Question about Apple iPhone 3G
My iphone dialer crashes after I open it. When I open the phone app it just freezes on the dial pad for 3-5 sec them it shuts down and goes back to the home screen. I have here it was caused by a program called Kate that I installed. I restored by my phone is still jailbroken and it still has the same problem. I removed the Kate program with installer and I still have the same problem. Any ideas? Thanks
If after the jailbreak you can't make dial calls because the phone dialer freezes and goes back to the main menu, try this:
1- Uninstall Kate from Installer: this is what everyone recommends, seems to work for a lot of people but didn't work for me.
2- Then go to Installer again and uninstall these apps:
A) Mobile enhancer
B) RIP DEV preferences
3- Reboot your iPhone.
That's what I did and got my dial pad back again.

I got the same problem and fixed by accident.
go to settings-> RiP Dev,
disable all KATE functions.
then keep going, get into KATE, disable it.

If you've installed Ripdev, go to
Ripdev (appears after Photos in the list)
RiP Dev Products
Licenses - Kate
Purchase a license (or use the trial)
Your phone will work after doing this.
