    Seems like a dumb question, but what are the symptoms? My phone sits in a holster most of the day. I can't say that I have ever had it reboot while I was using it. Am I just lucky? Is there some kind of log to check?

    TIA

    one way I check is leave my.browser on a web page. Then when I click on it and its on the Google search engine page. Then I know it rebooted. Also check the battery up time and if the number is lower than last checked then it rebooted. Can also hold your home button and if you have no apps listed then it rebooted.

    Just keep an eye on your battery stats.

    -settings
    -about phone
    -battery

    Keep track of your up time. It resets every time you reboot your phone... or it reboots on its own.

    Mine can go 4 or 5 days without a reboot then I'll get 2 or 3 in a day. Frustrating, my last reboot was during a phone call.

    That's some great ideas. I never would've thought of the browser trick. When mine did it I always had it on me so I'd feel the vibrations during the reboot, but this is great for people who don't have it sewn to them like I did.

    Wow...the post above me was, without question, wholly necessary. :rolleyes:

    Anyway, I would check by pressing and holding the home button. If your recently used apps list is full, no reboot. If it only has one or two items, then your phone rebooted.

    Hold the home button down and see if there's any Apps. Also, it kills your battery

    You should know. Mine was rebooting in the middle of phone calls, texting, etc. Very annoying! I rooted the other day and have not had a reboot yet.

    Didn't think the Thanks button was appropriate considering it wasn't helping me, but wanted to give him an atta boy just the same. Sorry if anyone was offended.:rolleyes:

    If it reboots itself you got the problem. If it doesn't you don't. :D My first TB had the problem like CRAZY!!! Drove me INSANE rebooting a dozen times a day.
