same issue, irregularly freezes then the screen either displays vertical lines or goes a shade darker and then proceeds to reboot / resett itself. Seems to be worse when iphone 5 is usuing 3g. really annoying. Any help?

i took my handset into a vodafone store and theyve arranged an exchange for tomorrow. My handset also shows no change in battery level unless i switch the phone on and off, and is horrible to use in general, incredibly "choppy" usage especially when texting etc

You just had a lemon -- same thing happened to me with my first iPhone 4 two years ago. They swapped it for a new unit (they generally keep some in stock that they don't sell for just such emergencies) and everything worked perfectly afterward.

Just set up my appointment with the Apple Store for later today. Hopefully, they will have some replacements in stock so I am not left with a broken phone...Also, I am having the charge issue as well and after speaking with Apple Customer Support, he suggested I restore the iphone through iTunes. If that doesn't work (it didnt) then he said it is a hardware problem and will need to be replaced. Good luck!

I have this problem too.
I had problems with it getting really hot when the battery is charging, and it Frequently freezing and showing the verticle lines then restarting.
The guy at the Apple store said he would not switch my handset and he told me I would have to wipe the phone and start it as new. Even though I want my messages and photos on there.

If you manage to restore it on iTunes then you should be able to restore to your saved files on iCloud (if you used that option). You´ll start with a wiped phone but all your photos and such should be on your back-up on iCloud.

My problem was resolved by Apple Store in a matter of minutes.
Tech confirmed there was a problem and Apple gave me a new phone within 7-days!
No point wasting time trying to fix this problem on your own, the phone will not work. Go to Apple Store and get a new unit!
