    So, I'm new to Android and this whole WORLD of things lol. How often do yall restart/reboot the phone?

    Kind of on-topic, but has anyone had any issues turning the phone right back on after turning it off? I've had this happen twice, where the phone wouldn't do anything, power button useless. This is after the phone shuts down and I try to turn it back on. I have to pull the battery to get the power to turn on.

    I turn it off at night to charge. I assume this counts.

    No issues with it turning back on.

    See, I would turn it off, but I want to receive an emergency call if it happens overnight. Plus, I use it as my main alarm clock.

    I wonder if I should take it in for the issues turning it back on though, because I have the tinny/static earpiece issue too. Hmm..

    Mine is a toy...so I don't have that issue.

    I cansay the one call I made on it was amazingly clear (comparing to 8330 and treo pro on Sprint).

    I have no set schedule, but I've done it about once per day so far. I have also had the phone have problems turning back on, but for me I just needed to wait 10-15 seconds before trying to restart, I just assumed the phone is so packed, it needed more time to breathe.

    The first time that happened, I ended up plugging the charger in (battery was mostly charged) then it turned back on. Not sure if that had the same effect as a battery pull, or just that enough time passed for the phone to be ready to turn back on. If it was the charger that did the trick, that would probably be quicker for you than a battery pull I imagine.

    I'll try the waiting thing, maybe waiting longer than I have in the past. I never felt the need to reboot the iPhone when I had it, mostly due to no multitasking (lol), but I feel I need to with this phone. You know?, just to get a fresh start, kind of like a computer. :)

    Didn't know if that was a normal ritual to all the Android regulars out there.

    My uptime is over 115 hours :) I haven't rebooted since I bought the phone and haven't needed to. I'm going to see how long I can go!!!

    I have had ZERO issues with my phone with it's operation, call quality, etc. ZERO. I'm MORE than happy.

    I plan to reboot mine once a week because it is a PC basically.

    You must hold that power button down continuously for a good five seconds before the phone will power up after a shutdown.

    The only time I reboot my phone is if I install a new program or after an update has been installed. Its just a good idea to do that after a new installation otherwise I have not needed to re boot at all.

    I turn off my phone every night to charge it while I'm sleeping. I did reboot today though and I had the same thing happen to me, I pressed the power button to turn it back on and nothing. You have to wait a few minutes and then it will work.

    I'm at around 125 hours without a reboot. And I only rebooted after receiving the update. That's about 123 hours longer than I ever went with my old Touch Diamond Windows Mobile phone.

    I have been rebooting quite a bit, not because of issues with the phone, but because of various tweaks I am trying, as well as rooting with toast, etc.

    I think I have perfected the amount of startup items you can safely remove without any adverse affects to the device, and thus battery life has dramatically improved, not that I had an issue with it before, but i'm quite confident I can go days without a charge. :)

    I've only restarted when I changed something that needed a reboot.
