    My phone has been rebooting at random times. However, I am noticing that it is occurring almost every time I open google maps. The screen freezes for a few seconds, the screen goes black. About a minute lator I either see "droid" he Motorola "M", or the verizion red droid thing. As the phone just powered up.

    Does anyone know what is going on, possible causes, and possible fixes?

    Cheers
    Odi

    My Droid X randomly reboots tens of times per day. There is no fix. Call customer care for a replacement. That's all you can do. I've replaced mine many times and mine still reboots.

    Get a different phone. :\

    Getting a different phone obviously hasn't worked for you, no offense. This sounds more like an OS issue.

    After doing a hard reset, not overclocking and formatting the SD card, I can tell you that it doesn't address the problem. Phone still reboots at random times.

    And no, I don't feel like trading it in on a refurbished phone...

    I have had the same problem. It happens a lot when I plug it in to a USB port.

    I had a lot of random reboots and finally tied it to Pandora. Haven't had a reboot since I uninstalled it.

    I was afraid someone might say that. I am a paying pandora user so I just can't imagine removing it. I have been avoiding the pandora update because of the privacy issues. Were you running the most recent version of it?

    I don't have Pandora installed and my phone reboots itself several times a day. Just did it 15 minutes ago. The phone was sitting there on the table with the screen turned off, and it just restarted itself.

    It's an OS issue, there is no fix until they release Gingerbread and hopefully that will work...

    @bonzomatic -- I had the free version, deleted it and re-installed about a month ago so it was current at the time.

    My X rebooted no less than 15 times one afternoon. Reboot after reboot. That was the only time I ever had an issue. Never happened before and hasn't happened since. Very strange.

    I just saw a post that says the problem is caused by having applications running from the SD card and the solution is to move all apps from the SD card back to the phone.

    Has anyone tried this as a solution to the problem?

    No Lock program

    My DX was randomly rebooting. It would mostly reboot when sliding to open. I downloaded the "No Lock" app and installed. No more reboots at all now for 5 days.

    Not all of my reboots occur when the screen is locked. And without the screen lock, I would have to worry about the phone turning on when in my pocket, etc...

    Mine would reboot at random too. I just tried the app. Worked for me. It will be a bit hard for it to turn on. Still have to push the home button to turn on.

    Check again. I tried No Lock, and *any* of the buttons on the phone will turn the screen on, not just the Home button. This includes the camera button, the volume, etc...

    losing the security of having your phone locked shouldnt be an answer to fixing this issue...mine has been doing it ever since I SBF'd my phone to do a clean reinstall of a custom rom....(darkslide). I wont blame it on the rom since I was running it before the SBF process I did and it had no reboot issues...(other issue though, which led up to my choice to SBF and start clean).....I was really hoping to see a solution to this issue in here....

    There should not have to be anything done to solve this issue. Just trying to give some input as to what helped mine. .... Security?? You just slide to unlock...

    Alas, no real solutions. I agree, disabling the phone's security lock is a poor solution, even if it did work, which I am not yet convinced of.

    Think about everything you do with a smart phone. Your texts. Your emails. Your pics. You may do online banking, etc... All of that readily available to whoever picks up your phone?

    No thanks. Especially when it doesn't really fix anything.

    And then key in the code, or trace the custom pattern you created.
