Every once in a while I am on safari cruising around, and suddenly I cant "click" on links any longer. Everything else works (scrolling, other buttons on the phone) just clicking links stops, and I have to reboot my comp...I mean iPhone.

Same thing happens to me, about once a week. I've zoomed ALL the way in and it still won't click. I just reboot and move on...

Yup Just like Colley said, I zoom in I zoom out I zoom it all around, I do the hokey poky, reboot my iPhone and it works again. Just curious if I am the only one, which I am not so good.

Same thing happens here about once every 10 days or so. I'm on Version 1.1.2.

I've found I can rectify the problem by just turning the iPhone all the way off and then turning it back on again.

Yeah I would say every 10 days or so for me too. Sometimes more sometimes less. still beats my blackjack crash rate!

And I bet the reboot is at least twice as fast as your blackjack, too.

Yes it happened to me as well. But I have a solution without rebooting. Next time just press the link and leave your finger there until the phone recognizes the touch. I had to leave me finger on the link for 3-4 seconds. Once the phone recognizes the touch it goes back to normal.

in stead of rebooting the phone - does forcing a quit on Safari do the trick?

ie. when in Safari - hold down the home button for about 5,6 seconds.

Same thing happens to me every now and then I just turn off and on... I think it may have something to do with the amount of loading needed just overloading ya know
