    I have noticed that over the past week, there has been in increase in the number of times I have been running an application and I have been kicked back out to the home screen. This has happened both with apps I have installed, as well as native apps (like Safari).

    I am running firmware 2.1, jailbroken.

    Any ideas? One of the websites I was viewing when it happened in safari was realtor.com. Also, it was happening when I was planing fieldrunners last night - about 3 or 4 times!

    I have tried turning my phone on and off, but that doesn't seem to help.

    What about a soft reset? I'm sure you have but I'm just checking.

    Yeah, I have done that as well.

    It would happen occasionally before, but it seems like the frequency has increased over the last week or so.

    I had problems with Winterboard and Safari before. Are you jailbroken?

    According to his post he is. But I've never had issues with Winterboard that would create his issue.

    I also have had this issue, with and without Winterboard. Not sure what the issue is, but a soft reset doesn't stop the issue.

    May not have been winterboard, then...

    I have had problems with some websites that make safari crash. For example, I was posting on another forum that is very graphic heavy and I crashed every time I tried to post a reply. My keyboard would lag very bad and then safari would crash. I don't know if it was the graphics or something else about the page, but I was unable to use it. No flash on the page, just ornate borders and headers.

    I have the exact same problem with Safari, both with a jailbroken (no winterboard) and unjailbroken phone. After a certain amount of web surfing, Safari would get slower and slower to respond, and, eventually, would crash. Twice, it has locked up to the point I had to do a hard reset, though typically it just dumps me out of Safari. At this point, I would estimate that about 35-40% of my Safari sessions end with a crash. I do visit a lot of javascript-heavy sites, and I frequently launch Safari from NetNewsWire, but I have not been able to notice any definitive pattern leading to these crashes.

    I'm new to the iPhone, maybe 2 months. I've recently noticed this with 2.02 and the Facebook app on my phone. How does one soft reset the iPhone? I'll try that first.

    Have you tried clearing your cache, history and then tried a reset?
