    Yeah, sometimes I wonder whether the reboots have anything to do with the phone trying to find a 4g connection. At home, where there is no 4G, my phone reboots itself 2 or 3 times a day, usually early in the morning. At work, where I have 4G, the phone doesn't reboot. When I am driving to work and am passing from the limit of the 4G area to where I can get 4G (about 2 blocks further), the phone usually reboots itself.

    This is absolutely true. I live in LA and rarely out of 4G. I was in Fresno the other week and it rebooted at least 7 times in 8 hours. Same thing happened in Palm Springs, but I was on vacation and didnt have it with me most of the time.

    Since I have been back in LA/OC I've had 0 reboots. battery life has actually been good lately too.

    and the mystery continues...

    Same here. I disabled 4g the day I got it. Maybe that's why I've never had a reboot?

    I live in a 3g area but wandered in to a 4g area & did have a reboot. I was using my GPS too so it was very annoying with the random boot.

    my 1 and only noticed reboot (when i was actually using the phone), it was in a 3g area (a basement near a window). it may have been because the phone picked up 4g for a split second(?) and rebooted???

    I disabled LTE that day with the radio toggle program and it still rebooted that much. I sure wish they would hurry up with that update (*cough...Gingerbread...cough*)

    My 2 cents:

    My area just got LTE. Reboots drastically decreased. I work in a 3G only area. Still have many reboots here.

    My phone rooted running das bamf 1.7 in 4g all the time and I've never had a reboot. My girlfriend not rooted in 4g most of the time and her phone gets reboots all the time, so it's not a 4g issue.
