    Default Apps not working???
    This my be a noob question, but I have only had my iPhone for a couple of weeks. Sometimes, when I tap on one of the Apps that I have, it goes to the start screen and then just goes back to the main screen. Any ideas or help?

    Sounds like the old "setting Permissions" problem, I'm sure that's not the problem.
    Have you restarted your phone?

    Are these app store apps? or from Cydia and/or Installer

    "Quote from SundayDuffer"
    Install iCommander from Cydia...change permission straight from there on your Iphone.
    If you dont see iCommander in Cydia..it just means that you havent added the source yet.
    the repo source should be from Hack&Dev.org (Index of /apt/)

    They are from the app store. Right now I am just getting free apps...Shazam, MySpace, Google Earth...things like that. I have not gotten into apps from the internet yet.

    Is your phone jailbroken? And have you made any file mods to your system folder?

    You'll find out about all that later, it's not part of the problem then.

    Might be an authorization problem. Remove all of the Appstore Apps from your iPhone.

    1. In iTunes, go to Store -> Deauthorize computer.
    2. Sync your iPhone in iTunes.
    3. Go back to Store -> Authorize computer.
    4. Put the Apps back on your phone.

    After that, hopefully you'll be good to go.
