    Well I have dropped my phone twice in the last week. Both times when I picked the phone up it was rebooting. The first time was from my waste onto concrete which I can understand it turning off. Tonight it dropped from around my belly button to the carpet. Plus I did one of those stick your foot out so it absorbs most of the force before it hits the ground(which was soft carpet). Again it was rebooting when I picked it up. That 2nd drop it barely hit the ground since I absorbed all the force with my foot. Are these batteries jarred easily with force? Just asking because every phone I have had and dropped never rebooted or turned off unless the battery flew off. The phone has a seidio case on so no scratches but dont know why it reboots so easily. Does anyone else notice this or am I just being dumb and need to stop dropping my phone.......Dont answer that last question.

    I'll do you one better. Dropped my phone from like 4-5 inches TOPS onto my wooden nightstand when I meant to set it down lightly. Rebooted. I'm guessing it's a better safe than sorry kinda thing? I've done the foot trick as well onto carpet from mid-chest (I'm 6'2") and it didn't reboot...

    I guess your SD card may be striked....

    Haha! My Droid has done that a couple times too...

    Sdcard striked? What do you mean? It was jostled?

    maybe the shock from the impact shifts the battery to the point where it stops making contact and the phone loses power briefly causing a reset/reboot?

    What he said!

    From your avatar I assume you are a pilot. Just wondering what preferred app is when it comes to weather?

    I dropped my Droid and then got the official 2.1 OTA. Live Wallpapers, 100 homescreens, CPU clocked to 2Ghz. It loads things before I press them. It's thought activated, knows when I don't want to talk to someone before they even call, and it makes every style of egg known to man, but only when I WANT eggs...

    Droid DOES.

    I just dropped mine to see what would happen. It turned into a snake but then turned back into a Droid when I picked it up again.
