    I've done a search and didn't have too much luck. Anyone having issues with your phone randomly rebooting since Gingerbread? I have an unrooted, stock DX. It rebooted 3 times on me yesterday at all random times, and twice each previous day since the update.

    What are you doing at the time of the reboots? It is possible the phone is overheating? You may also have some corruption, and need to SBF and then reupdate to GingerBread and restore your stuff.

    No. It's been flawless. I had more reboot issues with Froyo.

    Of course, I was rooted on Froyo and currently am rooted on GB.

    Mine has also rebooted a few times since I did the OTA update. and I did SBF back to froyo and formatted SD card before update. when i notice it the worst is when Im listening to music thru the earbuds or when i connect it to the dock it will occasionally reboot.
    Actually when im listening to music, it just shuts off completly and I have to hold the power button to turn it back on.
    Pretty weird. I just assumed it was a GB bug.

    Yes I have had several "random" reboots since installing the OTA Gingerbread. The latest was last night while it was charging. The ring it gives right before preparing the SD card woke me. I had no reboot issues prior to GB. Every reboot so far has been when the phone was in standby...

    The only reboot on rooted .596 has been my fault, while overclocking and undervolting the phone testing frequencies. Other than t hat my phone has been rock solid.

    It's rebooted on me twice that I know of, both times shortly after pulling it off the charger in the morning. (It's possible it might have rebooted more times overnight, without my knowledge, as I generally do not turn off my phone.)
    Due to the low number of failures, I had assumed it to be due to a faulty app or two somewhere.
    I've also occasionally had the phone freeze on me a few times on GB, but all of those times I had a lot of apps running concurrently (tweetdeck, browser running flash, lastfm, and music being streamed through the player,) so having the phone choke wasn't entirely unexpected, even if it was a little annoying. Sometimes the freeze clears out after a few seconds, and sometimes it takes a battery pull, but it's not something that'll put me off using my Droid X.

    Hmm, thanks everyone. It rebooted on me 4 times so far today. Mostly while the phone wasn't being used. I already tried a factory reset and it didn't help.

    What apps do you have installed and running? It could possibly be an issue with a running app/service.

    Reboots appear to have stopped!

    Although my phone rebooted twice after OTA GB (which I considered normal) I haven't had any more random reboots since then, that I've noticed, anyway...(fingers crossed).

    I was getting 0-3 random ones a day. Unrooted then and now.

    So, hmmmmmmm....

    I had issues with reboots in GB because I had the app BUMP installed. Took it off and it was all good. If you have BUMP, try removing it and see what happens. If you don't have BUMP, not sure.

    I am having the reboots only when I turn it off. I will hold down the power button select power off. It will power off and then it will turn back on. It happens randomly because it might be right away it turns on or it might be a minutes. Other then this problem I do not have random reboots. I need it to stay off when im in meetings and such any ideas??

    i have had random reboots as well and mine is GB from and SBF I found. I did this because I SBF'd to froyo and then loaded the rooted GB. I had a ton of problems with the rooted GB (like one day the phone was just overheating and ran the battery down in about 3 hours..) so then I wiped the whole phone and loaded the stock GB SBF. My issues seem to coincide with use of pocket caster and swiftkey x beta, but not always. Should I sbf back to froyo and take the stock update from verizon?

    You bet. Since gingerbread, my dx random reboots a lot. I want froyo back. Verizon and moto just don't seem to care. Im in the process of getting another phone. Maybe htc.
