    Hey Guys,

    I have an unlocked iPhone 3G running 3.0 and it keeps rebooting (and vibrating twice) when plugged into my Macbook via USB and the wall outlet.

    If I try to unplug the phone I can hardly use it for a minute or so before it turns off completely.

    Please help guys this is really annoying and I havn't been able to find a clear solution as yet.

    It looks like you will have to restore your phone and re-unlock it.

    It also may habe to be repaired. So a restore is definately on order before going into an Apple store.

    Thanks. Wish I were in school again.

    As far as your issue. I am unsure what the problem is.

    Did you restore your iPhone from DFU and set it up as new? If so, was it rebooting then too? Because if it's a fresh restore, with nothing else installed and no JB, then I'd have to say a trip to the Apple store is called for.

    I'd put my money on a faulty JB app.

    yes I restored as new and it still does it it even did it on my other iPhone once but I don't backup that one often.

    But was it a DFU mode restore? Just plugging your iPhone into the PC and clicking restore in iTunes doesn't wipe everything out.

    Once I forgot to backup some Cycorder videos before doing a regular restore. Luckily, the videos were still stored within the file structure.

    I haven't read this anywhere, but the impression I have after messing around with many restores is that a DFU mode restore will format the device, a regular restore doesn't. Perhaps there's a file on your iPhone that isn't being erased that's causing your problems.

    Thanks for telling me this I will do a DFU restore later.
