    Have you tried to update your phone recently? A new update came out just the other day. What apps do you have installed? If your not too attached to your settings and stock your sbf file and start over does it still happen? I am too also new to Android and smart phones but have come along pretty quick with the help of guides and reading on forums. When you say offline do you mean the phone is just off? So either it is a update you need to do or you need to check over the apps you have installed. One of them is most likely causing it to reboot.

    Actually, an 'auto restart' could be quite useful, IF it was controlled and scheduled, in order to keep the phone functioning at max capacity and clear the memory. Is there an app that can do this in a scheduled manner, or does an app exist like "Slide to Shutdown (winmo)" that will restart an Android device in stead of just turning it off? Thanks! :)

    Yes there is a app for that. Can't remember what ones there are, and I'm too lazy to search google :p I'm sure someone will comment soon enough on what ones there are to choose from ;)

    Thanks, I hope so! :) I Googled and it only seemed to populate more questions like mine and how to remotely shut down your Android phone if stolen :(

    Power Off is an uato-restart app in the Market - root users only.

    Everytime when I wanna update my phone, it says I got the latest one already. I got apps like BatteryTime Lite, AndExplorer, Ringdroid & some games. Do u know what apps will cause it to reboot? What I meant offline is it reboot & ask for pin(common thing when u turn on the phone) but sometimes it just reboot & never ask for pin.

    None of these apps rooted it. If you know nothing about it it means it is not rooted.

    By the way...what's the meaning of rooted anyway?? Sorry guys...I'm still new here.

    It means getting administrative rights to the system files so you can delete them and add new ones.

    So, what would u recommend me to do? Any good suggestion? Would it be better if I update to 2.2 firmware? How can it be done?

    1. There is no 2.2 ROM for the Milestone.
    2. What do you want to do? Do you want to reboot your phone or do something else?

    Like I said previous apply the stock sbf on it then you can test and see if it still reboots. If I stops rebooting then you know it was a app and you can slowly add each app testing each one for a day to see when the phone starts rebooting. You will lose all your settings but then again it shouldn't reboot anymore with just the stock sbf.

    I wanna do something else. What do u think about TelusMilestone idea? Or do u have a better one? Pls teach me...step by step if possible because I'm not too good at it. Thanks.

    TelusMilestone's idea is the only one I'd suggest.

    I have the same trouble. I don't really do apps, so there are none to speak of on my phone, it's been doing it since I bought it. It is fully upgraded as far as I know and it seems to auto-restart when I am trying to text than at any other time. But on occasion it will do it when just sitting idle. It seems to take almost a min or two to fully reboot.

    I have done several factory restores and no change, I reported it when it was under warranty and they did nothing. It is really getting annoying as I also use the phone to run my business and when it shuts off in the middle of a call it costs me money.

    I have the motorola milestone.It's a POS.
