Apple stuff hard locks?
I thought apple devices were perfect and never freaked out like this?

I had been using it then put it in my pocket. Was fine. Took the phone out of my pocket and it wouldn't come back to life. Tried plugging it in to a computer and also the wall charger. Still wouldn't work.

Had to hold down menu + power before it would reboot. After it came back up all my own personal apps are trashed on the phone and won't start up. They flash and go away. So looks like a restore from backup.

WTF? :headexplode:

I don't own an iPhone, so I can't say anything about it. I do own a 4G iPod Photo that is STILL rocking in my car. Sorry to hear that man.

If I restore it and the apps still won't start I'll have to call this in to VZW and get a warranty replacement.

FWIW I know two people with iPad 1's and they both have had them do some pretty odd things. One guy had the same thing happen as I did although I'm not sure if his apps were broken after the reboot. The other one had his come up with the sad apple face but it started to work again for no obvious reason.

Chinese crap. lol

I have a couple iPhones and a iPad 2 never had anything like that happen. Is your iPhone jailbroke?

My worker's iPhone 3GS locks up like that every 6 months. My other coworker has had a series of iPhones and never had a problem.

Re: Apple stuff hard locks?
As far as hard lockups go you can't blame it on VZW sorry. That's BS. It happens with iPads and iPods. I just had another person swing by my desk and mentioned the same thing happening to them and it isn't a VZW/CDMA device.

Hmm, interesting.

I have had my iPhone lock up before and I just do a hard reset and it's fine.

It seems the magic has ran out on your device. You need to purchase a new one that is at 100% magic.
