My iPhone background is on the fritz. At first it will automatically go to the screen where it asks me to slide to turn it off (This happens randomly). Then it will sometimes snap pictures of the screen when it happens to lock. Also the background keeps flashing from black to whatever I was looking at. Please help : /. If not can i exchange it?

Sounds like the home button might be messed up, or the power button. Try restoring the device to factory defaults first. If you're jailbroken, reverse that.

First of all - let's us know what iPhone version, firmware, and are you unlocked/jailbroken?

It's not jailbroken or anything like that. Completely standard iPhone 3g. I tried restoring it to default settings and nothing worked : /. I also tried restoring it to default settings but unfortunately that didn't work either.

Take it into an Apple store and get it replaced.

Oh this sucks mine is doing this also. Mine thinks i am holding down the lock button and it askes me to power off the phone. It will also think that i am turning the ringer down and it will show the line through the bell. I will push the volume up once then it will show it all the way up then the bell with the line through it. Its odd it comes and goes i think i will go to the Apple store today and try to show them my luck the phone wont do it while im at the Apple store. Will they give me crap about my bodyguardz on my phone and if i get a new/referb phone will the one year warrantee that comes with your phone start over?
