I immediately updated the OS to the .113 version. The upgrade went smoothly.
In the last 24 hours since the upgrade to .113 my phone has reset about 6 times. Twice when downloading files from the Internet. Several times when doing nothing at all.
Are others having problems with Resets on the .113 OS? Is there a more stable version (regarding Resets)?
Any other ideas, or should I just throw this POS through the window of my local Verizon store???
This phone isn't exactly the most stable device around. Reboots are unfortunately a real concern for many owners. Sometimes it's caused by too little app memory due to not closing programs properly or poorly written code in applications that drain memory excessively.
You can try and use the Close or Exit command when leaving a program rather than using the red End button. That will ensure that your programs have been properly closed, freeing up app memory in the process.
The official .75 OS was full of lag and generally considered slow. Upgrading to the newer betas does come with issues, though reboots are usually much less frequent except as noted above.
If all else fails, you could try to reinstall the OS. You may have gotten a corrupt version. Try a different download location.
Please let us know. The phone really does have a lot of potential. It's just frustrating at times.
