I always have to restore the software and the firmware on my Iphone 3gs. After doing this, it works correctly for a few days, then I have to go thru the process again. I bought the phone used. Does anyone know why it does this or what part needs to be fixed(replaced) to correct this? Thanks.

???

You might want to give some sort of a clue as to what is wrong with it and why you need (or think you need) to restore it every few days.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

At times it will not turn on. Sometimes just a blank screen. Other times it says it's need to be synced before it can be used then the sync is unsuccessful and says that the software needs to be reinstalled.
