    Anyone else have this problem? My phone just reboots by itself maybe 2 to 3 times per day. Any known bugs?

    Once in a blue moon my Incredible will reboot. I don't think I could handle 3 reboots a day. I would probably return it. Is your phone getting too hot or is there something running in the background that's buggy?

    It's most likely a bad app with a virus or bug. I've only had it happen to me twice and I believe it was because of bad apps. But they were useless anyway.

    I've had this happen too a couple of times. Everything comes back just fine. Not sure this why this should happen, but my computer does weird **** sometimes as well. Voodoo....

    My phone has turned back on by itself a few times. Once recently I was on an airplane and the stewardess didn't believe that it kept turning on by itself.

    I haven't had this happen to me, though I don't download a ton of apps.

    There are other threads on here about the same issue, mine was doing it about 6 - 8 times a day. I exchanged mine for a new one after trying every suggestion possible and the issue went away.

    restarting

    My Incredible restarts several times a day. I don't have alot of apps, it's been happening since I got it 12 days ago. I plan to go back to the store and have them order me a new one. But I will use this one till then, it's still an amazing phone!

    Mine used to reboot randomly, but nowhere near your frequency. I had Advanced Task Killer kill things every half hour, and the problem went away. There must have been something running in the background that would cause it.

    This happened to me last week. Rebooted 3-4 times in a 20 minute period. I had downloaded the newest update to WordWise so I uninstalled the app thinking it was the culprit. The reboots stopped. Later I reinstalled WordWise and all has been well since. So in summary, I don't have a clue why it did it. :)

    Droid X same problem

    I just received my Droid X on Friday and it rebooted for the second time today, right after I sent a text.

    Still rebooting

    I will try killing some apps I don't use, but really I don't have many. I also don't run any live on my home screens. I went to verizon and told them of my problem and that I was one of many with this problem. The lady told me she had never heard of the rebooting issue and told me not to belive everything I see on the internet. I guess were all crazy. I will contact droid if killing some apps I don't use dosn't help. If it helps I will let you all know.

    I don't know if it's connected, but my phone also goes into bootloader when it's powered off and I charge it by USB. When I disconnect it I am able to turn it on like normal. I called Verizon and they had me reset the phone. Nothing changed so they're sending a new phone when it's available.

    My inc rebooted twice yesterday while on the phone and using navigation at the same time. I have had it for about 2 weeks now and that was the only time it did it. I hadn't installed any new apps or changed anything since the first few days, so hopefully it won't become a problem.

    Mine did that while we were on a car trip - it was doing Nav and Pandora and sometimes my daughter would go on Facebook too, and it would just restart, happened 3-4 times.

    I had an ebay battery in there and switched to the stock one and it stopped.

    Maybe the ebay battery got too hot...?
