Wedge a piece of paper under the battery to force it up onto the contacts more securely

It could well be, but lets try the simple things first and take it from there.

I get this once in awhile as well and it has always been a bad app that I installed. Google Chrome does it to my phone and Touch pal keyboard will do it once in awhile. Does this happen when you using an app or when the phone is in sleep mode ?

do you have an external sd card?
try taking it out and see if it still reboots.

also, do you move apps from the default location into internal/external sd card? I've seen people who do this get this problem in the past. I never move apps. I just let them install to wherever the are intended to go and leave them there.
