Humm, iOS 7.1.2 was very stable for me. Have you recently downloaded a new app or have you given thought to updating to the latest iOS.

I did update to 8 - it was horribly slow (even after a day or 2) - half the time the KB wouldnt even load in messages (just blank) went back to 7 for now. I have never had issues until this last week. No new apps... no new anything?

Just to be sure, is your iPhone by any chance jailbroken? You can check that by looking at your home screen and finding any application named Cydia. If you do find that app, there's the culprit. Because I jailbroke my iPhone once and the exact thing happened to my iPhone 5bwhich is happening to yours.

lol - its not Jailbroken. (and im not sure if someone would not know that and would have to check?)

anyway.. im not the only one. My wifes phone turned the iMessage off yesterday (and i KNOW she didnt do it since she has no clue how) PLUS the person she was texting also turned off on its own. It happened mid convo.

Well, I updated back to iOS 8 just to try (even though I know I cant go back now) - so far... its "ok"

Sounds like low memory problems might have caused the issue.

Like the others, I didn't have any of the problems you mentioned when I was running iOS 7.1.2 on my iPhone 5. To be honest, I don't know what to tell you except to either go through each and every native & 3rd-party settings or go to Settings - General -Reset and then select "Reset All Settings" to see if that helps.

Nope. No issues.

Sounds like you may have gotten a bad .ipsw file when you reverted to 7.1.2. Something similar happened to me, I reverted and my Music app would freeze and crash every time. For that reason, I went ahead and stayed on 8.0. 8.1 seems better than the initial 8.0.
