    Has this ever happened to anyone? I sometimes reboot my iPhone with power+Home if my recharge ever gets stuck on 99% when I unplug it, and occasionally some of my settings will reset, and I will be greeted with a "Welcome, this is the Homescreen blah blah" message as if it is the first time using it...

    Not a huge deal, but a little annoying since it turns back on notifications, turns of battery %, turns off tilt lock and a few other things...

    I have the same issue!

    My iPhone 4 is not jailbroken, and I had this same issue with 4.0.1 and now with 4.1.

    My ringtone gets reset, as well as the home screen background. The battery percentage indicator is turned off as well. I also see the update bar under the apple logo while the phone is booting up, same one you see when performing an upgrade or restore.

    Why is this happening?? It's very easy to undo the damage, but it's annoying.

    Just happened again, not jailbroken btw.

    Maybe I should switch off, rather than do a hard reset in future?

    Maybe hard reset can damage the iOS, whereas switching off actually shuts it down properly?

    sorry to bring up this old thread but i didnt want to start a new one, i just experienced teh same problem! another odd thing was that i was playing "tilt to live" just now, when i was done, i hit the home button and my wallpaper changed itself to the lock screen wallpaper (my lock screen and homescreen wallpaper were different photos).

    has anyone else been having this problem? OP, does this still happen to you?
