    This usually occurs when my phone is charging, but not always. I go to pick up my phone after walking on my carpeted floor (I also live in a very dry climate), and static electricity discharged to the phone causes an instant reboot. Is this normal?

    Also, my phone does have a case on it, but I'm not sure if that makes a difference.

    Thanks!

    Evidently the device doesn't like getting zapped, so I would try to avoid doing so before you break it.
    Perhaps discharge yourself somewhere before touching the device.

    I suggest getting a humidifier. They're not expensive, not expensive to run and can help prevent these situations as well as others.

    As a point of reference, I once discharged such a shock into my TV stand frame (metal) that the stereo receiver (sitting on glass that rests on the metal but cables run through metal parts) rebooted. Static is a BAD thing for electronics, it's only a matter of time before the phone has had enough shocks run through it and some part that's weakened gives up the ghost.

    We used to have to wear static discharge straps when I was fixing radios, once the integrated circuit stuff came into use... And the soldering iron was earthed too...

    You zapped a reset pin. You will kill the CPU.
