    Hope this is in the right forum. A neighbor of mine, who has an iPhone, says that he restores his phone as new, once a month. Even though he has never been jailbroken, he says that apps from the App Store can leave residual stuff in the phone, and a complete restore will get rid of any bad stuff. Is there anything to this, or is my neighbor just being paranoid? Thanks.

    Your neighbor is being paranoid.

    He is the type of guy who would change his oil every thousand miles. If you are not having any problems I say leave it along. I only restore the phone when I an selling it.

    Thanks for the replies guys. He's a normal guy( retired banker ), but i guess he's got some issues with his iPhone. Thanks again.
