    Hello everyone, I'm new here and I apologize if this is not the proper place to post this .. I would like some help please

    I have an 8GB 3GS iPhone with iOS 5.0.1 installed,
    Lately Ive been experiencing a problem with the iPhone that I noticed started when I installed iOS 5.0.
    I thought updating to 5.0.1 would fix it but it hasnt and the problem is still there

    Basically my problem is that the iPhone keeps restarting/rebooting itself every 5 or so minutes. Whats funny about this is that this ONLY happens when Im in this one areamy classroom in the basement at school
    Whenever I am anywhere else the phone does not do this. However, as soon as I go to that classroom my phone will start restarting/rebooting itself every 5 minutes. One thing about that classroom is that I get absolutely no signal there, or if I am lucky then I may get 1 bar for a few seconds before it disappears.
    This problem is really driving me crazy and Im not sure what to do. I tried restoring the iPhone but that did not fix the problem, and like I said I updated to 5.0.1 and hoped that it would fix the problem but it hasnt.
    When I was on iOS 4 this problem never occurred
    NOTE: my iPhone is not jailbroken, I have not jailbroken it with iOS 5 or 5.0.1

    Anyone have any ideas or suggestions? Anyone else experiencing this problem?

    Just an update on the situation. When I went to class today I put the phone on airplane mode before going in and the phone still kept restarting during class

    When I left class I turned airplane mode off and the phone restarted maybe 1 or 2 times after that and then it was fine, stopped restarting ...

    Also, my phone isn't under warranty so I wouldn't be able to take it to Apple

    When you restored the phone, did you restore from backup or restore from new. If you did from backup, try from new. If there is a corrupted file in your phone restoring from backup will put the file right back on your phone.

    I don't remember actually, but I believe one of the times was restoring as a new phone

    Just another update on this situation actually, when I put my phone on airplane mode .. the phone starts restarting itself as well, and this happens no matter where I am. If I put my phone on airplane mode at home for instance it will begin restart itself just like it does in that classroom where I have no signal. This problem definitely lies with the signal .. it seems like 0 signal causes the phone to restart every 5 minutes ..

    Sounds like you should make a genius bar appt and go to apple ... Could be a hardware issue that's just untimely triggered by no signal and just a coincidence from iOS 4 to iOS 5

    The same thing happened to me this weekend. Here is what I did.

    The first thing I wanted to do was make a back up. When I tried this, I received an error message saying something like it couldn't back up because of a corrupt file.

    So then, I did a restore as new. When that finished, i Loaded in an old back up and everything seems to be working fine now. The only thing is, I lost anything new since the last back up.

    So you were having the exact same problem? Is there a way to restore as a new phone and not have it back up anything at all?

    My iPhone is no longer under warranty .. I am not sure what to do

    When I put my iPhone into airplane mode it starts restarting itself as well

    Doesn't it cost $30 just to speak to someone over the phone for Apple support?

    Think that it is a physical issue
