    Can't get phone out of sleep mode sometimes after 3.1 update?

    This has happened to me twice now. I upgraded to 3.1. I press the home button,and nothing,phone does not come on. I then try the power button,nothing,just a black screen. I am not jailbroken. Then I wait awhile and the phone is fine. No clue what is going on. Has this happened to anyone else?

    Yes, this happens to me about 3-4 times a day and its annoying me. When the phone finally does come out of sleep mode, it shows 0 bars next to the ATT sign and 3G is not there either. About 5 seconds later it goes to 5 bars and 3G icon shows. This has never happened to me until I went to 3.1. I tried to restore it and same thing happens.

    I have iPhone 3g with 3.1 not JB.

    This has happened to my wifes 3G, but never to my 3Gs. I did a clean update and started fresh and my wifes was updated, leaving her info intact. This might be the issue, or the 3G is struggling with 3.1.

    Mine does this as well. I've found that if I hold down the home and power buttons after 10 - 15 seconds, the phone will reboot and is back to life. The Apple store replaced one phone but the replacement did the same thing after I installed 3.1.

    It is definitely an issue with 3.1 and hopefully it gets fixed because we cannot revert to 3.0

    Interesting you should mention this, because it happened to me, too, just last night. I held down the Sleep/Wake and Home buttons, and the phone eventually rebooted. It's been fine since then.

    At first I thought it might be battery related, but when the phone rebooted, it was still almost at full charge.

    I've got a totally unmodified 8GB 3g running 3.1.

    Glad (?) it's not just me.

    Yep, had to reboot my phone and its ok now.
    Happening to lots of people. Getting very annoying.
    People who have no idea that they have to reboot their phone are going to be sitting around for hours thinking what the hell is wrong

    yep, happend twice this week on my 8gb 3G. Never happened before i upgraded to 3.1 The only way i've gotten out of it is to hold power and home till it reboots.

    Hope theres a fix for this soon. I'm thinking that 3.1 was released because people kept begging for it, not because it was ready.

    I had this happen a few times on friday. I am assuming when someone tries to call, when this happens the phone will not wake up. I hope this is addressed quickly, I can't depend on my phone for work in this state.
