    Anyone having an issue where when you open the keyboard the phone just powers off and you have to reboot? It seems to happen more when I "flip" it open instead of gently sliding it but its also done it when sliding gently. Im trying to figure out if its hardware or some software. The only software I could think would do it would be pandahome but I dont wanna uninstall it and lose my setup.

    Sounds like a hardware issue:(
    Also, if it was panda home I would expect it to always happen when the keyboard changes the orientation (or whatever is happening).

    Thank god someone else is having this issue. Ive been having this problem for 2 weeks now. Sometimes its not just the keyboard for me though, sometimes ill just leave it on the night stand and come back to it and it wont power on, i have to do a battery removal.

    Then sometimes ill go to text someone, slide out the keyboard and it goes to a black screen... battery removed again..

    Gonna take it back for a new one... if they can repeat it in store, which is lame...

    You both need new phones! Your phone shutting itself off is a major issue, well it was for me because I use my phone for work. My BB would shut off randomly and Sprint replaced it with no problems.

    Your battery is probably loose

The Samsung Moment was one of the first Android Phones with a slideout keyboard.
