    Is Wifi enabled when you try to start Angry Birds?
    On the iPad there was a bug that the game started (black screen) and returned to springboard. I disabled Wifi and the game starts normal. After an update the problem for the iPad version of Angry Birds was solved.
    Perhaps this is also an issue with the iPhone version.

    I have tried it without WiFi, also in Airplane mode and still does the same - does not open.

    Mines the same, Wifi off / Airplane mode - Nothing will let Angry Birds open. I don't want to re-install the app. Took me ages to get past certain levels and I don't want to have to do them again

    Same thing happened to me today. Was playing Angry Birds and the battery was getting low, the 20% warning had just came up, and the phone suddenly reset itself. Now Angry Birds will not open, goes to black screen for a second, then back to the apps page. Reset has not worked. Wi-Fi is off.

    I am way too far into the game to start over with a re-install. PLEASE help!

    Having the same problem.

    Have tried all the suggestions (restarting, resetting iphone, sync'ing, turning wifi off, turning airplane mode on, turning off cellular data, closing the app etc etc).

    I had this Issue too today, I deleted it then "bought" it again from app store, but no worries, it pops up with "you have already purchased this application, press ok to install it for free"

    It works again now

    Hi Buffy - did your completed levels come through?

    I've already finished up to 7-5 and personally don't feel like going through all of them again from the beginning.

    Please let us know?
  • TheSkipster Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    Well I got good news and I got bad news. The good news is I got my Angry Birds back!!
    The bad news is I have to start all over. I got tired of waiting, uninstalled the game and then went back and "bought" it again (don't have to pay anything) and now it works. All previous scores and levels have been wiped clean. I figured starting over is better than not playing at all, besides no one else seemed to come up with a better solution....nothing else worked!!
    Angry Birds here I come........again!!!
  • Boohoo Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    I have all the levels unlocked and I am just trying to get 3 stars etc. I refuse to start over....Do you hear me, I refuse to start over. Somebody PLEASE come up with a way to get it to start again without having to delete the game and reinstall.

  • kskill Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    Bought this game today to see what all the hype was about, and have yet to play it! Every time I try to play it, it crashes while loading. I'm using an iPhone 3G with iOS4.

    You shouldn't be allowed to sell a game that doesn't turn on...
  • Jebjerg Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    I had the same problem on my iPhone as many of you! What I did to fix it was the following:

    1) Downloaded and installed trial version of Total Commander along with addon called T-pot
    2) Plugged the iPhone to the USB and accessed the directory of my iPhone (there are great guides explaning this!)
    3) I located the following files: DataStore., FetchManager. and highscores.lua in the Documents folder under the "Angry Birds"-directory and took a copy!
    NOTE: the directory on my phone was:
    \private\var\mobile\Applications\LONG-RANDOM-ID-NUMBER\Docutments

    You manually have to search through which ID is Angry Birds!

    4) I unstalled Angry Birds
    5) Reinstalled Angry Birds
    6) Found the new ID and copied the backup files back to the iphone.

    All works now - at least this is faster (to me) than replay all the levels

    @Jebjerg
    Could you post the files your talking about? I made a backup of my 'highscores.lua' and reinstalled angry birds. All was fine until I finished a level with a higher score then therefore and the game crashed. This happens every time. Forgot to backup DataStore and Fetchmanager.
    Also found on the internet that settings.lua should be backuped as well. Hope you can help me.
