    I just upgraded from my original Moto Droid to the Droid 2 (happy day right?). After getting multiple faulty original Droids, Verizon upgraded me to a "certified like new phone". I proceeded with set up and added my Gmail account and re-downloaded all the apps from my marketplace that were on the original Droid. At this point my phone began to reboot every 20 min. with no warning. I did a hard reset on the phone and still the problem persists. I'm really not sure if this would have anything to do with the issue, but I am using the same battery and SD card that were in the original Droid.

    I really don't know what to do and would love any suggestions from anybody here on AC

    Maybe try formatting the SD card.

    The Droid Series are notorious for this problem. This is why I traded my Droid X in for a Samsung Galaxy S Fascinate because the Droid X had self-rebooting problems during its 30 day period.

    Thanks for the tip, gave it a shot. The problem is still persisting, I have noticed the amount of reboots is worse when the phone is in my pocket. I am wondering if this might be an overheating safety measure? Dunno, thanks for the tip again fang.

    I wish I could get off of this phone Verizon won't let me get any different model without using an upgrade, and I am still hopeful for the bionic.

    the best way i have found to prevent random reboots is to put a custom ROM on the device. Specifically the gingerbread leak.

    so cory it sounds like you are thinking this is a software issue? i'll try putting the gingerbread leak on the new phone I get from vzw. I had just figured the ota version was so close, I didn't bother to look into rooting it. thanks for the suggestion!

    I do think it is a software issues, because when i think of Motorola, all that comes to mind is above par hardware with below par software.

    I had a similar problem with my Droid 2 (stock, 2.2) and I found that the issues were significantly reduced when I went through and removed all the apps I didn't use/didn't need.

    Let me know what you end up doing,
    my phone is doing the same thing. I actually came on to the forums to post the same problem because it's been happening all day. I'm just nervous to do the gingerbread thing, I've never tried to install anything on my phone other than the usual market stuff.

    newb nerves i guess

    well everyone, I got the phone switched out again through Verizon warranty claims center (on phone #9) the rebooting has stopped! I didn't do anything at all, running stock software and errythang! Just logged in with my gmail account and re-downloaded all the apps I have always had on all my phones...and it works! I might still end up doing that gingerbread update, we'll see though.
