    If this has been covered already , then I apologise ,But I have tried searching and cannot find anything. I realise asking a question that has already been asked a few times is fighting talk in some circles !

    ....But anyway

    On 2.2 I noticed that sometimes , a good couple of times a day , I would go to use my iPhone 3G , and it would be 'Dead' it wont switch on by the power switch , and the only way to get it back on is to hold the power and home buttons down for 10 seconds , after which it restarts , but takes AGES , about 2-3 minutes on the apple logo - but then it all works again ill the next time
    I was hoping that 2.1 would solve this , but it is still happening a few times a day :mad:

    According to o2's site , I'd need to take it to the point of purchase , but , because iPhone's were in short supply when I bought it , this is miles away !

    Anyone else had this problem , or know of a solution ?

    Is your phone jailbroken? Also if this is happening several times a day, then I would definitely take it to the apple store.

    No , (sorry , should have said ! ) The 3G is 'Virgin'

    The strange thing is , I did get a VERY similar thing on my old 2G after I jailbroke it , mainly if I left it to go into standby instead of powering off - but yes, the crashes are just like that !

    Becoming a pain , as I have missed a few calls , looks like a trip to o2 then ! , thanks
