    Default Did your S3 reboot yesterday?

    Last night, mine and my wife's Verizon S3 rebooted on its own. I looked through all the settings to see if the firmware or baseband or anything changed and couldn't find anything new. Anyone else experience this?

    Mine did. It was odd because it was right after I rebooted it. Happened about 10:30 pm

    Wow that is odd. I'm hopeful that positive things are coming our way.

    I received a notice that one of the phone system files stopped working, I did a reboot and then after it came back up, the phone rebooted again, about 11:20 pm pst.

    hmm, maybe Verizon is forcing an update on the Sim or network info?

    Yes....did it get hot before hand? Mine restarted after deleting GO Sms. Froze for a second then rebooted.

    It was a very unusual restart: it didn't play the usual audio tones that get played during shutdown or boot; it didn't take as long as a normal restart.

    Mine was a silent restart as well. Reminded me of my HTC Thunderbolt when it would reboot several times a day without warning. That was after a software update as well.

    I know this is the Verizon thread but do all of you have Verizon or live in the US? I did not, to my knowledge, get a restart. Nothing seems different about the phone either.

    Did the reboot reset the up-time on the phones?
    Mine reads 132 hours, so I'm assuming it didn't re-boot.

    This happened to me also. Same reboot style also but it was around 11 on the 6th I believe. I was excited b/c I thought I had a software update but didn't notice anything different. I only noticed b/c I was work and saw my screen flash b/c I have my phone sitting a couple feet in front of me when I'm in my office. No word on what it was?

    That you know of! Remember... It was a silent reboot. No noise and no vibrations.

    Yes, mine has been rebooting a couple of times a day for about 3 weeks. It never resets the "uptime" timer. I think it's time for a factory reset. It just did another reboot about 15 minutes ago. There's supposedly an update coming on the 22nd, so I'm holding out until then to do the factory reset.

    For as much as I'd like to see an update.. I wouldn't expect Verizon to follow through on that.
    At least not until they announce it the day it's released.

    Add me to the list of random reboots. It did it twice on Friday when I was trying to use Google Maps. I don't know if that's related or simply coincidence since other times the phone has done it seemingly randomly.
    You know, I've never met anyone like you before. Usually when I meet someone new I feel awkward and shy. But with you it's different.

    One of the salesmen at the counter at a local Best Buy Samsung display said they'll have the image on the day of release and he could upload it to the phone if I wanted. ymmv of course. I do wonder why I haven't seen anything announcing it from Verizon tho.

    I advise all of you not to update on the 22nd. The international version is totally screwed (battery drain, sluggish) by the update and after the last Verizon update I will not upgrade immediately.
