    When I play games on my iPhone it really slows down my phone and it lags so much it restarts the phone. Please help!

    So you're saying the phone automatically restarts when you play a game? That shouldn't happen, try restoring.

    Upgrade to the new iPhone 5 ©. It's the biggest thing to happen to iPhone since iPhone ™.

    if you are playing a big game yes it will go slow after u quit the game or in between, but it shouldnt restart.. but after u quit the game open multitasking and close the game and wait about a min and then use your phone

    Before you play your game, close your apps from the multitasking bar. You're probably running out of RAM. That or the game you're playing just requires so much resources your phone cannot handle it

    I set aside about 3 hours and set my iPhone 4 up as a new phone. It's a time-consuming endeavor but it really does help things run more smoothly. I recommend it if you don't intend on upgrading.

    No it isn't.

    But yes, do restore the iPhone 4. Its probably some data thats in limbo or other stuff from syncing that has been building up. My iPhone 4 is still blazing fast.

    try killing any apps that are running in the background, also rebooting your phone by holding the lock/home buttons until the apple logo pops up
