    Unhappy Inserted Sim = Frozen iPhone
    Every time I insert my sim card, my jb iphone freezes. Everything worked fine until last night after I made a few uninstalls from Rock. If I don't insert the sim, all features work fine except I do not have phone or sms functionality. Pls help!

    Try rebooting,Sync with iTunes and if all these didnot fix it,Try reseting one by one under Reset.Reset on a jailbroken iPhone is not recomended but if you could you may not have to restore. And beware of Rock and Don't install Rock again.even try to avoid apps using Rock extensions.Rock is associated with Problems.

    Hmm I don't use rock exclusively, but I don't have any issues with it. Try resetting just network stuff. If you click reset everything it's essentially like restoring your phone. What did you uninstall?

    Yes. I have reset multiple times (~12) and every time the unit works fine until I insert the sim. It tries to reboot a few seconds after the bars show up. Then it just freezes. I try resetting with sim inserted but it never gets past the lock screen - always trying to reboot.

    btw - Thanks for the heads-up regarding Rock.

    I know how to hard reset, but how do you reset just certain items (pls explain).

    I wanted to free up some memory so I started taking out stuff I installed previously like SBSettings, MultiIcon Mover, Categories, Backgrounder, Themes, and a couple of others I don't recall.

    What do you mean by "resetting one by one under reset"?

    Joe,

    I'm having an exact problem. I too removed some apps from cydia or rock and now my iPhone freezes if the SIM card is inserted. Please let me know if you got yours fixed. I'm trying to fix mine. If I figure it out I'll post here.

    Thanks,

    I ended up updating to 3.1.3 using iTunes so I can use the phone for now as I need the phone. I might either jb it or get a new model iPhone and be done with it.
