    Anyone experiencing the X just shutting itself down and or rebooting itself? I've had this happen three times today.

    I've had mine power off without warning once today, and once yesterday. Battery was not an issue.

    Mine froze up while texting and required pulling the battery to get it back on. Also rebooted twice while it was sitting on my desk. I wasn't even using it. I had a HTC Incredible that was rebooting twice a day and I ended up returning it.

    Droid doesn't do rebooting. Probably you guys have something installed, an app, maybe task killer or virus protection that's causing this to happen.

    If it happens again and you're running something like that then remove it and see if it stops doing that.

    no problems with rebooting, but I do have a problem with the touch screen not responding. I have to hit the power button to standby mode, then back on to get mine to work. Every once in a while, it will just lock up and I have to do it again.

    I had the same issue. Went back to the Verizon Storeand was told by Tech it was a DOA handset. Seems there have been a few with this issue. They gave me a new phone.

    Yes I have been having this problem. It has gotten to the point when I go to the phone and I'm surprised it's still on.

    Went to the Verizon store last night but they are out of stock so I'm stuck with this POS until hopefully Thursday when they will swap me out.

    Mine just started rebooting over and over. No time inbetween. Once the screen comes up it reboots again. I pulled the battery but the cycle starts back up again. Any ideas?

    They are out of stock for 10 days so I had to pay for one to be shipped to me and get it refunded when I return the trash one. This really sucks big time. Now I have no phone until Wednesday.

    Last Year when I had got the Storm 1 I had the same problem. It just kept rebooting over and over again. I would miss calls. I took it back to Verizon Store and they told me to wait for the Upgrade. The Upgrade helped with that problem but I have an Virus on the phone. To this day I had trouble with the phone. I can't wait to get my Droid X!!!

    It would not be so bad if it was not continuously rebooting. I can't use it at all because there is about 10 seconds between reboots. Even in safe mode this happens.

    I'm starting to get worried that I won't get a replacement phone this Thursday from my local store.

    I just switched from AT&T should I go back?

    I really don't want to but I want the Droid X or Incredible and don't want to wait till August for a working phone.

    Any advice?
