    Hey everyone! Sorry if this is a repost, but I couldn't find anything else on it. So I'm new to the whole Android scene (iBrick convert) and I have a question about my new Droid X that love with every bit of my heart =P.
    Anyway, I just set my phone down on my desk only to have that evil red eye staring back at me. Phone rebooted itself somehow. I most certainly did not slam it down or anything.....just set it there gently like always.

    Also, I noticed that when my X is on the charger, every now and then it will freeze up and reboot itself.

    Anyone have any ideas on what is going on here?

    I have not experienced quite as many unrequested reboots as you have but I did have one that occurred when I was taking a bunch of pictures and videos and flipping between the camera and camcorder a bunch of times.....

    Hasn't happened to me but did to my gf. She took it to VZW and they tried a hard reboot. It seemed to work but then it started again later in the day. She and I switched batteries and it's still doing it. She took it back to VZW and they ordered a replacement for her

    Does it seems like it can't handle all the switching back and forth? That's how mine is on the charger. It's like it can't handle scrolling through a webpage and just freezes up.

    It's the weirdest thing. It's not EVERY time it's on the charger either, it's completely random. In all since launch day (when I got it, I'd say it's rebooted maybe....four or five times.

    I did get the new OTA update for it today, so I'm hoping that will help it out.

    I've heard of a few isolated cases. Don't think it's a major issue, but QC on mobile phones from the factory is so so. About every 40th phone of the line is a dud.

    I'm definitely not expecting perfection with it since it is brand new. And with my luck I probably got that 40th phone =P

    Only happened once and I was testing just about every setting the camera and camcorder had to offer. Could be a software conflict that will shake out with an update along the way. If it becomes a real problem and seriously effects your ability to use the phone I would take it back.

    Right right. It has happened, but just not often enough for me to take it back and risk getting it replaced.

    I've had the anomaly that randomly, my X will give me the red eye thing like its booting up, and the whole system turns into landscape mode. everything including the homescreens, app tray, browser, and apps turn to landscape. I'm not sure if its a setting or what, the only way ive been able to put it back into portrait is by rebooting. Everything seems flush like it was meant to do that but I cant figure out how to replicate it.

    I'm with you...hoping that this new OTA fixed it or something else will soon. Rather not go try to replace it...who knows how long that will take :thinking:

    I am beginning to wonder if the Moto layer on top of Android is where the instability lies.

    Do a battery pull and see if it helps. My incredible started doing that worse and worse and worse until it would constantly reboot as soon as it booted. Even when the phone was wiped and not activated. However, in Airplane mode it wouldn't do it. Hence it was a radio issue. I sent it pack'n. Two other Inc's in our office are fine. My X, so far, fine.

    *......says ANOTHER prayer for this man*:D

    Well, I'm kinda happy to know that I'm not the only one that's having this issue. Hopefully an update will come out soon and clear it all up.

    I did battery pull but it just keeps restarting itself! Not even kidding, even if its sleeping, awake, battery set to performance, it doesnt matter. it jut keeps shutting off and turning on.

    Here is what i found out.. if i keep playing with my phone, it doesnt restart.. if i let it go and the screen goes out, thats when it decides to reboot. im completely frustrated right now. i tried so many different settings, uninstalled apps, nothing works.
