    just got off the phone with a senior tech support at Verizon regarding my phone rebooting randomly. He told me that they are aware of this to be happening in certain area and they should have an update to resolve this.

    this is a replacement phone cause my first phone did this, and so I called again cause of this problem but this time they instructed me to wait it out until the fix which should be within a week (as he says).....

    I don't know if many are having this problem....but I just wanted to let those that are having this problem to wait it out and see.....

    I haven't been able to put my screen protector on cause I didn't know if I had to replace the phone or not.....so being extra careful LOL

    Two defective phones??? Were they like this right out the box? Any apps like Advanced Task Killer running?

    About once a day my inc random reboots. I have atk but i don't have it auto killing task, I only use it when i have to. I don't think that has anything to do with it but I'm waiting for a fix...

    no task killer....and you could say right out of the box. It doesn't happen too frequently, but it does happen I think at least couple times a day (most of the time, it reboots while in the pocket so I don't know it happens). But I now know when it happened....when I unlock the phone and slide to a different screen and one of the widget has to reload, it has rebooted. does this make sense? When you reboot or something, you will notice when going to another screen any widgets you have will reload and you can see that happening.

    So anyway....all we can do is to wait it out I guess.....

    My phone just rebooted twice in the last hour!! Sitting right on the desk. Never happened before. Both times were after phone calls. Don't know if that is by cooincidence or not. Can't really miss the reboot - phone makes sound, vibrates, and then you see the rebooting images by HTC and Verizon. Hope this become a commonplace problem.
