My iMessage crashed, I had to reset password and reenter it, now iMessage doesn't fully activate and it won't let me sign into Apple ID for messages. Apple is saying I need to update to 8.1.1.

Might as well update anyway. It fixes some of the bugs and it has a jailbreak, so there's no reason to avoid it.

I have a few. Phone freezes constantly (iPhone5) especially after watching videos or opening an app, weather is missing from notifications in settings, lag on startup after a reboot, it's taking way longer for my lock screen to pop up after hitting home button, crashes on few of my most used apps including mSecure.
New phone is coming tomorrow but I'd like to know if anyone else have any issues.
I do experience these bugs too in my device. I hope apple releases fix on these bugs. :)

I'm still been getting random resprings and well as the spotlight search will give no results.

Are you jailbroken? I started getting a bunch of random resprings all of a sudden today.
No never have been jailbroken. Been having the resprings for awhile which seemed to get a little better with each update. Done the restore thing and is better but is still happening just not as much.

Did you restore to factory settings and was it on 8.1.1? If not, that would likely fix it, but I would try resetting all settings first. I had a few resprings on my stock iPhone 6 on 8.0, but none since updating to 8.0.2. I had frequent resprings on my stock iPhone 5s on early versions on 7.x. That firmware was even buggier than 8.x. At first they were random but then they started occurring when I used the fingerprint scanner. I must have had at least 50 of them. I reset all settings around 7.0.2 and it only happened one more time on that phone they entire year.

Proof that they were resprings and not reboots on both phones was that the fingerprint scanner worked afterwards and full reboots require the passcode.

So try resetting all settings and post your results after a week or so if it fixes it. If it keeps happening right away afterwards, I'd restore to factory settings. It's not a common problem on 8.1.1, so I think you can fix it with one of these.

Yes they were resprings as I can use the fingerprint scanner,and I have restored to factory settings and it still happened a couple of times since but nothing like before. Also have the problem with spotlight search not showing results.
Guess maybe a trip to the Apple Store.

Is this a 6 Plus or a regular 6? What firmware did you restore to factory settings on?

I have a 6 plus and every should be on the latest versions.
Is it a 128 GB? How much free space do you have? It might be that hardware problem that affects the 128 GB Plus. It tends to affect them worse when a large amount of the available space is being used. Apple can run a diagnostic on it and tell you if it's hardware. But I wouldn't take it in until you've restored to factory settings on 8.1.1 and tested it for a while longer.

I don't understand the second part of your reply. What firmware version did you restore to factory settings on?

Sorry I'm on 8.1.1 it is an 128gb with about 75gb available. The resprings have happend after a restore to factory setting. I've taken it to apple and the girl didn't listen or something when I told her that it has been restored. I've been there enough times to know their stock answer to something they can't see or recreate. Evidently the test she ran didn't show hardware problems as all she could say was do a restore and if that don't work bring it back and they would see about replacing the phone. I gave up as I waited there long enough and figured I would just do the restore again. She did say when she ran the diagnostic that everything was up to date which I knew it was.

On thing I forgot to mention was something else my phone has been doing. There are several time I cannot tap an icon or a link and have it launch or whatever. I have to hit the power button to turn the screen off then I can go back and select the icon or link. When it is doing this sometime it is totally frozen and you can't swipe but other times I can swipe left or right up and down and zoom in and out. I just can't tap something and have it launch or whatever until I turn the screen off and back on. Hard resets don't make a difference neither does having other apps running or not.

I still don't know if you restored to factory settings on 8.1.1 or if it was a lower firmware.

Even if you did, you definetly need to do it again now. Don't apply a backup. It could bring these problems back.

Yes I restored to factory settings with 8.1.1 and problem happens with no backup applied. If fact restored twice to 8.1.1.
