IPhone Using safari - unexpectedly quits

Every time i use either safari after a few screen selections for websites, the safari quits and returns me back to the main screen. It is now also starting to happen with iPod feature I have tried clearing the cache, cookies and history, but to no avail. Several friends who also have iPhones said it was my typing, but when they tried it did the same thing. Any suggestions would be of great help

Re: iPhone Using safari - unexpectedly quits

I had the same issue with Safari and iPod quitting unexpectedly back to the Main Screen. I purchased my iPhone a week ago and started to notice this condition after about 4 days. I thought it might be the crystal protective film that I put on the screen. I removed it with no change. I tried to power the iPhone off. See the link and use the "Restart" tab.

This seems to have resolved the issue for now? I had a particular website that was crashing with regularity. No issue now. Same with iPod. Could it be that simple?

Hope this helps everyone that is having this issue.

3 gs iphone working fine, clicked on safari , looking at website then it froze and now cannot move from the page or use the app at all , having to use the google app, safari now useless

Go to your setttings and open the Safari Option. Use the three options grouped together but on individual rows, "Clear History", "Clear Cookies", "Clear Cache".
Then do a hard reset on your Phone:
  • Press the "home button" and the "off button" at the same time, until the device goes off.
Turn your iPhone back on and see if this has helped. If it does not we have several other options.

I cannot connect to YouTube,safari crashes and i have no sound. Everything was ok a few days ago. My iphone is new 2 weeks. I feel like screaming pls help

Hello belito33,

Try this first:
Press and hold the Sleep/Wake (on top of the iphone) button for a few seconds until the red slider appears, then slide the slider. The phone will turn off. Then, push and hold it again, until the phone comes back on.

If that doesn't work, try this:
Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears. This will do a "hard reset" and should bring your iphone back to life!

If these solutions don't work for you, take your phone back, you have 30 days to return it for a brand new phone.

Best regards,
