    just want to if anyone S2 doing the same thing like mine.

    I have the S2 for 3 days now and just now and yesterday the phone just shut itself down and restart again. I think it happened 3 times in two days. So, I want ask if anyone experiencing the same thing and should I return the phone and get a new one?

    Doesn't sound right...

    Can you trace back to an app you've installed maybe?

    I've just had something similar where the operator welcome screen came up out of nowhere. However checked the uptime and it has not reset?

    I have had the same issue. Got the phone on Thursday and has rebooted randomly approx once a day. I think it did it last night, you can tell by looking at the battery usage graph...there is a big drop when it restarts plus the time on battery does not match the actual time it has been on.
    I've been advised to factory reset the phone and see if it disappears.

    Only got it a few days ago so don't think a factory reset will help. I'll basically be back to square one once I've got the apps on again :D

    For anyone that has the same issue, have you checked the uptime in settings...about phone. Only say that because need a distinction between reboot and the splash screen coming up.

    I've reset it today so I'll see how it goes. I'll report back here.

    So far so good, hasn't restarted as yet - touch wood.

    Haven't seen it again myself either (unless of course it did it in silent mode when I wasn't looking!). At least this doesn't look like a daily issue :rolleyes:

    It's back! Done it twice in the last couple of days. Have seen some other people having the same issue, think I may have to return the unit.

    are you using a task/memory killer?
    maybe one of these apps are set to auto kill the OS service (or similar), hence the restart.

    No I don't. I have kept apps to a minimum to try and resolve the issue.

    It's not a constant problem, but at least every three or four days my new S2 (unbranded, sim free, from CPW, on KE2) suddenly reboots. It does it quite quickly, and occasionally two or three times in an hour or so.

    Has anyone else experienced this? I love the phone, it's the beast the SGS should have ben in the first place, but the random reboots are irritating.

    I've had my SGS2 for 7 days now and it has never rebooted itself on me. Sounds like it's a problem with your handset...

    Mine did it again last night. Anyone any idea of the best way to help localise the issue? Doesn't seem to be a pattern.

    just to give you guys heads up, I've had my SGS2 for a week now and not a single reset.. I'm running KE7 and rooted... a handful of apps... Never had a crash (apart from trying to run Dungeon Defenders but that crashes on every SGS2, still, it was a ctd, not a restart).

    Mine did it twice more just yesterday where the screen just locks and can't restart it easily, so swapped it for a new one at CPW. No problems with them at all and very helpful. New one has all the latest upgrades on so it must be a new build.

    No problems today. Also headphone socket is ok on this one.

    what was wrong with your headphone socket before?

    caused crackles through the headphones. Would only get worse - seen a few people with same issue.

    Someone mentioned Samsung has great quality control...they clearly dont have many Samsung products....Samsung are a long way from perfect.

    meh. it may have been me lol
    i've owned 3 Samsung tvs and never had issues with either except when two of them were shipped one was broken (screen) and the other got a thick vertical line down the left side after a week. i blame this on shipping companies not being careful, though. tbh, only Samsung products i think i've owned...

    iunno, here's to hoping i have no issues!
    thanks for the reply on the headphone jack. will definitely check it.

    Mine's been doing the same. Just upgraded firmware to KE7; crossed fingers that'll solve the problem.
