    yet in the dock it works perfect and once awake its fine!?!

    I was thinking its on its last legs but the thing works perfectly in the dock and once its awake.

    IE on the "slide to unlock" screen, sometimes (pretty much all the time now) it won't let me slide it :mad:

    Even if I try and turn it off it won't "slide to power off".

    Im missing calls because the bloody thing won't unlock :(

    £200 for 8 months use, whoop that was worth it.

    Tried restoring but still doing it.

    Any ideas before I go mad and have to resort to an older **** phone? :(

    Want this to last until iPhone 4G :(

    it happens to me all of the time to. I miss calls all the time! It pisses me off. I have no real explaination for this. Maybe it's just a bug in 2.2. Any others having this problem?

    I might go back to 2.1 if this is the case.

    Althought I'd have to quickpwn it then and I want to use the apple way of doing things GRRRR.

    Maybe I'll have to download a older version of itunes for windows and do it that way.

    But thanks for posting, gives me some hope its not hardware!

    Ok gone back to 2.1 on a original restore and its stillll doing it :(

    Guess its a call to apple time as its not a software issue!
