I was wondering if anyone has had a problem with the Iphone 3G freezing.
I have had the phone for nearly 2 weeks.
Last night it frooze, I could not get it to do anything, if someone phoned me it would vibrate and not ring. (was set on ring)
You could not go to menu or anything.
I did a restore on Itunes and it fixed to problem.

Any ideas or has anyone else had this problem.

I have heard of some of the larger apps causing the iPhone to crash. Apple have advised that after installing a large sized app to restart your iPhone before using it. This isn't necessarily what has happened to you but more of a heads up.

Mine hasn't frozen since fw 2.1
