I concluded that it was behaving just like a battery pull maneuver each time. I suspected an intermittent electrical disconnect between the battery and the circuitry. I took the phone back to a Verizon store, traded for a new 9550, and have had no further issues. My problem may have been a unique one, or perhaps there is a build-quality issue with the 9550?
This is the best explanation I have seen for this problem but I fall under the same category as well.

I initially thought my first S2 had issues becuase I dropped it (while still in box) along with my S1 which actually hit the pavement. To no surprise the S1 was still on and ready to go. Long story short I am on my 2nd S2 and it is still restarting once it is touched.

Heading back to the Vzw store for a 3rd just because.

edit: why in the world does it take 10-15 min for this device to be usable?? SX86 chip inside??? Maybe DX
