Whoops, shoot. I was talking about rebooting my laptop, not my iPhone. Misread the topic. I actually hardly reboot my iPhone.
A few times a week
Several times a month
Whenever I download new apps
Only after it starts misbehaving
After firmware updates (i.e., auto-reboot)
...uh, what's a reboot?
If I have apps that start crashing or I get a dropped call or things just start to seem to take too long to load, I'll restart it. With the latest OS update it's not nearly as often as it was when I got the phone.
If I have an app that crashes or I notice a tremendous amount of stuttering, I'll reboot the device.
I think its ridiculous that the recommendation is to reboot the device every time you install a new app.
On my windows PC I hardly evr reboot when I install a new program and it works just fine.
Apple needs to find a way to do memory allocation better, or make rebooting a whole lot faster, it takes way too long on my 2nd gen iPod Touch.
I switch off the iPhone when I go into the cinema. Realistically, I could change to airplane mode but figure since I have no connection, might as well shut it off - this way I get several reboots per month (roughly the rate I go to see movies).
Otherwise, I rarely reboot unless some app stalls in a bad way, which hasn't happend it a while (fingers crossed).
By the way, I'm using 3G.
Apple devices : iPhone 3G 16GB / iPod Classic 160GB
Headphones currently in use : Audio Technica ATH-ES55 / Audio Technica ATH-ANC7b
IEMs : UE Super.Fi.4vi / Mingo MW-2 (bass version)
I do it several times a Week/Month..
You can't keep a Device in working condition for long hours and expect it to function properly, Freeing memory is secondary.
I turn it off almost every night...my baby needs its rest :P
Only as needed, usually amounts to about once a week or so.
shine on you crazy diamond
haven´t rebooted in weeks now... as long as everything works smoothly I don´t see the need....
I restart mine about twice a day but not because I want/have to, but because of Kingdom Game server timeouts but they should be fixed now lol. now I might reset like once a week maybe? I restore whenever i need to which is usually around once a month because the keyboard starts to lag.in fact, it's starting to lag now. I'll restore later
