    Anyone experiencing the phone turning off when they close the keyboard? I can repro consistantly, and its happened to me 5+ times in the last two days?

    Think I got a lemon?

    Playing around with it more, it definitely seems to be a hardware issue. I will try and get it replaced tomorrow.

    cheers,

    This is a complete guess, but the Palm Pre had an issue with some batteries that had too much "wiggle room", and the same thing was happening. When you closed the keyboard, the battery would lose contact long enough to reset the phone. I never had the issue, but many did. I'd still go ahead and return it, obviously.

    My phone doesn't shut off when I close the keyboard but I do notice that when on the home screen, it automatically rotates to portrait mode even though I am still holding it horizontally.
