this is getting very frustrating when you open up apps and closes back to home screen. Also frustrating if you have to restore the apps will be gone.

Since 2.1 I have not had any problem with crashing apps. The only change I can attribute to this is I now "ONLY" load and install apps from iTunes and sync them over to the phone. This includes updates.

Try it

Try downloading a app from the phone that worked for me.

2.1 virgin no JB here, could it be because I switch from E to 3G to conserve battery?

I still get some apps that crash. Generally news apps like NY Times. I am on 2.1. I can live with this as I don't have the 2.0.2 problem of all non Apple apps crashing to the home screen.

As soon as I have one that crashes, I reboot the phone. That clears it up.

Same here.

Yesterday the phone was being all slow, apps would freeze, crash, not let me exit by holding and pressing the home button, etc, I held sleep and home, reset the phone and it fixed everything.

Try a HARD reboot. Press and hold the on/off and home buttons at the same time. You will see a slider to turn off but keep both buttons pushed until the phone shuts down. Wait a couple seconds and then push the on/off button. You will get the white Apple logo and it will stay there a few which will make you nervous. Just patiently wait and soon you will see your unlock screen. This has worked for me when I have had that problem with apps. Good luck!
