    Default Game Center Not Working

    Is anyone else having problems with Game Center. When I open it I'm met with a blank screen, Opening up Game Center in Settings just shows my Apple ID with the spinning loading indicator under it & when I play games that use Game Center I'm not getting logged in which defeats the object of having games tie into Game Center for Achievements when it just decides to stop working?

    It started working again yesterday evening when I changed from the Silicone, Aluminium & Gorilla Glass Life Proof case for a Gel & Leather Wallet case that I was using prior to the Life Proof case which seems strange as I was able to use game center fine for a while when I originally put the Life Proof case on.

    I had the exact same problem. It just started a week ago. I tried turning my phone completely off and on and nothing. Then I read this thread tonight.

    I don't know why your solution worked as there is nothing logical about why it should work, but it did. I took the case off. Turned it fully off. Turned it back on with the case off and both the game center and games are working perfectly again.

    Thanks for posting this as I would never have though to try it otherwise.

    I just think the mere fact that you all turned your phone off and back on or rebooting it was what did the trick.

    I have been having the same issue for a few days - I have rebooted many times, but to no avail. I also upgraded to the latest software release this afternoon. I just found this thread and tried (on a lark) removing my cover and rebooted again. I am shocked to discover that this actually worked! I cannot explain it, but give it a try.

    No, I have done that several times and nothing happened. I have just taken mine out of the keyboard case and still nothing.
    Resetting deletes everything and you have to start again.

    To whom are you responding and what have you done several times as mentioned in your previous post?

    Thanks, changing the date is what finally worked. Tried restarts and resets, but that didn't help.
