How often do you restore your iPhone?
I'm just curious to what everyone else's experience has been with the need to restore your iPhone.
I've been noticing some apps have started to crash at random. I assume that restoring it and reinstalling the applications will probably take care of it.
When I had a Windows Mobile phone, I was restoring it monthly...I've had this phone for about 9 months now. How often are folks restoring their iPhone? Any pitfalls that I should be aware of before I start?
(BTW - I haven't jailbreak'ed my phone.)
Thanks in advance!

Hands down the iPhone OS is the most stable OS I've used out of all of my phones. I know there will be someone who will not agree with me but for me... that's a fact.
While I was jailbreaking my iPhones restores were more common, a normal iPhone I've only had to restore one time due to a issue.

I restore every so often. I agree with Bad Ash in the stability of the OS, but I am jailbroken and am constantly testing out new jailbreak apps. Sometimes these cause issues and I find a clean restore is needed every once an a while.
When I wasn't jailbroken, I didn't restore. Not once. Can't say the same with my old Windows Mobile phones!

4 lines of service.
7 individual iPhones.
So you do the math.
We have restored far more than anyone should ever have to.
As for a Stable OS, no, not by the standard of most cell phones. Perhaps by the standard of smart phones. No normal cell phone even has to release a restore capability. They run from the day you buy them till the day you get tired of them.
