    I'm getting this error message. Reset the iPhone but still get it. Thoughts on what to do?

    I got this once too, but then tried again in a few minutes and everything was ok. Not sure if it's a bug, too many people logging in at once, or what...

    Maybe it's just protecting you from the awfulness known as facebook...

    I had this happen with AIM last night, just restart your phone, all should be well, if not, uninstall and reinstall it.

    Do like this:

    My solution:
    1) turn off the device
    2) go to itunes, in the menu to store -> authorize computer
    3) enter your apple ID to authorize the machine again
    4) turn on the device
    5) sync your apps
    Hope it works. It worked for me. :)

    it has happened to me before on two different applications. It was on aim and poker. I tried the home button for 10 seconds and it did not work. Tried waiting it out and it did not work. I had to shut down the phone holding the power button for 10 seconds and boot it back up and the application worked.
