I've now seen this issue happen twice on my iPhone this morning - I'm listening to an album (Daughtry) and browsing the web (the Motley Fool) at the same time. Suddenly, the iPhone stops playing the music after about 10 minutes - in the middle of a song. I'm not sure if there is a setting somewhere that I'm unaware of, or if this is a bug. Both times seem to have close to when I single tapped on the screen while in Safari - but did not hit a link. Anyone else see anything similar?

Best Regards,

Jeff

    This issue happened all last night for me. I tried to pinpoint when and how long, but there was no repeatable pattern. Simply put, when browsing the web (on EDGE), the music will unexpectedly stop playing anywhere from 1 - 10 minutes. This must be a bug.

    It's happening to me as well, I restored my iPhone and it seemed (so far) to have worked. Apple - come out with a fix for this!!!!

    This happened to me once, then without restoring or resetting it worked fine. Safari kept working ok, but when I switched to the iPod app, it had "reset", so it's probably what actually "crashed" with this bug.

    It is a difficult one to pinpoint, but it does happen. The good thing is iTunes sends crash info, I ask that everyone allows it to do this, it's what Apple most needs right now, to know which are the top issues and be able to fix them. Sync often...

    Same issue here.

    The issue has become more frequent, and I can't even get through a full song while browsing the internet.

    EXTREMELY disappointing.

    I'm also having this same problem while browsing with safari over wifi and listening to music. It doesn't seem to be related to any specific song. I'm assuming this is some sort of bug or memory issue.

    I have this same problem. In addition to music stopping while browsing the web, my music stops while in cover flow mode and scrolling through my albums. This is very sad! I was incredibly excited. Hopefully Apple is reading these boards and reacting to our problems.

    Thanks,

    Hi all,

    I just fixed this by turning the phone on and off. Hold down top button + home button for about 5 seconds and swipe to turn off. Click top or home (can't remember which) to turn it back on. This seems to have fixed the problem. The ipod functionality must have bugged out and then reset when I cycled the power.

    Hope this works for everyone.

    Having the same problem myself (8GB over Wifi). I'll give the power cycling a shot.

    Figured there'd already be a post here about it

    I haven't had this issue. I was in my local italian (pizza) restaurant this afternoon and was listening to music and browsing the web on edge. I went for at least 20 minutes with no problems (then my dinner came

    This has also happened to me numerous times. Very difficult to pinpoint exactly the cause. Always in browser while listening to music. The hard reset of the iPhone does the trick to solve the problem but of course that is a temporary fix. I am sure apple is aware of this. I agree with the recommendation from another poster to sync with iTunes often. That will provide useful feedback to those at apple to fix the bugs.... Regardless of some bugs I am totally impressed with this crackberry killer! I am going to need some AA (Appleholics Anonymous) LOL

    I know this may not have any helpful info, but hopefully more posts = more apple attention (fingers crossed). I too am having this problem (tried restarting and resetting multiple times). I'm guessing its a software stability issue (maybe tied to memory usage)... who knows, but i want it fixed cause i love everything else about my iphone and i just wanna enjoy it. (hint HINT apple)
