    3 times now I have had to tear my bionic out of its otter box and then Forcefully try to get out the Battery and THEN and only then will my phone reboot!!! Each time I have put my phone into my front pocket like anyother man would. ANyone else have this happen? I rooted so thought it was a root problem so I then unrooted and it has done it 2x since. Maybe Verizon should give me a new Bionic already???

    If you rooted you voided the warranty. Better hope they dont see that or you'll be charged full retail if you get a replacement.

    Best bet at this point is to do a Master Reset and start from scratch.
    SETTINGS>PRIVACY>FACTORY DATA RESET

    Thunderbolt had this issue at least 3 times a day, so far not once on my bionic.

    Sent from my DROID BIONIC using DroidForums

    Glad to see unrooted devices have the problem too. So I may just go back to root

    i have read numerous reports of this problem in multiple forums, including the Motorola support forums. it happened twice to my Bionic, phone was still on (screen was off) and hot, but completely unresponsive to the power button. i was rooted. i un-rooted and did a factory reset two days ago. i have since re-installed most of my apps again but have not yet re-rooted, just waiting to see if this problem recurs.

    I've had it happen to me twice. Screen was unresponsive and it wouldn't charge. Can't find anything that would cause it.

    I have also had this happen twice now. Once yesterday and once today. My Bionic is NOT rooted. I haven't noticed any abnormal heat or anything it is just unresponsive when I push the power button or plug it into the charger. Only way to get it on is a battery pull and reboot.

    This happened to me twice today. Both times it was in my pocket so I thought it might have been overheating that was causing this problem. I guess not thought since it's happening to others at random times.
