    strange. are you using a 3G? there are numerous reported problems with 3.1 and the iphone 3G. if a restore to 3.1 doesn't fix it, restore to 3.0.1 and hope for 3.2

    and i upgraded.. then i restored to 3.1 and its acting like this.. so idk

    the 3GS can't be downgraded, the 3G can. like I said, you should try another restore (not upgrade!) in itunes and - if possible - set your phone up as "a new phone" and not "restore from backup" if iTunes asks you to (you will lose contacts, texts, calender entries, notes, app savedata etc., so be careful!). if that doesn't solve the problem go back to 3.0.1 and see if that helps

    My 3G is doing the same thing ever since I updated to 3.1. I thought it was my battery at first. Then really looked into it, and when the screen goes black, you can take a screen shot and it shows the black screen. Mine does this quite frequently.

    ok so i went back to 3.0.1 and jailbroke it..
    i noticed that my springboard crashes sometimes and my phone goes into safemode.. my phone has never gone into safemode when it wasnt jailbroken so i am guessing that is the reason my screen just went black in 3.1

    and now that i figured that out.. what could be the cause of my sb crashing?

    jailbreak normally doesn't cause that behaviour, so it's really hard to say. do you have any apps installed? especially stuff like winterboard or intelliScreen can cause crashes. but NORMALLY that doesn't happen ...

    cycorder
    lockinfo
    ssh
    toggle ssh
