Constant rebooting. Why?
Played with the phone at home last night. No problems. Mostly using WIFI connection only. Today on the drive to work the phone rebooted several times. Was not using the phone at all !! At work today it has rebooted at least 5 times, once while I was using YouTube widget.
Thoughts??? Anyone else having this issue??

Now that there are more DI users out there, I thought I would revive this thread...
I received my phone 4 days ago and haven't really installed a ton of programs (4-5 max). All of them are official apps from the Market (like Google Sky, NY Times, etc). My phone rebooted on day 2 when the battery was almost caput. It also rebooted on day 3 while it was in my pocket and I was playing golf.
The first time I saw it reboot in front of me (I wasn't using any programs, phone was just sitting on the table). The second time I realized it reboot because of the reset "up time"
Anyone else having this issue? I don't care too much as long as it doesn't happen while I am trying to use my phone, but annoying nonetheless.

I have had my INC since release day and it has never re-booted on its own. I have downloaded and played with a lot of apps but currently have about 20 non-native actually being used. I never had a random re-boot on my Storm 1 in the year plus I owned it. While the possibility of a "bad batch" of phones is certainly viable I can't help but think that these re-boots are either 3rd party app or user error related.-----------------------------------------------

I am on my second Inc due to the random rebooting. I am waiting on my third from best buy but no inventory. If the random rebooting happens on my third I will keep returning the Inc until it doesnt happen anymore. I love this phone it has and does everything I want and need. This is the only problem, I can live with it for now.

I've had mine since 4/30. It had no issues for the first 2 weeks. Then it started rebooting randomly, most often when I would be using the stock browser. Half the time it rebooted itself, it would hang and I would have to pull the battery out to shut it off, then start it back up. It was getting annoying and more frequent, and it all came to a head last friday. It rebooted, and once it was back up, it had deleted all of my settings. Luckily it hadn't yet deleted any of my apps or files. So I quickly backed everything up, and performed a hard reset. Then it started rebooting itself about every 2 mins, whether or not I was actually using it. This time it was freezing each time it was rebooting. After a couple of hours of this nonsense, I was able to keep it up long enough to perform another hard reset. It didn't help at all. So now the phone is unusable. I had to borrow a friend's old BB Curve to tide me over until I get a replacement, which I don't even know when I'm going to get. I'm very disappointed that it's having such an issue. It's an awesome phone otherwise, and I'm looking forward to getting that replacement quickly. =(~ Maja

Mine did a random reboot once when I first got the phone. Never did it again either. Maybe it is some sort of automatic thing when it's turned on and activated?!The Storm has cleared to an Incredible day! I ate an IceCream Sandwhich. Still needed JellyBeans. ;-)NEXUS!!!!!!
