[Q] Another rebooting EVO...but different
Alright guys, I'm not exactly new here, I've been a member for awhile, but I had an iPhone 3g S for awhile and had no need of any help. I have since switched to Sprint and decides I was getting the HTC EVO 4G...go figure, I buy it no more then a ask before it takes a price cut of $50. Oh well, no big deal. Moving on to my problem, I've had it for about and overall, the phone is decent. Much like you guys, I want my phones to keep up with me and although it tries hard, it just can't. Recently I've been having two problems. The first one, a random reboot, which seems to be caused by heat/charging/overuse issues. This, I have found, is a very common issue with the EVOs and regardless of the inconvenience, its not serious, yet.
My second, albeit more troublesome, problem, is the rebooting loop, again seems to be a very common issue with the EVOs. Mine, however, seems to not fit the description. From what I've been reading, the reboots are typically on the original models, where mine is over a year newer. Another difference, my phone loads everything up, completes a sync, then reboot again. The only time it gets stuck in a reboot loop is when the phone, whether by itself or by my own doing, reboot AND has an SD card in there. I can remove the SD cars during the loop and everything works perfectly fine...except it takes me about 3 minutes to remove my SD card since I have an Otter box defender case on it.
My EVO is NOT rooted, has all current updates installed, has the OEM SD card...OEM everything actually, and all apps are installed on the phone now. When it first started happening, it was shortly after I downloaded an app update from the store for an app that was on my phone. I figured the download must have corrupted a file, the phone failed to load it, then reboots. I would uninstall the apps I thought to be the culprits, reinstated the SD card, everything worked, until a few minutes ago, when it reboot looped on me again and I realized I no longer have apps on my SD card...what do I do? Phone works perfectly fine without the SD card installed, but I like being able to take pictures and saving them. I don't even have the option to save them locally, which is bull.
Just a quick reminder, I have searched the forums, I've also searched al of Google with no revolting loops similar to my SD card issue appearing. I have a lot of pictures on my SD card currently and have another one to try, but I'm not sure how long I'd have to wait before the boot looping happens again. Any insight would be greatly appreciated and if I happened to have missed the post where there was already a fix for this, I'm sorry.
P.S. I'm sorry for any grammar or spelling mistakes, the autocorrect on Android isn't near as Goo as iOS. I love Android, but if I have to get a new phone, I'm going back to the iPhone.
