    Mine has done it three times since I got the phone on 9/8. Those that get it more often may be unknowingly running something that aggravates or triggers the problem. For those having it happen frequently, it would be interesting to try rebooting more often to see if this reduces occurrences. I can live with it until the patch comes out.

    No. It may depend on some other trigger such as specific apps or usage. Likelihood could increase with the frequency of certain events, or length of time between reboots.

    thanks for that link!

    fwiw, I bought my Bionic on release day, and have had this happen only twice. Two too many times, but it's not a huge deal. Just wonder what's triggered it. Both times it's been in my back pocket, then I take it out and it needs a battery pull to reboot.

    I've wondered if it was the little feature of "In-Pocket Detection", that I had checked in the Settings> Display> In Pocket Detection.

    I've unchecked it, and haven't had it happen since. It may not be related, it might be...
    what?

    I didn't have it in a pocket, mine was just out on the table both times that it has happened.

    out of curiosity, do you have that "in pocket detection" feature checked in your settings?
    what?

    There is a lot more than 1 other complaint. I returned mine because of this problem, it froze up on me twice and with only 14 days to make a decision I decided to return the phone and wait for a fix. There are more than 300 posts about this problem here https://supportforums.motorola.com/t...57568?tstart=0 Please share your experiences with the support forums at motorola so that they can continue to compile information to identify the problem and come up with a fix.
