Yea I've had mine reboot a dozen times today, no idea what the hell is actually triggering it though, I can't believe that it is just totally random and it's obviously attributed to the newest radio firmware... I'm debating on calling Verizon and *****ing up a storm, but honestly 1) I don't think there's anything they can do about it 2) if there was they wouldn't know how to do it and 3) they probably don't care.
I think this **** is getting out of control through, half available storage space and **** poor updates, not to mention the **** ton of bloatware and the fact that if you do ANYTHING about it the phone loses it's warranty, it's my damn phone, if your hardware sucks why is it my fault when I'm changing the software? Computer companies don't tell you if you install linux you void your warranty, why should a phone company?

I'm rebooting constantly (stock, only app is Angry Birds) and haven't had uptime over 20 minutes since the update while unplugged. Odd thing is if I plug the phone it it doesn't reboot that I've seen, only when unplugged.
Definitely call Verizon and complain, that way they can track the issues and know it's a real problem that is impacting more than one or two people. When I called today they said they hadn't received any calls of random reboots being caused by the OTA so the more people calling in the better.
mannw1977 - Make sure to let us know if the factory reset fixes the issue for you. I don't want to bother if it isn't going to resolve the problem.

My phone was rebooting every 2-3 min for a couple of days. I tryed pulling the battery, factory reset with the memory card out to see if there was something on my memory card causing it and still nothing. After a week on the phone with tech support and this being a certified phone cause my 1st thunderbolt had no network connection I convienced them to send me a brand new one. They told me they cant do it but if you complain enough they will do it. But now I'm nervous that even with a brand new one that will be here Tues. I'll still have the same issue. I love my phone but its starting to get old...

Yes you will lose all your apps. But payed ones are still linked to your google account. Also your can use the app "my backup" to save your apps+ data associated with them (so your don't lose your levels on angry birds)
Once you reset simply re download my backup and choose the restore option.
