Hi, did you ever solve this problem?
My 1 year old -- ha! one month out of warranty -- iPhone 4 has been having a nearly identical problem over the past few days.
It started by dying completely so I had the battery replaced, thinking it was simply battery issue.
It then worked again for a moment but started doing exactly what you describe, going through a reset cycle (longer than 30 seconds but who's counting). And it felt quite warm.
Did hard reset, plugged into wall charger and MBP USB but the new battery wouldn't even get a full charge (a whopping 92% after nearly two days). It would even lose battery when plugged in if I opened an app. And all the while plugged in, if I left the phone on, it would cycle through these resets. So I turned it off to try to charge it.
Now suddenly, it's dead again. Totally black, and hard reset does nothing. Up until two days ago there was nothing wrong whatsoever with this phone! And I hadn't even installed a new app that could be the root of the issue. No idea whatsoever what caused this.
Any help would be much appreciated!!

I have the same issue as #2 on your list. My iPhone 4s only a couple months old is now doing this. After updating and installing 5.1.1 my iPhone started to reset itself every 30 seconds or so so im not sure what to do. I have tried hard-resets and every other way i have thought and read about and still no luck. I guess i can let the battery die out and see what happens when i plug it in next but i really wish i could get some kind of answer as to what may be going on. If anyone, Apple representative or other community member could help i would love any kind of advice or assistance. This thing is still new and under warranty so i want some answers. Thanks in advance.

No katinparis I NEVER solved this problem & since then I've been to AppleCare been given a replacement & now I've got a whole new set of problems, Oh except this replacement iPhone 4 still restarts at random where I've had to do like 20+ hard restart alreddy & I've got to tak it back to AppleCare, oh what a surprize.....
Lets tell Apple that we the customers are not happy buy NOT BUYING APPLE ANYMORE & Telling Apple that if they don't fix their continueous problem with their junk that we the customers, soon to be Ex EX EX EX Customers will NEVER Buy Apple Product ever again Ha?

Claiudiu how would test a battery from a friend if opening the iPhone or any other product Voids the warrenty on that Apple product, what a genius idea you must work for Apple I think trying to hide Apple product issues from the public

I Only NOW have All the Problems Solved BUT ONLY after having my iPhone 4 Replaced Twice by AppleCare, So x3 iPhone 4's later & traveling 1380km total up & back Travel plus fuel that they DON'T Pay for ha?
Make Sure You Get & Pay for the APPLECARE Protection Plan or otherwise this would have been more of a PAIN in the Butt than it already was, U can bet on that.
THAT GOODNESS I NOW HAVE AN iPHONE 4 THAT I ONLY NOW HAVE THAT WORKS & HASN'T GIVEN ME NOT A ONE PROBLEMS AT ALL Unlike the first x2 iPhones 4's that had to be replaced by the APPLECARE Protection Plan?

Yesterday my dad took apart my iphone 4 to replace the screen as it was cracked. i'd been using the phone all day since that band then the battery died and once plugged in to charge its started rebooting itself. i left it plugged in over night to see if there was any luck the next morning and it had the charging symbol but it stayed red. i showed my dad and he looked online and found that inside the phone there is something at the bottom left of the battery that hadnt been put back in properly or had slipped out of place. he put it back together properly and now it works fine again, this might relate to anyone that has had their phone taken apart recently, hope this helps.
