    My phone keeps turning off randomly, and I have to do a battery pull to turn it back on. Is this a common bug? Or what do you think is causing it?

    Can you give more details on the frequency? is it everyday, every hour, once a week, once every two weeks? I've had my phone do that, but its usually when I am trying to use gps, the phone just freezes and reboots.

    If it is frequent, I suggest you do a factory reset.

    Are you using SetCPU by any chance? It's the only thing that's ever caused me a random shutdown.

    Ya I am beiliving the problem to be SetCPU I have shut off the profiles and will report back the findings. So far the problem seems to be gone.

    Although wierd part is that it worked with setCPU for a few days before this problem happened.

    PS thanks guys

    Yup it appeared to be setCPU, I tried changing some some setting but its very buggy. So until the next update I am leaving it off.

    Thread moved out of the generic Vibrant area to the Vibrant Support and Troubleshooting forum area. ;)

    Did you by chance have SetCPU set to a minimum clock speed of 100MHz? The stock minimum is 200MHz...it's pretty well established at this point that anything below 200 could cause freezes and lags.
