    So this is the 3rd time its happened to me, go to look at my phone and it is off. When i try to turn it back on, i can't. I have to remove and replace the battery to be able to turn it on again.

    The first time, the phone turned off on me while i was holding it in my hands. And it actually turns off, it doesn't just reboot. Happened before yesterdays update, and again today, so it cant be related.

    Anyone? Should i try to get a new one?

    Using a task killer by any chance? Using it aggressively? It is a possibility. I would Hard Reset first and see if it does it again. Maybe try a different battery too. I remember some people having an issues with the screen shutting off and not coming back on and having to pull the battery. Do a search for that but I think a Hard Reset fixed a few of those

    Have not used any task killers. I would prefer not to do a hard reset, but if happens again I might.

    Anyone else experienced this?

    My phone usually always restart itself if im on a call and have my navigation running. I was looking for a solution to this as well.

    Mine rebooted itself once.

    Also when I do turn it off I have to pull the battery to get it back on. I'm told this was part of the OTA update that was just pulled, so once they get that right it'll be fixed.

    Except mine doesn't reboot itself, it turns off. And it happened twice since I bought the phone, before the update, and again today. So it can't be update related.

    Dang! It happened again today .. I wonder how long my phone has been off for.

    It is actually quite irritating, it looks like I am going to visit the Sprint store today.

    I am having exactly the same problem with my Incredible S. The phone randomly turns off (about once a day) and cannot be started again, battery must be removed. I do have a 32GB card installed. I will try with the original 8GB card to see if the problem persists.
