Currently Being ModeratedOct 1, 2010 11:25 PM (in response to Matt Hanks)THIS WAS MY PREVIOUS UPDATE
Had a genius appointment last Tuesday, the man in the shop installed their so called "clean" version of 4.1 on my phone, and i was told to go home and set up my phone as a new iphone, and since then i haven't had any reboots, and here are some of my call lengths
32 mins, 38 mins, 7 mins, 9 mins, 11 mins, 8 mins, 10 mins, 24 mins, 13 mins, 18 mins, 8 mins, 11 mins,
which is great improvement on what i had before, i am still ready for the problem to rear its head again, but it is alot better than the usual 6-10 minutes i got before it rebooted before their "clean" update
AND NOW MY FINDINGS
the phone managed to reboot whilst texting a few days back, i put that down to a one off, as it hadnt rebooted in a phone call for over a week, and i'd made long calls too, then last night about 7 minutes into a call the phone rebooted!! It was plugged into the mains though?? hmmm? Im going to book another day off work and go back to Brighton and the Apple store and get it replaced, its just not good enough!!!

Try and get a new phone. I know some people 90 or so pages back had the problem with their new phones but I think on the whole its the best option.
My battery life is better and still no reboots - now 48 hours.
I did have it set up as a new phone but have no restored from my original backup, so fingers crossed all is well.
good luck.MacBook Pro C2D, MacBook C2D, iBook G4, Mac OS X (10.6.4), iPhone replaced and no reboots
Currently Being ModeratedOct 2, 2010 7:11 PM (in response to homer4x4)This now my third post on this topic. I don't post willy nilly with statements like "two days and no reboots" as such is totally irrelavant. My findings through weeks of testing on two phones is below.
1. Revert to 3.13 fixes the rebooting on calls.
2. Battery lasts me over 1 day on 3.13
3. Battery lasts under half a day on 4.2 with same use
4. Signal strength display works properly under 3.13
5. Signal strength under 4.2 clearly wrong as seems random
6. Full reset under 4.2 stops reboots for about 2 days (sometimes)
7. On blutooth usually call error rather than reboot occurs.
This IS a software issue, this much I have proven, replacing phone buys
Time as I have said as I can replicate this non reboot period by restore and
full reset on current phone, or permanently by forced downgrade to 3.13
This is a challenge to Apple to either put-up or call for assistance if you do not
have the expertise to fix this issue or provide a time frame for doing so.

Currently Being ModeratedOct 2, 2010 11:52 PM (in response to nicwilson58)Nic, which 4.2 version are you referring to. In 4.2 beta 2 I have had no reboots sofar.MacBook, Mac OS X (10.5.1)

Currently Being ModeratedOct 4, 2010 2:44 AM (in response to homer4x4)I posted a few pages earlier about my reboot during calls problem- well last wk I phoned 02 & was told to restore to factory settings & sync my info back to my phone- which made no difference. Today I phoned 02 again and explained the situation & they are going to exchange my iPhone 3GS with an iPhone 4 by courier tomorrow !! Fantastic result from 02. My phone is 9 months old & on a business contract so still under warranty. 02 did say the official word from Apple is for us the customer to have to pay £30 to have our phones sent off to be mended !! Outrageous !! Fingers crossed my new phone turns up tomorrow & I don't need to join a different iPhone 4 thread !iPhone 3G, iOS 4
Currently Being ModeratedOct 4, 2010 12:10 PM (in response to Angelique101)On a few weeks ago, i wad reading this list. I use to had problems with my iPhone 3GS after install the iOS 4.0 software the past june 21, after two months with the issue, i've had researching And the past saturday i can fix the problem.
How? You just do, change the battery. Apparently the iOS shoots the temperature sensor from the iphone 3GS battery And this cause constants reboots On the terminal. If you change the battery this may change the value of the temperature sensor And avoid the resets.
For example, after i do That. I can write this post in this page with my iPhone, so because before i cant read nothing And so never do each thing with my loving cellphone.Iphone 3GS, iOS 4
Currently Being ModeratedOct 4, 2010 2:45 PM (in response to homer4x4)Had a reboot with 4.2 beta 2 today. Although it seems to appear less frequent than before. Had about 40 calls with no reboot.MacBook, Mac OS X (10.5.1)
Currently Being ModeratedOct 4, 2010 3:32 PM (in response to crodslon)Too bad it's not as simple as that. How do you account for those that got a brand new 3GS replacement (which means brand new battery) that still has the same issue.Mac Pro Intel Xeon Quad 2.8, 6GB ram, Superdrive (internal), Mac OS X (10.6.3), 2x500GB, 1x320GB, 1x1TB SATA (int) HDDs, Radeon HD2600 256MB, LaCie FW burner
Currently Being ModeratedOct 4, 2010 8:30 PM (in response to Eric Shawn2)Good question, i've thinking in it, but in my case, recently my iPhone finished your warranty And i can done. In your case continue waiting or get a replacement.Iphone 3GS, iOS 4
Currently Being ModeratedOct 5, 2010 2:46 AM (in response to homer4x4)I have the same problem ever since i upgraded to 4.0 and dont know how i can fix this issue, my calls last between 4-8 minutes with occasionally 10.
dont know what to do!iphone3GS, iOS 4
Currently Being ModeratedOct 5, 2010 6:33 AM (in response to homer4x4)The issue seem to be related to poor field.
So, if the Genius Bar have a good field (like the one near to me), apple don't replace the iphone just because they can't see the reboot. And they NEVER will see the reboot until they try it in a 100% field!!
The only thing I can do is forget to buy another apple product!pc, iOS 4
Currently Being ModeratedOct 5, 2010 9:22 AM (in response to homer4x4)Made a >12 minute call today with replacement iPhone and no problems. Longest call since receiving new phone.MacBook Pro C2D, MacBook C2D, iBook G4, Mac OS X (10.6.4), iPhone that finds being a phone a 'TURN OFF'!!!!!!!
Currently Being ModeratedOct 5, 2010 9:28 AM (in response to Matt Hanks)Keep us posted Matt. My last two replacements worked find for a couple of days, then old issues started popping up again. Not as much, and seems to be random. But still happens none the less, and again, none of this ever happened prior to iOS 4.Mac Pro Intel Xeon Quad 2.8, 6GB ram, Superdrive (internal), Mac OS X (10.6.3), 2x500GB, 1x320GB, 1x1TB SATA (int) HDDs, Radeon HD2600 256MB, LaCie FW burner
