    I have done 4 factory reset so far over the past month. Things were a little better with resets happening only once every other day or so. I had the constant sync issue for a day, and since yesterday I have had 7 reboots that I am aware of. This is really getting old...

    I got my phone the day the TB came out. I can count TWICE since I've owned this phone that it rebooted on its own. I haven't seen it happen in well over a month now. I'm rooted and using dosBAMF for my ROM.

    I have had mine for about a month.

    I did the OTA update the day it came out and I haven't had a single random reboot yet.

    I've noticed mine is getting worse as well. It happens the most when I'm in Navigation mode and it's happened pretty much daily to every other day. Tonight it freaked out on me - i was at ~40% power and a half hour later the phone just shut off completely. I also had trouble syncing the other day. Now that I think about it, this phone's problems have been getting worse. hopefully they send us a fix soon because i really do not want to trade it in for a refurbed unit.

    I've noticed three or four so far today. Keyword being noticed. Battery life is better with 4G off, but I get more reboots. Go figure.

    When your phone reboots it kills 5% to 10% battery life so if you noticing your phone battery life dropping like a rock it could have been going through a random reboot while in your pocket or sitting to the side. I rarely have random reboots but I still do. Das bamf was built off the leak ota it's still capable of a random reboot though rare. I had one of my rare reboots happen in my pocket and the other when I was using the VZW mobile hotspot app.

    I've been using Bootlog Uptime from MuMu21. Market Link here. or http://t.co/dZDSwTL

    Since May 21 I've had 15 reboots and only one that I caused by restarting the phone. As far as I can tell they are completely random. 3 days and 17 hours is the longest uptime and 9 minutes is the shortest....sigh.

    I really like the phone but the reboots are real downer.

    edit: Oh, I'm rooted and stock MR1 (recent OTA leak) with much of the bloat frozen with TB.
