    Unhappy iphone shuts off when someone calls

    I finally figured out why my iphone keeps shutting down on it's own. When the phone is locked (black screen) and someone calls it shuts down. I have to press and hold the power and home key to reboot it every time. I can, however, get calls when the phone isn't locked, but it takes a while to ring (longer than normal).

    I unlocked it using iBrickr and anySIM and am using T-Mobile.

    Can anyone help or direct me on what to do?

    I know this might sound stupid, but did you make sure the battery is properly charged?


    Fake Edit: Do an itunes restore and report back.

    Battery is full and still happens (that was my first thought, but of course too good to be true).

    I've done a restore once already after the first time and then had to do anySIM again and it wouldn't work (got an error saying couldn't find/read patch or something like that). I had to reinstall with itunes several times b4 it worked again (I ended up not having to use anySIM after jailbreaking it the final time, which I thought was weird). Is there a way to avoid this problem?

    I just followed these steps:

    Then the very first time I put on some games, but other than that nothing. I'll try and restore and let you know.

    Okay seems like that worked. I didn't have to unlock again just jailbreak. Thanks for the suggestion! You're a iphone life saver!

    Okay I figured out what the original cause of the problem was. Any time I synce my iphone with itunes it does this where it locks my phone when someone calls when it is asleep. Any one had this problem?

    using itunes 7.4.1.2
