That tells you the BlackBerry can operate without rebooting on its own. So, what is the difference? Is it a setting that is different when the rebooting starts happening? Is it an app that you are running, or certain apps running at the same time? Look at what you do when you are away from home that you aren't doing while you are home.
Also, I was thinking it might be a hardware issue such as a loose battery, or damaged or corroded contacts, i.e. some anomaly that would be aggravated when the device is moved or jostled. Or, maybe a bad microSD card. It still could be that, so look for differences along those lines. Is there some type of movement or orientation that causes it? If you are using a microSD card, remove it and test.
Once you narrow down the conditions that are causing it, you can focus in on the actual cause. Or, if you want, reload the OS but hold off reloading your apps and test with the stock system. If you still have the problem with the stock OS and nothing else, and no memory card, then that points to a problem with the device, or perhaps with the battery.
