    ok, this been going on for a few days now, and just wondering if anyone is encountering the same issue... If i tap the back of my phone or if i lay it down and it bumps the back of the phone, it reboots...ok now my wife phone does the same about a day ago, any suggestion? i was about to take it back to the corp office, i might will but just curios!!!!

    Nothing like that here,just a suggestion.If the two of you d/l anything in common recently,I'd start looking from that point in time.Otherwise,I'm in agreement w/you in taking the phone back to the point of purchase,being having a phone constantly re-booting would be a PITA to say the least.

    it sounds like a loose battery connection.

    an app wouldnt do that, i use go launcher (literally wrote the tut on it) never had that happen. had a nokia that did that once and a razr too. both times the battery pins had gotten "soft", easy to push, and tapping or dropping the phone made them loose contact for a moment, causing reboot.

    not to nebraska i dont.

    just asked a repair man. he said you can buy conductive paint (used to fix rear window defrosters) and paint it on with a nail polish brush. you should only need maybe a two hair thickness, one or two coats, just be sure not to cross connectors.
