    4G arrived here on October 17. In the last 7 - 10 days, I've had random reboots. Did this happen to anyone else after receiving 4G?

    Thank you!

    I have not, I've always had 4G LTE in my area. I used to get random reboots on my Droid 3, one if the reasons why I upgraded to TB, aside from the fact I bricked my D3. Anyway, the only thing I can suggest is a factory reset. Btw, are you rooted at all?

    No, I'm not rooted. Nor, have any desire to be. 4G is quite a battery drain, and I've wondered if that could cause the reboots, the phone being overworked.

    I hope it doesn't come to a factory reset!

    Thank you.

    If you want to avoid a factory reset, what you could try to do is take out the battery and leave it out for 5-10 mins, and see if that does anything.

    Well, I've spent the least four hours setting my phone back up after doing a factory reset. Hope it ends the reboots!

    It could be a rogue app. Try installing reboot logger then install one app at a time check the phone for one day before installing the next one.

    I may have found the reason for the reboots. The internal storage was too full! I received a notification, and indeed, the storage was down to <100MB! I'm not sure why, because I hadn't downloaded all of the apps I'd previously had.

    I quickly moved as many apps as possible to the SD card and cleared app cache, as well as changing one app's cache to external. Then, I slowly moved apps back to internal. I have over 1GB internal, and 6GB external.

    I had never received a notification before the factory reset. Another strange thing is how much external storage I have now. I use Astro, and routinely clear out obsolete files, but was struggling to keep even one GB free.

    Thank you all for your help.
