    New Droid 2 Global -- Random Reboots already???

    Good morning!

    My Droid 1 finally gave up the ghost, and the internet earpiece speaker gaveout entirely. It was useless as a phone.
    I went to VZW, bought a new D2G and it seems to be working fine, other than the fact that it has already rebooted on it's own 3 or 4 times in the matter of 2 days or so.
    It's still stick, not rooted, and I have a similer app load that I had on my Droid 1 -- which didn't have random reboots.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks!

    First thing that comes to mind is that you may have a task killer or antivirus. If you do please get rid of those.

    My second thought is you have an app that isn't playing well with this O's. Hard to say what that may be. Sometimes the "helpful" people at Verizon install things we don't really need. Now you're going to find a lot of blur and other bloatware but that shouldn't make it restart.

    Good luck to you hope you can figure it out. If all else fails, factory data reset then if it still happens get another phone.

    No antivirus -- the only task killer is the 'Verizon' provided crap that I've not bothered to open. Unfortunately I can't delete it short of rooting. And I've not yet researched rooting this thing yet.

    I did use launcher pro to hide a lot of the useless crap that Verizon installs on this thing. (VZ nav, Blockbuster, task killer, etc.)

    You should still be able to uninstall the task killer

    Don't have the Task Killer app on my R2D2...maybe that's just on the D2 Global.

    Anyway, the above posters are correct...task killers are evil and you should uninstall that first.

    I noticed random reboots on my R2D2 when I was using GO Launcher EX (which features a built-in task killer). My phone would randomly reboot one or two times per day. Since I've uninstalled, no more issues with that.

    Don't mind me, I'm just piggybacking on the thread here. On my first post, too!

    Anyways, I've been having this issue since January when I got my D2G. After a week or two, my phone would freeze and then soft reboot (ie DROID loading screen). Did that for about a week, once a day, and then it stopped for about a week. Then it did it once a day for a few days, then became sparse. It does it maybe once every two or three days on average, sometimes a couple days in a row.

    It's not a major thing, but annoying for sure. My only concern is if I received a bad phone.

    I did install Advanced Task Killer back in January, not long after getting the phone I think, so upon reading this I uninstalled ATK and am hoping that fixes it. I do not run any antivirus apps, either, as I did read they were a no-no (and silly, in my opinion, on a phone).

    Anything else to check for in general? I haven't had time to take it back to the store else I would have just had them give me a new one hah.

    My R2D2 Droid has been randomly rebooting. I watched a video stored on SD card and had to leave my phone after the video ended. when the screen timed out and the phone was just sitting I heard my R2 beeps and sure enough the phone rebooted itself. I guess i got to call Verizon on this..
