Default Random reboots

Please Login to Remove!

I loaded the latest and greatest OS on the 8800 I have and now my BB seems to reboot once every couple of days. No errors, not warning -- just a full on reboot. It comes back up without issue.

Anyone else seeing this problem or have any ideas?

Does the reboot happen at any time like on on a long phone call, browsing the web, etc.?

What is your file free # at Options > Status?

It hasn't been happening at certain points. Sometimes when I go to make a call and other times when it's just sitting. It hasn't done it during a call yet.

I don't think it will low memory then.

See if the reboots continue after the battery pull.

Yep, still happened (as I pulled it the other day). Don't get me wrong, it is not too annoying as it happens once a day (at most) but it's still concerning.

Sounds like it might be a firmware thing with these... Hopefully a new version will come out soon.

That was happening to my 8320... What i figured out was that it was a Media Card problem.....so i backed up my Media Card to my PC then i ReFormated the Card... that fixed my problem.

No media card in this device. But I've seen that issue before as well.
