    I also had this harp sound problem. I've fixend by logging in using both iPad and iPhone at the same time, the iPad app crashes after ten minutes or so, the iPhone keeps running untill i'm logged in. I got a sweet bonus of 750 donuts (Thanks EA!), it's a bit of a hastle, but the bonus makes it worth while.

    Hope this helps someone!

    I have the 4S and I just got in like I stated above.

    Please note I didn't say it was impossible - I got in with the iPad 3. The iPhone 5 merely increases the chance for success.

    It's a glitch. There is no hard or fast rule - at least one hasn't surfaced yet :P

    Well, for god knows what reason, my 100th-plus attempt to log in late this afternoon (after trying all day for my 11th day straight) magically logged me in. I'm happy, but also pissed. Not only did I NOT get ANY bonus donuts at all, but I figure I've lost in 11 days of non-productivity about 3-5 million dollars, 2-3 thousand valentines, and the 1000 or so donuts I would have expected per other's experiences. Grrrr. At least I'm finally in, but in my mind I'm hearing the sound of Marge growling...... MMMMMMMMMMMM

    I cannot * believe this. I had someone unlock me on Saturday, played for the last two days without issue. this morning el chemistry finished building, I leveled up, played for a bit, and now when I try to launch the game again the goddamn harps are BACK. only this time, instead of having a single harp sound that eventually layers I too of itself, it starts with three harps at once. and sometimes there's a glitch that sounds like a millisecond of the strings from the start of the in game music.

    * you EA. * you so much.

    After being locked out since the evening of Feb 15th, I finally got back in... Just had to go to an Apple store and commandeer one of their iPhone 5's for about an hour :roll: . Got 902 donuts from the glitch.

    Thanks Apple for letting me borrow one our your in store iPhone 5's for an hour. No thanks to EA for sitting on their arses for so long with no fix.

    Well after being knocked out by the harp for 2 weeks+, I tried again this morning and logged straight in. No need for any fixes, patches, iPhone 5 store hijacking, just logged straight in - so it must be (or is currently being) fixed.

    When I did log in, I got the upgrade bonus of ONE donut - thank you very much EA :evil:

    Have tried to re-log in a couple of times since and seems to load up straight away again as like nothing ever happened - hope the same is starting to occur for other harp effected players.

    Definitely find yourself an iPhone 5 if you can. After starting the harp on the 15th, I borrowed one last night. In about 15 minutes the harp sounds started coming in 2 quick pairs, shortly thereafter I was in and played the bonus game for at least a half hour. About 920 donuts later my town is in good shape, and my old iPad is working fine again.

    Ha ha ha ha.. I feel that n0iseb0t!!!

    I finally was able to log in after being locked out for 4 days on the harp thing on Saturday morning. Played in the morning and Sunday morning started building the Burns Manor to finish this morning. When the building finished.. of course I leveled up for the bonus level... got 2 donuts.. got the confirmation of the prize and BAAAAAM!! Harp Freeze!!! Doh!!!!!

    So suffice to say.. I am back on the "Harp Club".. missed you guys. :?

    I had the same problem and then I tried something that actually worked for me.

    1. Log out of the game, then close the game.
    2. Go to www.ea.com and log in with your Simpsons log in.
    3. Close browser once signed in (do not log out of www.ea.com).
    4. Open Simpsons game and log in.
    5. Wait a few seconds ( may hear the harp once or twice), just wait.
    6. If it doesn't work, the repeat steps 1-5

    Good luck.

    Leveled up again tonight, no harps so far, maybe the latest update fixed it? Was kind of hoping for the bonus donut glitch, oh well

    Would anyone be willing to do me the huge favor of trying to unlock me?

    This is really getting old. :cry:

    Hi all. Long time lerker just chiming in to say I've just got the dreaded harp bug for the first time. It's only been about an hour and I'm peeking already. I hope they have a real fix soon.
