Unhappy Random Reboots

Does anyone else suffer from random reboots with there device? it does it twice a day or more for me???

Is there anything i can do to stop this issue from happening again?

I've had it once or twice. Presumably a rogue app or a bug in the system.

I haven't suffered from a random reboot at all since having the phone on the second day of availability in the UK.

Then again, I haven't rooted mine, unlike others...

Not a single crash or random reboot so far. I rebooted last Friday after charging my battery and it's been running since without problems. My best guess is that culprit is one of your applications that you've installed, especially any application that tries to do something with Android and the device itself.

I had these reboots on a G2X and it drove me bonkers so I am always worried about phones doing it and I watch uptime like a hawk. Nexus has been rock solid since I turned it on the first time. No reboots. Sometimes it's apps and sometimes your use case just exposes a bug in the OS. Try doing a wipe and installing a few apps at a time so you can figure out what's causing it n

This is just speculation, but I remembered seeing a thread somewhere in another form, in which a user with another device with the same random reboot problem was advised to check his sim card. A bad sim card may "vanish" for a while, causing the device to reboot. Again, just speculation, or if you wish, a hypothesis you can check.

I have something similar, the first time was when I was charging my phone, I woke up in the morning and I found my phone off and hot as hell. Battery pull and everything went perfect. then it happened to me 5 times, the phone freezes and turns itself off, then I have to do a battery pull! the last time was today I was listening to some music, then the music went weird, then the phone froze and turned itself off.
I called Three for a new phone as I have it for under 14days
