It is freezing randomly and acting ver strange. When I perform a cold reboot it will perform normally then eventually slow and then freeze.

    It seems like something may have corrupted on your phone.  Try a clean restore and see what happens.

    I am also having this issue.  iPhone 5S, iOS 7.0.2 stock.  I have attempted doing a hard reset and a clean restore, and am still having this issue.  Starting to get really frustrating when I tap one thing, wait, and nothing happens.  Even more frustrating is when I'm typing, and I end up going back a screen when I tap a letter.  Or send a message before it is finished due to the tap being recognized as me hitting send when I am trying to tap a letter on the opposite side of the screen.  I've had this issue since I got the 5S on 9/20, and have been waiting for it to be fixed in 7.0.1 and 7.0.2.  Does anyone have any other tricks I can try before I take it back and trade for another phone?

    I am having similar problems also.  Sometimes it will not respond at all or it gets stuck looking for new mail and I have to do a soft reset.  This has happened quite a few times and it is getting tired.  My 4s did not have these issues.  I'm hoping an update will come through soon that will address this.

    I'm having the same problem.  I notice it when I go to text someone.  The keyboard take 5-15 seconds to respond when I tap a letter, then the messaging app crashes.  If I re-open messages, it does the same thing, and the messages app crashes after 15-30 seconds.  I have tried to open several other apps after this happens, but they crash too.  A soft reset fixes the problem temporarily, but that gets really old.
