kept freezing and I had to keep rebooting it. I got mad and called AppleCare and sent it out. Two days later(today) I received a replacement iPhone(brand new).

    Connect it up to your Mac, iTunes will open, then sync, then just hit restore and that should fix it if its a software problem.

    Otherwise back to the Apple store.

    Try resetting it. Hold down the button on the top and power off. Then turn it back on.

    I had this problem. It got even worse when I dropped it. Hopefully my insurance will cover it.

    Take it to the apple store and try to recreate the problem. They should replace no prob. Also wwe2008 don't tell them about the dropping part ;)

    You can also do a reset from the settings icon on the iPhone. It's under the general menu.

    Also another thing i forgot to mention is voicemail. Sometimes when I goto the voicemail tab it says "unable to connect to voicemail bla bla bla". It is so annoying as I have to do a hard-reboot of the phone. I am going to do a restore so I am hoping it will fix, if not I will head to the Apple store.
