    Last night my phone randomly started to reboot constantly and randomly. It'll stay on for up to an hour, and then just go black screen, vibrate a bunch, and eventually i battery pull and it starts up again.

    Any idea why this is happening? I tried a factory reset, same thing is happening. Also I'm not/never have been rooted.

    Any help is greatly appreciated - thank you!

    I apologize for the multiple replies, I got a few threads mixed up.

    This almost sounds like a electrical issue. Perhaps the battery is bad? Have you taken it to the store to have it looked at?

    The store I bought the phone at isn't open until 3PM monday, but you sure sound right on the battery part.

    I did some reading around the web and it seems some people have similar problems and I noticed that it usually happens when my phone shakes (inb the car, walking, etc)..

    It sounds to me like the battery may be losing contact intermittently or something else with the battery. It could also be a loose transistor or something similar.

    My recommendation is you take it back to the store and request a replacement. I hope your issue is resolved soon. =)
