    Default Random Reboots

    Since activating my phone yesterday morning my phone has rebooted no less then 4 times while sitting on the table and one during a phone call. Anyone else having this issue?

    Mine has done this twice today >.< I wasn't using it at the time and I probably never would have known if it weren't for the annoying "Droid" noise when it reboots....

    So far, no random reboots since activating Friday night.

    I uninstalled ADW Launcher and uninstalled a battery life widget (this widget seemed to be draining my battery as well) and I'll report back on my findings

    I see you found this other thread on that very subject: Disable "Droid" sound during bootup.

    24 hours and still no reboot...looks like I had a bum device the first go around.

    it's been over 48 hours for me....I'm thinking it was "SetCPU" for root that was making mine reboot, because ever since I deleted that it has been smooth sailing....

    hello, noobie here! i'm having the same auto reboot --

    hi, brina042, what is the adw launcher? and on another message you said something about the SETCPU...what is that

    ADW Launcher is a "skin" of sorts that makes the phone more customizable as far as looks go. I downloaded it from the market. SETCPU is an application that can be used on rooted phones to speed up or slow down the phones processor. I was using it to slow it down in order to get more battery life out of my phone. What apps have you downloaded to the phone?

    thanks, brina042 ... just a couple - watchdog lite, and a game for my son, paper toss. since i do not have a rooted phone, the SETCPU does not apply....

    by the way, regarding auto reboot:

    i had mine hard reset, restarted with my set up, and 17 hours later, no reboot yet....it might needed that hard reset.

    It's been about 4 days since a random reboot for me and most of the time a reset is all it takes

    I would never have believed it but driving home tonight I look over and my Pro is re-booting for no apparent reason at all. Wasn't being used at all......this is very weird. I don't use SetCPU or ADW Launcher so I have no idea what caused it. I did root my phone a few days ago so I could remove the obnoxious 'droooooid' voice when the phone boots up. Anyone else having random re-boots???

    Mine has rebooted twice since the 19th of November. Not sure what caused it but overall seems quite stable. Are these auto-reboots or something wrong with the device?

    My conclusion is that there must be a conflict with some of the apps, being this is a new Android device. Regardless, after removing a few unnecessary apps, I have yet to encounter a random reboot. Which app, you ask??? I am not sure. :o

    FYI...as of my previous post, I haven't had any more random reboots.

    Mine is working great. Just installed extended battery too.
