Default [Q] Random Reboots

I've looked everywhere and have yet to find a fix to resolve the Atrix 4G random reboot issue (phone reboots multiple times a day). Has anyone been able to resolve this issue? ... love the phone, but this is driving me crazy!

Thanks to all.

DONATE TO ME
If you're rooted, then you have full access to all system logs. I think looking at those is your only chance of figuring out why this is happening.
(Now please don't say "derp, how do I look at logs". Use forum search and google instead.)

Thanks for the advice, but this reboot issue is a widespread problem (as you can see with a quick google).

I had hoped that someone in this forum might know of the problem and how to resolve.

I should also mention that this appears to be a radio firmware bug; the reboot problem doesn't happen in airplane mode, but does occur if wi-fi, data and airplane mode are all turned off.

Hum. Maybe a radio change can help?
I recall having reboots, but they were very sporadical, like one a week or less.

Default Additional troubleshooting information

Some additional information:
- the frequency of reboots is very dependent on my location; in some locations reboots occur multiple times/day, other locations no reboot problem which leads me to think that this is a radio firmware problem which is triggered by protocol between phone and towers
- this appears to be a widespread problem (simply search "Atrix random reboot poll" in the XDA forums)
- I've attempted all the recommended "fixes" (factory reset, new SIM card) with no success
Any assistance would be much appreciated! Thank you.

Again, did you flashed a different radio? Files are all over xda, but i'm not sure if you can flash them with a locked bootloader

I do not have an unlocked bootloader; yes, there are many radio files out there, but those that have tried this haven't documented any success. I was hoping for some specific guidance vs. trying all permutations of radio file until I find something that works.
