    My alarm didn't go off today, an interesting lockup situation.

    Methinks it is my fault for not rebooting my phone recently; I think I will start a 2* a week reboot schedule.

    Was the phone locked up on you?

    I don't often reboot mine and only when I change something to the OS or do something that requires me to reboot (limiting permissions on an app etc)

    What sort of phone needs restarting twice a week just to get it working correctly? Ideally a phone should rarely - if ever - need rebooting.

    It was weird, I would unlock my phone with an alarm icon on the status bar and a black/blank screen. I noticed this about 30 min after it was supposed to go off.

    Anything with an OS will have memory leaks, conflicts, ... etc over time. I prolly haven't rebooted my phone in weeks.

    Not really mad, just found it curious. I remember all iPhones had a no-alarm issue years ago after going from Dec to Jan; it was in the news and a bunch of NBA players were interviewed about it.

    It happens.

    Same here...I'm running stock and I've been running 10+ days without a single reboot. It's a breath of fresh air coming from Warp that reboots 10+ a day. :D
