I've noticed my iPhone 3GS randomly restarts. I'm running version 4.0.1.
This sometimes happens when I'm watching YouTube videos. However, it never happens when I'm using any other applications.

It's not such a huge problem because it only restarts rarely, but I'm ALWAYS watching a YouTube video when it happens.

Any ideas?

Agreed.

The 4.0.x software was really buggy. I couldn't get YouTube to work at all on my JB 3gs with 4.0. Update to 4.2.1 via iTunes and see if the problem goes away...

Wait until you update the firmware before you feel stupid, because, if it doesn't work, then we don't know what we're talking about...
