    Does anyone else have this issue? Sometimes my phone just totally goes black it still works because if you call it the phone rings but you just can see anything on the screen I then hold down the buttons on the phone intill the apple logo comes on the screen and resets the phone and then it is fine again.

    This has happened a few times now and not sure what is causing this has anyone else had this issue?

    I have had the same issue happen to me just once. I was using the phone one minute and put it in my pocket, I pulled it out and hit the home button and the screen was entirely black. I tried hitting the sleep/wake button and nothing happened. I even toggled the ring/silent/vibrate switch and the phone didnt even vibrate when the phone was switched to vibrate. I had to hold down the home button and the sleep wake button for like 5-10 seconds and let it reset, and then the phone came back to normal.
    I'm not sure if this is a hardware issue and if I need to look into a replacement from Apple?

    I have a 1st Generation iPhone and it does this more than daily. Sometimes more than once in a minute seriously!!!!

    This happened to my iPod touch. Probably just a bug. I restored it just recently and it hasn't happened yet.
