    Default Installing New App Takes a Long Time

    I'm curious if anyone else is experiencing what I am on the iPhone 4.

    When I try to install a new app on the phone, the download completes without a problem, but it seems to hang when the progress bar is all the way done with "Installing". It doesn't seem to matter which app it is, so I'm thinking it may be an iOS issue. I don't remember having this happen before 4.1.

    I'd appreciate any suggestions anyone has.

    When I reboot the iPhone, the app seems to install during the boot. I was just wondering if there was any way to avoid having to restart each time I install an app.

    Thanks for the tip!

    Sounds to be like you might somehow have gotten the OS corrupted during the update, make sure it's backed up and restore it and restore it from the backup and see what happens, that's what I'd inevitably end up doing before i took it to Apple, which they'll probably do the same thing I told you, so might as well beat them to the punch and do it, and if it keeps up, maybe it's a fluke hardware issue and get a new i4 from Apple
