D2G keeps rebooting
My D2G has been rebooting itself frequently (multiple times a day) for some time now. I cannot pinpoint what is causing it... it seems to happen while performing different activity each time. I don't see a pattern at all. How can I verify what is causing these crashes/reboots? Are there any logs anywhere that one can take a look at to see what's happening?
This is on stock verizon ROM.

Got a replacement phone. This one randomly reboots as well. I think it happens when it loses signal. I was at a friends house yesterday where there is poor Verizon coverage... barely any signal... the phone kept rebooting itself several times in a row... looked like it was unable to obtain signal.
I've seen other D2 users suffering from similar issue. I just haven't seen any solutions posted. Frustrating, ugh...

Man I went through 4 of the D2G's same thing on all of them...also horrible battery life...Sold the last one and bought a DROID X and not one problem from this phone for the month or so that I've had it....Not saying get rid of the D2G .....but from my experience with the device...I'd look into another ANDROID device....Just MY opinion.
And so I'm on D2G number 3 now. Verizon refuses to accept the fact that it's something inherently wrong with D2G that causes these reboots when it loses signal, so they keep sending me replacement D2Gs, thinking it's the particular device that's faulty. Sigh...
I think in my case it would help if I had one of their network extenders in the house which would ensure I have plenty of signal, so the signal loss would not occcur, and thus the reboots would not occur. Alas, it costs $250 and they don't want to give it away for free. But this is getting ridiculous... why am I paying hundreds of dollars in wireless bills every month if I get such crappy coverage and constant reboots. Really not happy with Verizon (and Motorola) right now...
