    Default Settings app - Has it ever crashed on you?

    Lately my "settings" apps seems to crash 2-3 times a day while I am in there on my 4S. Could be to turn wifi on or off, checking usage stats, or just opening it up period. I don't ever recall it doing this ever but just noticed the past couple of weeks. I am on iOS 5.0.1 and not JB. if yours ever crashes, please tell me and how often.

    That's really odd. I've never personally seen that let alone hear of that happening.

    Yeah same here. I set appt for genius bar tonight right after work. I know they can run diagnostics. Hoping they can get a crash report from it and give me a idea on the cause. If Apple is no help, I may restore and set up as new. I can't see how this would be a hardware issue.

    I have restored but did not set up as new. Don't want to lose all my Angry Birds data. But I may if Genius Bar can't figure it out.

    Garz, mine has done this about two times in the past couple weeks. Didn't know it was an unusual occurrence until I saw this thread. Restoring as new tonight and GB appt tomorrow after work (for various other reasons). What a PITA!

    Edit: restore as new w/iCloud backup has noticeably helped my battery drain. With all apps dl'ing it's barely moving, whereas before, just typing this much would take about 5%.

    Mine has crashed once, just a few days ago. Going to have it checked out since I need to take my iPad 2 in for some major troubleshooting!

    Mine has crashed before. Lately though scrolling through when changing wallpapers is always choppy and laggy the first time.

    I did have the message app crash the springboard 2 weeks ago.

    Went to Genius Bar last night. They had me change some settings around. I am at work right now so I cant get into detail but it has helped. I will post back on this thread tonight and explain further what I changed around.

    ^ Hopefully those settings that they gave you continue to work. That is odd, as I have never had that happen on any of my iPhones.

    Glad to hear some settings will help you out. Hopefully things will now move as smooth a buttah !!

    This is what the genius guy recommended. First, I had "Notes" set up to sync under 4 email accounts. He had me copy/paste all of my notes to the iCloud notes.Then under email in "Settings", I had the 4 email accounts set up. He recommended turning off calendars and notes for all email accounts that I did not need them for. I only needed it for iCloud now. He said I probably had too much syncing going along from 4 email accounts which was causing the freeze up and crashes. Last, he had me rest my settings. Not a full erase or network settings but just the regular settings. Thats would erase any kind of hiccups I had going on. The settings reset may have cleared it without doing the rest but I figured better safe than sorry. So far *knocks on wood* no more settings app crashes. If it somehow continues, I'll have to restore as new. Trying to avoid that as I don't want to lose all of my Angry Birds data.

    Just once. But well I don't think there's any reason to panic.

    After getting a few crashes a day prior, I have yet to get one since my visit at the genius bar.

    Good stuff, what does clearing the settings do? Does that just reset all the sounds, brightness, alert preferences, and all that jive? Think I will try some of the disabling email calenders on some of my accounts and see if it helps with some of the hiccups I get here and there.

    Yes all your preferences and setting are set to the default like the phone is new. Sounds, brightness, ect...
    Data such as your contacts list and media such as your songs and videos are not deleted.
