    Sometimes I'll be on my iPhone doing whatever, and once I am finished I will click the lock button and the screen will go off.

    5 minutes later, if I want to check the time or whatever, I click the lock button again, and the screen doesn't come on. I try again, nothing. Again, nothing.

    So every time this happens I have to do a hard reset.
    And it's starting to annoy me now because I've had it happen a lot lately.

    Anyone have a solution to fix this?
    Or is anyone else experiencing this problem?

    Did you try a restore? Just figured i'd ask since you didn't mention if you did or not.

    I have the exact same problem. i think it's time for a trip to the Apple store soon. A restore doesnt seem to have helped me, but it my help you

    It happens to me too. Getting a replacement iPhone won't fix anything. It's in the firmware.


    You can try turning it off and on once a day in the meantime.

    Yeah sorry I should have mentioned I tried a restore the other day, no good.

    Damn.
    Thanks.

    Hopefully Apple fix this soon as it is so annoying.

    Yep... This happens to me too. I think the iPhone just freezes up. I just wait a couple minutes and then my phone starts working again. If all else fails- it's a hard reset.
