    Hey. I'm new to Android, love it so far. I've got a Samsung Infuse on AT&T, very nifty phone. But one thing bugs me about it. Whenever particular apps update that require a reboot of the phone, my phone will spontaneously reboot, regardless of what I'm in the middle of. Text messaging, downloading apps, navigating on Maps, even in the middle of phone calls, the phone will suddenly just shut itself off to reboot with no warning. I really hope there's a way to set up Android so that it prompts me before rebooting. Like Windows, "Reboot now or later?"

    Hopefully there's a way. Anyone know?

    One thing you could do is turn off the "Allow automatic updating" for the applications that are doing this to you.

    Odd though I don't recall any program that wanted to reboot my android device. What application is wanting to reboot you?

    Usually Flash, Maps, a couple others. Facebook, too, I think. As soon as the phone comes back on, it says "[so-and-so] Updated successfully," so I assume it's rebooting to complete the installation. There's no other reason for it to turn off. It could just be sitting on my desk playing music and it'll suddenly reboot and tell me something updated.

    It's not terribly often. Once a week maybe. But it's still something that a phone shouldn't do.

    That is impossible. No android apps require reboot upon installation or update. Something's wrong with your phone. You might want to take it back to AT&T.

    Yeah I have to agree with snapper. The only app that wanted to reboot so far was Facebook and it definitely asked before.
