The Sims 3 Technical Issues

Ok, so I am a little along the ways with my Sim that I have created, im Vice Pres in Politics, have the 3rd upgraded house, I have a wife, I have a ton of stuff unlocked blah blah blah.

My question is, as of lately, my game crashes ALL THE F*CKING TIME. No matter what I do, no matter how many times i free up memory, no matter how many times I restart my iTouch, after about 3 or so minutes of playing, my game crashes. It saves whatever happened up to that point fortunately, but it is really lame to have to restart up the app, only for it to crash in like 3 minutes. I don't get it... Anyone else having this issue? It happens when I walk around in my house, talk to people, fish, walk down the f*cking street, kiss my wife, visit someones house, etc. Basically it happens no matter what I do, and its to the point where I can't even play it anymore. I am just wondering if I am the only one... and what I should do. I guess I have to contact EA? I dont know wtf to do.

Nah I have the 2nd gen iTouch with the 3.0 update but this was going on before I updated. It just seems worse with the new update though. Hope they get this fixed soon..

It happens to everyone, even after restarting. EVERYONE's Sims 3 game crashes all the time. It's been happening for quite sometime now with no patches to fix it.

I just wanted to make sure that it wasn't just me. Kind of making me upset that it is running so sh!tty, especially for the $ we put in it. *sigh* Thanks for your responses everyone.

Yeah this happen to me regularly too. Probably because of those jailbreaks app that are eating up memory on the background. Eg: Backgrounder, Winterboard, etc.
