    In my house.
    So, this morning my HTC Magic (Rogers) spontaneously rebooted. Everything seems to be working fine, but I've never seen that. Has this happened to any one else?

    Good Point :p

    Maybe it was some sort of update we all received on an app but to be honest it will be quite impossible to Narrow it down :(

    But , As long as it doesn't happen again. It's fine by me!

    By the way , sometimes when I press the Home button the background loads and then the Widgets and icons load. It's really annoying and happens a few times a day. Anyone else getting that?

    Yes, thats a 'me too' again :)

    I always thought its a case of the OS & the hardware trying to catch up with each other.

    Annoyingly, this happens with most phones, even the much vaunted iPhone which popular opinion & Apple marketing blurb would have you believe is the speediest device ever invented, is prone to this, as I have witnessed on my wifes one.

    I just love the iPhone ads, where it shows you a speedy device in operation, then in small letters at the bottom of the screen it says "sequence shortened, usually takes a lot longer than that" or words to that effect.

    Well, I'm glad to know I'm not alone. Fortunately it hasn't happened since.
