    Hopefully someone can help me.....until a week ago my phone has been fine but now when i shut my phone off,after about 5 minutes it turns back on! Everything works fine except that one thing. Has anyone else had this issue and knows a fix so i can shut it off without it turning back on. Ive tried removing the battery but it still does the same thing!

    Have you tried removing battery and SD Card? If that fails try s hard reset - pull battery off while phone is on.

    Or think of applications you have installed lately. Maybe uninstall them and try again turning it off.

    I understand this is a known issue, not addressed yet. A co-worker's X started doing this same thing, but only after the latest update (whichever one it was that was available about 2 weeks ago); since then updated again as another became available but no fix within it. Curiously, my own X, on the same updates does not do this but I have read about many who have this issue. Many people say that turning it off twice in succession will keep it off, that is, turn it off and do it again as soon as it turns itself back on, and it may stay off that way.

    I've seen this with the gingerbread update on the d2g, dx, and dx2. Interesting but at least its not something major!

    Have a droidx, problem of not shutting off (turns itself back on, almost looks like a reboot) when received the last software update. annoying, have to turn the phone off the 2nd time and it stays off. Not seen any official recognition of the problem from droid experts? resetting battery not a fix...clearly software issue as started when new version was uploaded a couple weeks ago. help.

    Have same repower issue, have pulled battery several times, no fix. Now have to pull battery when I get on plane as I can't be sure phone will stay off. Big pain as I have protective case for phone. Yes it started 2 weeks ago with last update, also reboots randomly now.

    Same problem here. Stays off after the second time I turn it off. It all started after the last Verizon update. A friend of mine has the same Droid X and his doesn't have this problem after taking the Verizon update. Interestingly, if I shut it off while it is charging and leave it on the charger, it doesn't restart. Anyone (including Verizon) have a fix yet?
