    I was wondering if the droid 2 had random rebooting issues.

    I haven't had any. I reboot it myself once or twice a day due to the reception problem.

    Rebooting issues are problems caused by junk apps that people install and for some reason keep around. Neither the X, Incredible, or 2 will just reboot randomly, there will always be a reason.

    Actually alot of the incredibles when they first came out would randomly reboot if you got in a low service area so that has nothing to do with an app.

    My phone hasn't had a issue at all, with either restarts or reception issues. The only issue I had was one battery pull due to installing crap apps, or crapps...lol

    Haven't had any reboots or hangs on the Incredible in the 3 days I've had it with about 7 App installs.

    exact same for me, one random reboot, (as I put it in the car dock and plugged it in) on day one but since then NADA

    and I remember my droid 1 rebooting every time I closed the keyboard (until I swapped it out under warranty)

    I had random reboots on my first Inc. I had no third party apps installed. My replacement INC had no random reboots.

    My first DX I didn't have long enough to tell. My replacement DX in the 29 days I had it has had 1 random reboot.

    So, I dunno wtf is going on with these phones...

    I have a 5 week old Droid 2 (R2D2 edition) and yesterday it turned itself off and would not respond to button presses to turn it back on for about 30 minutes. After that there were about 4-5 reboots in a row, then everything was fine. A little over a day later, a.k.a. right freaking now, it crashed and rebooted itself while I was in the text message app and it's in a cycle of constant reboots (it's on #8 now). The only marketplace apps I've installed are Facebook, Accuweather, and Bump, and there were no troubles with them for three weeks.

    I have had the same problem with my phone as well (10 days old) and while the reboots only take around a minute to complete, it is certainly very annoying. I decided to install a logging utility called CatLog in hopes of catching some details about what is causing the crash. My phone just rebooted and I was able to capture some of the logging which I have attached to this posting. Here are the lines that are probably the root cause of the reboot though:

    03-15 13:05:54.420 W/Cursor (18149): at dalvik.system.NativeStart.main(Native Method)

    I encourage others to do the same, maybe we can catch the eyes of Verizon/Motorola to resolve this problem. I hope this helps somebody down the road!
