Mobile Hangs ???
Dear Friends!

My mobile often hangs for no reason and often restarts when new msg arrives.

I keep a security code, when I complete entering the code, my mobile restarts suddenly. But it happens sometimes not always.

Have you dropped it?

Gotten it wet? Exposed it to moisture even in the form of a sweaty pocket, humid shower/bath room.... It doesn't take much sometimes to cause issues.

If you use a microSD media card, it would be a good idea to remove the card for a while and see if it makes a difference.

What about software? A third-party theme or application could be the culprit. Also pay attention to any apps that you are running that are set to operate in the background when closed. Given the crash just after entering your password, consider apps that are set to run when the device starts. If you are running a third-party theme, switch to a stock theme for a while as a test.

And free memory.... Open the options > status screen and take a look at files free. If it is down below 20MB immediately after a battery pull, then increase it by deleting or moving applications and media files from main memory. Put media on the microSD media card. Delete applications you don't need.

Thanks aiharkness!

But when I see the status, it shows 12246779 bytes File Free.
I believe sweaty pocket could be reason.

What if it gets wet?
Should I pull battery and dry set?

Twelve megabytes is getting borderline between barely adequate and maybe a problem. If it is 12 MB immediately after a battery pull, recognize that it will drop into single digits after some use and could get into a range where the OS can't function. If it is 12 MB a while after a reboot and with some apps running, then you are probably good so long as you don't do anything that uses more memory than you are using now...i.e. no new apps or themes without deleting something else first.
