    hi all,

    so i just got a brand new iphone 3gs and i was loading apps on it and for some reason they did not open... i believe people had the same issue with the new ipod touch that did the same thing... anyways i just wanted to know if it is bad for the iphone to restore it?

    please let me know...

    thanks,
    ipaqman

    search around this issue doesnt need a restore to fix it, it happened to me once and im pretty sure i fixed it by deleting and re downloading an app

    i already restored it and now it works great... my only question was does a restore harm the phone at all?

    ok so it doesn't put any hidden files into the ipod hardware?

    No, but it does send Apple detailed information about your family, upon restore.

    But seriously, no. What "hidden files" are you talking about?
