I have an Acer Aspire 2930 laptop running Fedora 19. Whenever I plug and unplug my iPhone 3GS it freezes, even if I securely remove it first. When that happens the only option I'm left with is rebooting.

That is quite a problem for me because my iPhone cable is old and makes bad contact. Does anyone have an idea why that might be happening?

It's possible you have a kernel panic which doesn't show in graphical desktop. Connect your phone, switch to text console by Ctrl+Alt+F2, and then unplug your iPhone. If there's a kernel error you should see it there.
