    I can't reboot my on/off button is knackered, the phone is constantly on.
    That wouldn't be the problem would it??

    I had exactly same issue, but on my iPad. My iPad had been constantly on or in standby for a few weeks and turning it off overnight solved the problem. It probably just needs a rest every so often. Not sure if its was the same issue as you have on your iPhone, but it sounds like it.

    Might be an issue if you can't turn it off though.

    I have/had this, i thought it was around the time Google got annoyed(again) with Apple, and changed the coding or something.
    One day = playing youtube fine, next day = "device not supported" or some such.
