Phone was replaced but still freezes up. I believe the problem is tapatalk. That is the app I'm in when it locks up on me. I can get back to the home screen sometimes but if I try to close the app from there it locks up the phone. Try to shut the phone down and the screen goes black but it won't power back up and requires a hard reset.

And no, I don't care if it works fine for you. It isn't working well here and I'm on the second phone now. Its an app issue.

Delete tapatalk and reinstall it. I highly doubt that it's tapatalk.

My wife's iPhone has been goofing up the last few days as well.

+1 Try this. Tapatalk works fine for everyone else. Maybe a bad install.

IOS 4.2.8

Isn't a restore from backup via itunes the same as a reinstall? That much was done when I swapped the device. It only freaks out in tapatalk.

No, do a fresh install. The copy you got from the backup could be corrupted.

I think your tapatalk install may be corrupted too.
Everytime you post it is saying

Pretty odd that a 'corrupt' app starts and works fine for days at a time then suddenly blows up out of noowhere. Ill try reloading it from the store. They better not charge me again.
