Hey zombie, welcome to Android Central. My girlfriend had that problem, and we loaded up a custom rom and it has not happened since...Honestly i wouldnt go with an aria, IMHO its not one of HTC's better products....if you can wait a little bit the next galaxy S phone coming with the super amoled plus screen is coming out , if you would wait i would wait for that,,,if not you can get the captivate , throw a custom operating system on it and you will be very happy

Come on man, of course , this is Android Central ;) look at my signature below, there is links to a bunch of videos made by a friend of mine for the captivate, from fixes to the shut down problem if you decide to stay to, and videos on how to mod and customize it

I, personally, would just wait and grab either the INspire or the Attrix when it comes out. If you would rather have one of the Galaxy phones, then wait until the Infuse comes out. Still no time frame on that one, but it should be by Spring time in my guess.

A key consideration for your choice might be whether you plan to root the phone and run custom ROMs. I chose the Moto Bravo for my first smart phone, and while I like it a lot, rooting it is about all I'm ever likely to be able to do with it. If I had it to do over again, I'd probably get a phone that I knew I could truly customize. The Captivate is just such a phone.
