Re: Random Shutdowns
YES! And I can tell you more about this known issue to Samsung, that they can't seem to fix.

It happens when you charge your phone to 100%, or keep it charged up too much. Apparently the charging mechanism on the battery is faulty in some way in that it over-charges the battery. Don't plug it in so often. Yes, that is contrary to the advice on improving longevity of Lithium ion batteries, BUT that's the ONLY solution.
I was very sad to see this SAME problem existed when I upgraded to an Infuse.
I had them replace my old Captivate when it had this problem, and they sent me a clear refurb that had defect on the camera lens. I didn't bother with it again, but ..
So -- no more charging so much.
