    Try the basic from the manual:

    Restart - you have tried.



    If this fails to resolve, then you likely have a hardware issue.

    You would have to contact the official service provider in your country for iphone.

    Same problem here - I've done the restarts (5 times in 3 days), the full restore, etc. but it comes back. But I found this thread ( where apparently doing a Restore All Settings under Settings\General seemed to work for a user named robbbb1. Trying it now. Fingers crossed.

    Mine wasn't related to the Zagg InvisibleShield I had on the phone. So far, no problems in 2.5 days since I did the Restore All Settings. Whew.
