Notsure HELP: Motorola Triumph randomly restarts!

My Motorola Triumph keeps randomly rebooting and the battery goes from 90% to 7% suddenly sometimes. I had the phone for a week so far and the frequence of restarts is increasing. I don't have any task killer app.

Is it some software that I am using or it's a hardware issue? Do you think I should have the phone replaced by Virgin Mobile?

It is possible that there is a problem with the sdcard.

Recommend yiu backup what you can if there is something yiu wish to keep.

Power down the phone. Make sure the sdcard is firmly seated in the socket.

Boot the phone back up. Now using the phone's menu, format the sdcard.

See if that helps.

A factory reset wouldn't hurt. But id only do that after formatting the sdcard.

I followed your advice and formatted the SD card. Let's see where that leads

Did this work? I am having the same problem (when I 'power off' my Triumph, it immediately restarts).

Also another thing is if you are overclocking then you are overclocking to high... If not back up all your apps with titanium backup do a factory reset and restore your apps and see if that helps.

Go to settings, wireless&networks, wifi settings. Click the four square button on bottom left of phone. Pick advanced, wifi sleep policy, select never and hit cancel to exit. Thats it. Worked for me. No more restarts

if that worked for you thats crazy lol, that just sets the wifi to never turn itself off



also be careful with that, if you were to accidentally leave wifi turned on and charge your phone overnight your could have an overheat issue

also that'll possibly drain your battery

Which rom are you on? It sounds like VM is trying to push an OTA but your missing something. Although this doesn't really make sense because I've never heard of anything being pushed to this phone, not even a prl update.

Default Same thing

Heppened with my first Triumph. It happened with such regularity that I had to have Virgin send me a replacement. The replacement does the same thing but not as often. Annoying but still useable.

I have this happen every once in a while (it was much more frequent on my old samsung intercept). I get the distinct impression it gets upset and throws a tantrum when it can't get a good signal (which is a problem inside the building where I work - I've never had the restart problem anywhere else).

Before you reflash your ROM, make sure you wipe your dalvik cache in CWM, after wiping data and cache. Even with a "new" replacement from VM, that does not mean you are the first user of the internal hardware.
