You may have already done this but do a reset of your touch.

Sims 3 on the iPhone is freakin’ AWESOME!!!  The crashes can get a bit annoying, but overall it’s great!  I’ve found that if I really want to play, I just do a quick respring and that frees up the memory to play continuously.  (I’m jailbroken.)  I’ve got Tiger Woods for the iPhone as well, and I’m truly impressed by what I’m seeing!

You need to restart your iphone/ ipod touch before you play it. Mine didn’t crash after I did that.

Mine was crashing too - learned all I have to do is reset it: hold down button on top until it says power off. Slide to power off, then turn it back on. It worked for me.
