    I just got the Droid Bionic back in June. I have had problems with the phone shutting itself off, for no reason, and not coming back on until I have taken the battery out. It does not happen all the time but when it does, it happens several times in a row. The battery is fully charged when this happens, sometimes even right off of the charger. Any suggestions? Is it the battery or the phone?

    I had the same problem with a new Bionic that I received in June. It would completely shut down every 2 or 3 days and the only way to start it was to pull the battery or plug it in.

    I contacted VZW and they exchanged it with another one (certified new). That was almost a month ago and this one has never shut down. I'm using the same battery that I had in my first Bionic.

    Call VZW and swap it with another one.

    Most definitely the phone. Read below.

    ^^^^^ This.
  4. One thing not mentioned yet ... make sure the SIM card is firmly and squarely seated.

    And to save your fingernails ... instead of a "battery pull" ... hold down the volume up/volume down/power buttons until a menu appears and then disappears. This is the same as a "battery pull" followed by a power on.

    If the SIM positioning doesn't help this one ... as John suggested ... get it replaced.
