The purpose of this survey is to try to determine the number of people that are having this issue with their Bionic. Only four options:


Yes - STD battery
Yes - Extended Battery
No
I don't know what BSOD is??

Please only unrooted handsets as rooting may wel add a complication that is unforeseen.

Thanks,

RMD

Yes, actually happened for the first time to me today. Using the standard battery. I actually use 2 different standard batteries because I have the extra battery and charger.
Just noticed you said not to include rooters...oops

I've had it happen twice while using the standard battery, but haven't seen it again since the first weekend of its release. (Of course now that I've said that, I'm sure I'll see it within a few hours.)

Just happened a little while ago with the extended battery. Actually I didn't have issues with the phone until I got the extended battery. Thought it was that but the data here suggests otherwise and likely just coincidental.

My first Bionic on 9/8 had about 4 BSOD and several random reboots over a 3 day period. Verizon gave me a new one on Monday, 9/12 and I had only one BSOD after 2-3 days and nothing since then. I have used the extended battery since day one. I hope I see no more. There is a good thread on the Moto Support Forum regarding this.

Only once with the extended battery but i was messing with installs and uninstalls at the time i think i was more the cause than the battery i have had the battery for almost nine days and had not had it happen before.

I actually had two phone that froze, but I can only vote once on this poll. FYI, BSOD is misleading. Both my phones did not die with a black screen. They froze when I was doing something on it. I would imagine freezing with an active screen is more common than freezing with an inactive one. Anyways, this is great info. Was beginning to think I got really unlucky with my two phones, but it looks like these issues I am having are not uncommon.
