Yes. It’s late considering I’ve already shown why iPhone OS 3.1 sucks.  But, to stay trueish to the tech stuff floating on the intertubes I realized I should post what Apple considers an update. Can you tell that I am pissed about 3.1? Ok. Good, because I am not –not (that’s a double negative if you didn’t pay attention.)

For what it’s worth:

iPhone OS 3.1 Non-Responsive

with 8 comments

I updated my phone to iPhone OS 3.1 yesterday, since then my phone randomly becomes non-responsive.  I did some research and found that others are having the same issue on the Apple forums.  The phone randomly stops responding to anything, neither the home button nor lock button are recognized.  The only way out is by performing a hard reset.  This is very frustrating since I don’t know if it’ll shut off (assuming it’s shutting off, I don’t know what’s happening) in the middle of the night–it’s my alarm clock.

There’s a video below showing that the phone won’t do anything. I didn’t shut off the phone and make it look like it’s non-responsive, what would be the point of that?  I did notice the phone locks up after a it’s been jerked around; that makes me wonder if the accelerometer is causing an issue. Anyway, if you’re having the same issue post it in the Apple forum and comment below.

In case you’re wondering, it’s an iPhone 3G.
