Default Problem with my Elf: Freezing, restarting...

Hi there,

at first: sorry for my bad english.

If've some problems with my HTC touch (Elf).

At first the problem:

-> It freeze in different programs, for e.g. on today screen, at new sms incoming, in a phone call, entering pin, and so on.
-> It freeze for 10-20 seconds, then it shut down OR it restarts
-> If it restarts, it freeze sometimes at "Smart mobility" or restarts new
-> If it shutdown, it can't start up for a while (30s - 1 min)
-> ^^ Press soft reset button a couple of times (3...4...5... times) helps
-> Remove and insert akku helps, too
-> The "Smart Mobility" Screen became sometimes a red background and a yellow font
-> Sometimes after the "Smart Mobility"-Screen comes a white screen.

What I've tested to solve the problem:

-> Hard reset
-> Update Radio Rom
-> Update ISPL/SPL
-> Try different Roms ("all" available)
-> Try the "pure" (original HTc9 rom without any installations

Now, some informations about my Elf:

-> Radio Rom 03.12.90 (ASerg_ELF_RADIO_ROM_03.12.90.rar)
-> IPL: 1.11.0002
-> SPL: 1.11.0000
-> Unlocked this IPL/SPL (to install new roms)
-> WM6 .11.407.1G_4.1.13.44_02.94.90 (RUU_Elf_HTC_GER_1.11.407.1G_4.1.13.44_02.94.90_GR EEN_Ship.exe)

So one. Is there anybody, who has an idea?

I have the same exact problem! Sorry for my bad english to!
Let's see if we can understand something about this problem..
I notice the problem is worst when it is hot (the weather, not the phone) and with high humidity, for example when I have the phone in the pocket of the pants.
I have the red start mobility screen to but I didn't find any info about it in internet, what does it mean?

I think this is a hardware problem, don't you?
I think I'll send it to assistance when I'll come back from holidays

Maybe something with battery? Some non-HTC phones had problems like freezing etc. caused by too low voltage on battery

That was that, what I'm thinking about at first. I've think when the problem does starts, and I think it starts, when I was an half an hour in a cold store with my Elf. The akku discharge very fast at the moment. I'll try a new akku.

I have exactly the same problem on my Elf. Restarting at least 5 times a day. It generally blocks after i receive a phone call.
:( I have changed 3 Roms so far but still no solution

same here... few weeks a go... random power offs.

few notes:
the phone cannot be turned on again only if the battery is remove for 2-3 secs and put back again

the phone clock freezes in this case. and i should set it again.

anyone having this problem?
i guess it a hardware issue

Yes the same here, my clock also freeze. I have to remove the battery but not all the time, sometimes it just need a soft reset.
Did someome already try to change the battery?
Nobody noticed that the problem is worst in the hottest part of the day and it gets better in the evening when it's colder?
Anyway, I have this problem since a couple of months and it's getting worst.
