My Iphone is full of problems. I have to restore it 3X a month. Yes 3X a month and I'm not kidding. Yep is pretty buttoned up. As I type, I'm restoring my phone. Guess what? You have to be connected to the internet to get permission from the mother ship to restore. It's up to Uncle Steve to allow you to restore or not. If you don't have permission, your Iphone is a stylish brick. I'm sure Droids don't have such controls. I think I'm through with Iphones.
Wow, I know several people with iPhones and none of them have ever had to do a restore. Sounds like the phone itself could be faulty
