How to stop my iPhone from constantly restarting?

So basically if I shut off my iPhone 3GS 32g manually within seconds it will be turning itself back on again AND proceed to be on for about 2 minutes THEN shut itself off again. This continues repeatedly until I quickly go to settings and reset the iPhone (losing all my personal setting, not my contacts and apps.). This is INCREDIBLY ANNOYING. Also, I have never had battery issues and my battery life lasts a long time so I don't believe that is the issue. I have researched this question but most everyone says something similar but Ive never found the same problem and most of the answers for those are the battery.

Its 3 years old. It's never been wet or dropped hard. I'm running 5.0.1 .

I have run out of idea...

Can you give us a little info on your phone? How old is it? Which iOS are you running? Any water damage or hard drops?


Have you tried going back to iOS 4? iOS 5 is supposed to work with the 3GS but it wasn't exactly designed for use with it. That's unfortunately the only idea I have if there hasnt been any other abuse.

Reformat your phone and don't choose to restore from backup. It could be some rogue settings that are causing it to do this. Use it for a bit as if you had just got it with only factory settings and if it doesn't give you any problems then it should be clear that it is something with your data.
