    ok, is it normal for something like that to happen or could there be some hardware issues with my phone?

    could just be an electronics glitch.
    battery pulls are fairly common for all battery powered advanced devices.

    if it keeps happening repeatedly THEN you've got something to worry about which may require a replacement.


    but, if you're still within your 14 days and would be more comfortable then by all means go to VZW and get a NEW replacement.

    Mine did this a few times. My eventual solution was to go to settings, battery and select the 'performance' profile. Apparently the battery saving profiles are buggy.

    Its a known problem with the Bionics. Some people get it more frequently than others. I've only had it twice the first two days I got it and it hasn't happened since. Hopefully it will be fixed in the software update in later October or early November.

    Sent from the rocket in my pocket, my all powerful DROID BIONIC.

    With my D2 i had to pull the battery quite a bit. So far with the Bionic Iv had to do it once or twice. Not a huge deal really.

    I've had to do a battery pull with mine a couple of times also (only I had opposite problem of the OP - instead of not starting - it froze up) - there was something going on at the time (darned if I can remember what now, though) - but it was same same each time ... It happens ... It's happened with all of my phones - all of my husbands phones ... just about everybody I know their phones same thing ... 's kind of like Windows locking up ;o)

    I had a number of these occurrences... did a couple of resets, and, on the last one, did not reinstall GO Launcher or its weather widget. I haven't had the problem in over a week.
