    Because it stands for Red Eye of Death!

    I had the Hero for a month and end of the first week I was on a business trip and I power cycled the phone and when it came up it said no service and multiple power cycles later the cell service would not connect and I would get tons of force close errors for the background processes.
    I happened to be near a best buy so i stopped in and looked up a hard reset. After hard reset it was fine. Over the following 3 weeks I got maybe 1 spontaneous reset a week, which was troubling but I attributed it to the system restarting to clear out memory to update apps or something, although there obviously should be a dialog to inform you of that.. Other than that the Hero performed excellent.

    For the last 4 days on the droid it has performed well but i get about 2 spontaneous resets a day and this morning i got an email from someone who I emailed last night where the email they receieved from me was full of about 2 pages of alpha characters that didnt make sense. I clicked reply and flipped out the keyboard and as it went to landscape the screen blanked and rebooted then the eye came up and never went away. Several battery pulls and 15-30 mins of staring at the eye I felt like I was back on my POS Touch Pro and I wanted to throw the effer out the window. 200 apps on my Ipod Touch 2g used extensively by my 3 & 5 yr old and I and never a freeze, reboot or hard reset. WTF

    It reminds me the Eye from Lord of the Rings... but like a high-tech version of it which deeply gazes into your soul. Kinda creepy.

    Return it. They'll give you a new one.

    The red eye reminds me of an updated Hal 9000.

    I agree--return the phone and they should replace it. If it's causing that much of a problem already, get a replacement.
