iPhone Slowing Down

December 15th, 2009 @

Today my iPhone got stuck. I went to unlock it and it took what seemed like minutes to respond. I had voicemail but after fifteen minutes of waiting I gave up.

The solution was simple. The iPhone just needed a quick reboot. I held down the power button for about five seconds and then slid the block to shut down. After I turned it back on my iPhone sprang back to life.
