    Why does my iPhone do this?
    Hi.
    I have a iPhone 3Gs, and I am not sure if this is too much of a bad thing, but sometime when I turn it on, it will turn on, and then turn off real fast. I do see the picture of the background and the lock screen, but for some reason it just turns off. I only press the button once, so I did not turn it off.

    Other then that it works fine, just want mo make sure there is nothing real bad with my phone.

    Specs:
    27" i7 iMac, 24" iMac, 13" Macbook Air, iPhone 5 & 5S, iPod Nano 7th Gen, iPad 2 16GB WiFi, iPad 3
    Once it turns off, does pressing the button wake it back up? How often does it do this? I know the silent/vibrate switch on the 3G and 3GS were prone to becoming loose and causing issues, but I wouldn't think the power button would be prone to the same thing..

    It might do this once a day. The silent button is not loose at all, and I usually have it on silent because I am in school. But yeah, when I turn it on, it just turns itself off, and then I turn it on again, and it works fine. I am not sure if it is a big problem, or not, but I am just wondering why my iPhone does this. Thanks for responding.

    I just have a 3g and I push the power button up top and after a while it goes to the lock screen. Never had it turn off. Will search google and see if there is anyone else with your issue.
