    Is anyone else having issues where they will pick up their iPhone and it simply does not respond at all? It runs fine but several times a day I will pick it up and no button presses will wake it up or get it to respond. I have to restart it each time which gets annoying. Can't seem to isolate it, I did a restore as new and didn't install any apps and it still did it. This started pretty much the day of 3.1 release.

    I have an iPhone 3G.

    There is a 5 page thread in Apple's support forum about this issue.

    This appears to be a 3G problem not 3GS. Here is the link for the now 15 page thread on Apple's discussion forums. Apple - Support - Discussions - Mysterious random total shut downs ...

    I think i may have figured it out on mine at least... I have had zero crashes since yesterday... I noticed that the password lock intervals were lowered again, this time with 15 being the highest... I had mine set to 1 hour on 3.0.1, but when i went into the settings 15 min was the highest and none were selected... This makes me think that since my backed up settings were telling it to PW lock after an hour and that isnt possible on 3.1, it is causing the phone to crash because the OS doesnt recognize the setting... Just a thought, and i know i havent had anymore crashes since selecting 15 min...

    There are people in that thread and another saying they have it with their 3GS as well. I don't use a passcode lock so it's not that. I went all day yesterday and it didn't happen. Happened a bunch today. Comes and goes.

    mine has crashed 6 times since the 3.1 update. I did a restore Friday and that didnt help either.

    I am not happy.

    At least for my phone i believe the problem was solved with the Passcode lock issue i explained above... Its been 24+ hours since my last crash...

    Yeah, ever since I loaded 3.1, I've had all sorts of strange anomalies: the one you described being just one of them.

    BTW, I'm on a 3G.
