    I've had mine since the 20th and it has rebooted itself 4 times already (not rooted by the way). Could these occurrences be the phone?

    So many reboots. And freezes requiring a battery pull. I'm returning mine. Far too many issues. And the screen. Hopefully HTC or Samsung will come out with a decent dual core for VZW. Until then, its back to the Droid 2 for me.

    So nice of VRZ/Google/moto to keep the original DX 'random reboot feature' in their second version of the phone.

    Some one please remind me why we are paying them each month for being beta testers again?

    Good afternoon. My wife and I have had the same issue after 1 hour of having the x2. First i had to explain to tech support why and how to fix sd card problem. But they were clueless about rebooting. Told me to do a factory reboot. I said ok but wouldnt that put me right back to the same position (activated with no market apps). i learned along time ago let your phone breath a couple days before cramming a lot of junk in it.

    Well i dir and the random rebootings continued. 10 times for my wife yesterday, and 12 for me. Most were just shut off's. Well here we are today and not one reboot. I think i fixed the problem. How, i have no clue. I rooted with gingerbreak. Froze bloat apps with titanium back up. And gave it a back rub. Ok i didnt do the back rub but it has not reset nothing.

    I started clicking away at cam, cam corder. Music, just opening apps like crazy the thing blazed right through. Its a beast now.

    Oh yeah my wifes rebooted 6 times. She will have to pay me for my genius.

    For those who dont want to root. I understand but, its easy and next to retard proof. I mean i did it.

    Hmm. I don't know. Nothing for me today. I've been fixing this stupid netflix issue. Finally got it done. Give it a few and see if it clears up. Seen someone say that systems need to work a week or two to work the bugs out.

    Well, im still getting random reboots and my phone just shutting off itself. Does it at least once a day. I just got off the phone with tech support and she said it could be a virus from an app I DL'd from the market and suggested a factory reset. Thing is, 90% of the apps on my DX2 are the same apps I had on my HTC Eris. You guys think I should go ahead and to my factory reset?

    Lol. Yeah VZW likes to blame the market. Go ahead and factory reset. Its a PITA I know. But then let your phone runs a couple days without the apps. See if that works. If not call tech again and tell them you have no apps downloaded then see what the excuse is. A little insight according to a VZW tech sup. Guy, the just follow a guide which gives them possible solutions. And they get paid by the call, kinda. This was his words so don't shoot me if its wrong. That's what I would do. My wifes no longer reboots so like I stated previously let the phone breath new air once you get it before loading a bunch of apps on it.

    I haven't had any reboots since I posted this lol but what I did do that night was root and turn on all animations in the display settings once I turned all animations off I stopped getting reboots so you guys might want to see if its on or not.

    Rooted, and removed bloatware. It was perfect last night, however, today it keeps randomly restarting. Only thing different today than yesterday, was I added some music on my external SD card.

    I've never rooted and I get reboots all the time. It's very frustrating.

    My Droid X2 is not rooted, but randomly restarts. Other times, especially when charging, it locks up with a black screen and won't do anything. Even the power button on top does nothing. Have to pull the battery to get it up and running again. Thought the update would solve it...nope. Went into the store a week ago - did the factory reset and started over - same issue. In fact, tonight, it rebooted twice within 5 minutes, just sitting on the end table next to me doing nothing. Called tech support earlier this afternoon, and they were so surprised mine was acting up, because NOBODY is having the same problem I am. So the warranty replacement phone is supposed to be here tomorrow...we'll see. Apple is looking more and more appealing.

    I've never rooted and I also get random reboots. I hoped the GB update would fix them, but it didn't. Tried a factory reset after the GB update - and that helped - but didn't eliminate them entirely. I get them when the phone is on the docks (car and multimedia) mostly, but it's also happened a time or two off the dock. You're definitely not alone - and VZW KNOWS this - even if they pretend that they don't.
