    (UPDATED 1st post)Four touch buttons stay lit, phone freezes then reboots

    This issue is becoming more and more of a problem. It appears to be doing it with increased frequency.

    Ill hit the lock button on my phone just before i place it in my pocket, the four touch buttons almost always stay lit for either around 10-15 seconds or it reboots my phone. I'm averaging about 2 reboots a day now. It's getting really annoying.

    Does anyone have any tips at all on how to fix this?

    Has this been happening to a lot of other people?

    EDIT: I believe it has something to do with the amount of tasks your running, leading to almost max usage of the D2's memory. Or it could be a particular app that is causing the problem. After my phone freezes, then comes back (if it doesn't reboot), I'll post a list of apps my phone had in memory.

    EDIT 2: Okay my phone has frozen twice recently, both for periods of about 10 seconds. Luckily it didn't reboot, so I can list the apps currently "in memory".

    Alarm and Timer
    Amazon MP3
    Backup Assistant
    Battery Indicator Pro
    Calendar
    City ID
    com.motorola.atcmd.plugin
    com.motorola.android.syncml.service
    Contacts
    ContactsData
    Data Manager Service
    Engadget
    Facebook
    Global Unplug
    Gmail
    Google Voice
    Handcent SMS
    Lookout
    Maps
    Market
    Mediashare
    Messages
    Music
    My Uploads
    My Verizon Mobile
    NetCounter
    SetCPU
    Settings
    Skype mobile
    SMS Backup
    Social Messaging
    Social Networking
    Sync Service
    SystemPanel (what I use for task killing now)
    Text Messaging
    Toggle Widgets
    Voice Commands
    Voicemail
    VZ Navigator
    Weather

    Currently have 71M available. As soon as I hit the lock button just now, it froze for about 20 seconds, when the buttons shut off I hit the lock button again and it said 79M is now available.

    Okay, so if its an app that is causing the problem it must be one of these. If it's not an app, it might be because of the memory being maxed out but I'm honestly not sure.

    If everyone could just check, after their phone freezes, and if it doesn't reboot, check to see what apps are in memory and compare them with what I have and maybe a more technical user could narrow down what they think the culprit app is.

    happening alot to me too, its starting to get annoying
    The lights stay on for a while and it randomly turns off and restarts by itself, sometimes the lights turn off after a while and it works ok.
    maybe something with the last update or a bug?

    Anyone else noticed that this is slowly becoming a mass issue here? Is it because of the recent update or what?

    Need a bit more info to help, are you rooted, oc'd, running custom ROMs, kernels... honestly it could be a number of things and without more info I don't think it will be possible to trouble shoot your problem.

    Got my gf a D2 the day it launched and haven't had a single issue with it yet...that wasn't app related.
    We need to see if those of you with this issue have common apps and/or behaviors. To quickly eliminate a couple, are any of you running task killers or any kind of anti-virus apps? How often are you rebooting your phones? Are you using the home button or back button to exit applications?

    I'm not rooted, so that eliminates a lot of things. I run the free task killer. Usually just home to exit an app and then use the task killer to kill the apps that I had running with the bloatware de-selected because they can't be killed it seems. Happens about once a week so far.

    Ok no guarantee it will help but you should ONLY use task killers to kill nonresponsive apps. Instead of pressing home when you leave an app use the back key that will basically always give the os the hint that you are done using it and handle it in its own time.

    I have "system monitor". It has a task killer built in, I use it seldomly, for when an app is acting up. Phone reboots at least once a day due to lights staying lit and freezing. I use home button if I plan on going back to the app, back button for when im done with it and want it to close.
