    Its best to make an appointment, otherwise you might have to wait...several hours. You can make an appointment online.

    I have the same problem, although it occurred before and since I updated to IOS 4.x

    I don't have to Hard Reset, which is fortunate, just pushing the on/off button usually works.

    I have tried resetting iPhone, deleting all apps etc... but, it still happens.

    The weird thing is, my wife's phone is identical and it doesn't happen.

    My phone is out of warranty, but even if it wasn't, not sure what could be done... it is so intermittent!

    It is so Frustrating and annoying...

    It is putting me off, buying the iPhone 4 or the iPad.
