Wow. That's pretty crazy. I wonder how it could do that, and if it were the app, wouldn't it be more widespread?

Thanks for the update!

I'm going to have to look into this and see if I can get it to reset mine like that...

If I hold the lock key and home button for ten seconds will I lose any data? I believe this is called a hard reset or a respring maybe ?
Thanks

You will not lose any data doing a hard reset. Hold both buttons until you see the Apple logo.

Thats called a soft reset isn't it? A hard reset is a restore, IIRC and that will loose data! ;)

This is a hard reset. Hard reset and restore are different.

Just make sure you sync the iPhone ever so often, so there's a backup.
