    The following solution worked for me

    Hi,

    I had the exact same problem which started about 6 months after I got the phone. I just finished using iTunes to restore the firmware and now it is working fine.
    Just sync the phone to iTunes to back it up, then select Restore. It takes about 20 minutes but you can then reload your backup from iTunes, another 15 minutes, and you are good to go.

    Good luck

    Tom
