Is your Samsung Galaxy Nexus Randomly Rebooting?

January 16, 2012

    Just when we thought we had all the bugs worked out, including that nasty volume button bug. Here comes a report of the Galaxy Nexus randomly rebooting. The Galaxy Nexus has been out for about two months, unless you’re on Verizon then it’s only been a month, and users have been reporting random reboots of their Galaxy Nexus. It seems as if the GSM version of the Galaxy Nexus seems to be affected the most by this bug. It also seems as if it doesn’t matter what your doing when it reboots, because it has been reported to reboot randomly when you check your email, check Facebook, or even when it is just sitting there doing nothing at all. But it seems that the Galaxy Nexus is not rebooting randomly as much as other devices like the Droid X.

    Google is aware of the plight of its users and is currently working out a fix, though when it will be delivered is still unknown. We are guessing the update to Android 4.0.3 will bring about corrections to many of the early problems uncovered by new Galaxy Nexus users. Anyone experiencing reboots at all the wrong times? Let us know in the comments.

      Got my Nexus (GSM) since mid december and had just one reboot (caused by Flash) so far.

      • Wcorsini

        Mine reboots less since upgraded to 4.0.2. I was rebooting 3 times/day, but now only once in 2 days. Would seem like a software problem.

        • Gabriel Balázs

          random rebooted yesterday while having a chat app open – the first time since the 4.0.2 update came – after it booted i got the notification the chat app has an update…
          so yeah anyone having reboots i think it’s because of the “not so compatible yet” background app services – even the ones that check only for a stupid update of the app…

    • Rdjr74

      Yes twice in three days.

    • davetheAndroid

      No. Just with getting a 3g signal indoors. Feel like i should be on sprint…

    • bograma

      Yeah, at least twice per week. GSM here.

    • Fidanpratt

      no a single reboot. GSM here

    • Simonblakeway

      had a few since getting it in November, never see any difference with it after. never had this on my iphone

    • Joseph Gomez

      CDMA here. Mine randomly rebooted for the first time today.

    • Dahir Sheikhali

      This is my second SGN, I returned the first one thinking it was hardware issue. I got my new one yesterday it already rebooted twice. Waiting on Google.

    • Slikweasel21

      Had it since the day it dropped on Big Red, no issues as of yet with random reboots.

    • http://www.facebook.com/Bruno.Arrais Bruno Arrais

      mine rebooted 2 times already.

    • http://twitter.com/mca5287 marcus aurelius

      No random reboots of any kind here for 4.02 GSM.

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001601483658 Yu Hu

        Same was here and I thought I have a special unit. Until it happened for the first time. There is a first time for everything, it’ll happen sooner or later. It’s not hardware problem, it’s ICS 4.0.2 issue and since you’re running 4.0.2, you’re not safe either.

        • http://twitter.com/mca5287 marcus aurelius

          Hi Yu, I haven’t had any random reboots yet, but then again maybe I’m not using it enough? It’s been one of the most reliable smartphones that I’ve had, pretty much 99% satisfied with this Galaxy Nexus.

    • Tezza54

      Yip mine reboots all by itself totally randomly. Can be in the middle of a call or just have it sitting there ……..and away it goes. powers off sometimes it will power back on sometimes it does not

      • Jo Rauchfuss

        3 reboots in a month
        4.0.2

        • Evaunitzero1

          5 reboots this week :/

    • Tmmcg

      Same here but mine just turns itself off, getting worse. Have missed many a call and appointments because the stupid thing has turned itself off . Going to chuck it, I cant afford this sort of bullshit

    • JHHahl

      had my SGN since christmas and has rebooted 2 times since

    • Bfporter1950

      I have had many rebooting issues with my Galaxy Nexus on the Verizon system. Verizon replaced my phone but I still have the rebooting issue on the new phone. It seems to happen most often when I’m navigating and talking on the phone. It’s also happened other times, but it’s still totally random. I tried using it in safe mode and no reboots. So, I uninstalled all downloaded apps and deleted my company exchange email and no reboots. I then added my exchange email back and have had more reboots. Hoping to get this fixed very soon or will be changing devices.

    • http://www.geeknik.com/ geeknik

      Rooted and unlocked Verizon GN and it hasn’t rebooted itself, but in the last few days I’ve had a large # of apps start doing the force close thing. Starting to piss me off. I don’t want to go through a half dozen returns like I did with the Droid X2.

      • Gabriel Balázs

        maybe the rooting+unlocking makes the apps force close?

    • Raul

      No reboots at all, except when I installed JuiceDefender plus, where I had to reboot once or twice. On JuiceDefender Ultimate, no problems at all.

    • Dihasmail

      Yes my Galxy Nexus is rebooting, even when I was speaking to my daughter last night

    • http://twitter.com/lestheraol Lesther Ortega

      My SGS2 does that ALL THE FREAKIN’ TIME!!! Sometimes even when I’m talking through the phone line or typing an sms, taking a picture, standing by, using an app… it doesn’t matter what I’m doing basically. Sometimes it does it several times a day and some others it can go up to a couple of days without doing it at all. The only time I have not detected it doing it is when it is connected to my laptop through the usb cable. I’m running Android 2.3.5

    • Michel Desjardins

      Have been using it for about a month with no issues… Really like the phone… Today, my Nexus is in a reboot loop! I am stuck and had to pull the battery out! Anyone experiencing this issue?

    • Desertfox5

      I’ve had the Verizon Galaxy Nexus for 3 weeks now, and it has rebooted a total of 6 times. Mostly when I am listening to music streaming (Pandora, Amazon MP3). It just happened a few minutes ago, which is why I am scouring the web for others who are having the same issue. I love the phone, but this is starting to get really annoying. Haven’t had a reboot while using the phone or navigating.

      • Gabriel Balázs

        for me it’s mostly about listening to non-streamed music, so i’d suspect the sound codec is faulty.

    • Rollercoastergnex

      Had my g nexus since december, had to return first one due to faulty volume rocker and i broke the screen. New one has just done its first random reboot whilst using the browser. Read somwhere that removing the battery for 10+ mins helps. Sucks because amazing phone otherwise.

      GN LTE
      remotes at least twice a week. Usually while in a call. But some times just sitting there.
      Good to know it’s a know issue by Google!

    • http://twitter.com/Freddroid_Apps Freddroid

      Mine reboots about 1-3 times a day, normally when I’m not doing anything at all and it’s just laying on the desk…

    • Danny

      I’m not using the phone very much so mostly it is just sitting there on the desk and reboots 6-7 times a day…

    • Anon

      Mine has rebooted 4 times tonight, each time when I was approximately 30 seconds into a phone call. It has never rebooted other than that, though, and I’ve been using it for WiFi access for several weeks.

    • Clintwilber

      My Galaxy Nexus (Verizon) has rebooted multiple times. It has done the random reboot as well as reboots while I am navigating through apps. The most frustrating consistent reboot issue I have been having is while trying to access the camera from the slider after the phone has been in idle. It will cause a reboot probably 70% of the time. LOVE THE PHONE, but I hate this issue.

    • Brad

      On my second Galaxy. Its rebooting whenever it feels like it. Its fast when it reboots so unless your looking at it you wont notice it. It seems like it can go days without rebboting then one day it will reboot 3 times. Very frustrating!

    • Joe

      Mine seems to reboot when I have Pandora on and try to multitask with browser and games. Then again it has just rebooted itself out of nowhere doing nothing. My biggest gripe is the constant data connection drop because it cant switch from 4g to 3g on the fly.

    • Guest

      Just experienced a reboot while my Verizon SGN was sitting on desk. First time that I have noticed it happen.

    • Anon

      FWIW, I called Verizon Wireless and — at least for now — the steps they walked me through have fixed the reboot problem I was having (which was, the phone rebooted whenever I made or received a phone). Here’s what they had me do: Power off the phone, remove the back plate, take out the battery, take out the SIM card, wait 10 seconds, re-insert the SIM card, re-insert the battery, power the phone on. This did the trick! Perhaps the SIM card was loose? Anyway, at least for now I can make & receive calls again.

    • EJF

      I’ve had my SGN for two days now. Poor volume and randomly “powers off” whether it’s a phone call or puttzing around w/ the apps. Sending it back. If the replacement SGN gives me the same problem I’m going to have to demand a different phone! Very disappointed thus far.

      • Clintwilber

        Google is good about fixing problems. I don’t know that I would dump the phone with it being a known issue and the fix coming.

    • LeeNukes

      Mine rebooted quite a lot with 4.0.1 but its doing it less with 4.0.2

    • Mrader82

      I am having that same problem, mine did it three times today!

    • SBerry4971

      Got my Galaxy S2 Skyrocket white for Christmas and it has rebooted numerous times while doing a variety of tasks (or doing nothing). To get it back on, I usually have to take the battery out and back in and then it tries to reinstall all the widgets on the home screen which typically messes them up for several minutes. It will do this several times, unless I ignore it and walk away and give it time to “do its thing.” It will work great for several days with no problems and then have back-to-back problems several times in one day.

      • Gabriel Balázs

        can u explain the connection to this article about Galaxy Nexus?

    • Anon

      Annoyingly rebooted during a call.

    • Gregory Dean

      Mine reboots once every couple days for no reason whatsoever. I got the 4.02 update the moment I left the VZW store on Dec 15th. My wife already has the 4.03 ICS update on her new Asus Transformer Prime Rib

    • Rampy

      I’m getting reboots almost daily. On Verizon LTE version. I’m on my second phone. Does it with no apps installed too. No rhyme or reason to it. I’ve had it do it three times in a row.

      Verizon says they’ve not heard of any problems.. Liars! They arent doing anything for me either because its past my 15 days. Wtf!?

    • Guest

      Galaxy Nexus owner in Japan since first the half of December here, and it has been rebooting like a couple times a week. (still on 4.0.1 and looking forward to an update)

    • Sdgfhjdg

      mine doesn’t really ‘reboot’, it just suddenly turned itself off…need to remove battery and put it back in to wake the phone up.

    • http://www.facebook.com/snowchel Michelle McClure

      This is my second Galaxy Nexus. I dropped the first one =(. I don’t recall the first one rebooting randomly. My phone sits in front of me when I’m at work. It’s rebooted once today and three times yesterday.

    • Rfsahae

      Just rebooted for no reason. I wasn’t even using it. First time (that I know of) in the two months I’ve owned it.

    • Javier_elizarraraz13

      My nexus reboots while playing games.

    • Dlt16

      I’am also having random reboots with my galaxy nexus phone,has happened three times since i have had the phone for two weeks.

    • mp

      yes I have 4.0.2 and every time I go on the internet browsers, and when I try to install an app it reboots. very anoying android bug…

    • http://thejamhole.com/ Mat Lee

      mine used to do this, but hasn’t in quite a while. I have the bug where once it’s in wifi, when you switch to 3G, you have to reboot the phone before it actually connects to 3G. Very annoying. I have to reboot my phone every morning when i go to work. Hopefully they fix that.

    • Leen

      Mine has never reboot. It just turns itself off and I have to physically pull the battery out to turn it back on. Running on 4.0.1

      mine just started doing it this week. random reboots – just sitting there, google music, othe random times. had it for a month, on VZW

    • Gripplies

      foolish mortals…LOL… maybe its hot and needs that air flow that it doesn’t have. everything is so water resistant these days and not heat resistant, they are coming with heat sensors, right, to prevent blowing your head off(exploding in your ear). everybody’s having to take the battery cover off and do sometime, shutting it down for a while then its fine….right? if your human bodies overheats you’d pass out(shut off) and wake up(reboot) when you’ve cooled down….right? LOL. so take and carefully poke hinden holes in the battery cover and dont talk in the rain. i am Grip Da Gr8 aka Da Gr8 One…..fandroid. look me up

      • Lfdnbp

        Initially, i thought that was the case. However, mine rebooted randomlynat 34 degrees celsius, and it didn’t at 40 degrees celsius (both temperature readings were done in different ocasions

        This seems just about right for my phone…LOL!!

    • Earleepa

      Random reboots are getting worse as time goes on.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001601483658 Yu Hu

      Android should finally get it right. My Galaxy S2 used to reboot two or three times in one day. All that until I installed some older stock ROM from Samsung. It never happened again for more than 3 months until I sold it. Now I am on 4.0.2 ICS and my new Galaxy Nexus. It reboots itself for no apparent reason, but it’s not that often, once in two weeks let’s say. And it’s when I’m not doing anything with it. Every single time it happens, it’s when my phone is idle on my desk, doing nothing. Then all of a sudden I feel that vibration and see Google logo on my screen. There it goes, self reboot for no reason.

    • CaptBananaPants

      Wow, no kidding, it did it as I was reading this article. It was just sitting on my desk, and I looked over to see the “Google” screen.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001864195574 Chris Pick

      My Galaxy Nexus started rebooting the other day. Saturday it Rebooted 14x. I got sick and tired of it continually rebooting, or getting stuck in a reboot loop. I wiped the device w/ factory reset, and it seems to have resolved the issues. I did notice it seemed worse when I was in Pandora or Google Maps. But it even rebooted randomly on the home screen. Same apps installed now, but no rebooting.

    • EventHorizon

      It was weird, today while I was at work, the Gnex was on my desk at work and some how turned off by itself. Idk if it was really off or not, but I had a friend try to call me and it still rang like normal. I tried holding down the power button to wake the phone, and or try to turn it back on, but did not work until I had to remove and re-install the battery three times. I truly hope the next update will fix the random reboot which I have experienced as well as this odd occurrence I have just described above. Gnex LTE Verizon.

    • Jgf

      had my mine since christmas and has rebooted 3 times since

    • Illnino85258186

      Rebooted 6 times in a day, twice within 20 minutes

    • Gabriel Balázs

      Just got 4.0.2 update here in Denmark (TDC provider). Wondering if it helps :)

    • JumJum

      Didn’t have any problems with 4.0.1 but todays update to 4.0.2 have introduced the issue on my GN (Sweden, carrier 3)

    • Kostya Vasilyev

      Mine does, from 1-2 times a day, to every 15 minutes – depending on how much I use it. This is Euro GSM version with 4.0.2.

      I see the system process crashing in the logcat when it does, as described by someone else here:

      http://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=22823

      Oh, and where is the 4.0.3 update? An official Google Nexus phone, is it, or not?

    • Michael

      Have about one random reboot a day.

    • Guest

      Mine reboots once a week.

      And it has turned off on me 4 times already! Meaning it will not start when I hit the power key. I had to do a bettery removal to get it to start again. Getting annoying since the phone has a cheap back cover that tend to break easily.

    • Schlissel

      My VZ Nexus has gone totally bonkers. It reboots CONTINUOUSLY until I battery pop. Put it back in and boot, blank screen, for hours. Batt pop, reinsert, reboot, only to get reboot fever again. It is obviously intolerable and unacceptable. By the way, it BEGAN as random reboots.

    • Guest

      Mine is encrypted and I use it as my alarm clock… when it reboots… no apps run until it is decrypted… been late to work twice this week due to a middle of the night reboot!!! Also had someone call after a reboot and it went straight to voicemail because it wasn’t yet decrypted and so couldn’t ring!!!

    • Galaxybog

      Happened while the hone was brand new (no apps). I thought it was just an update although it didn’t ask me anything to install or “updates found” or anything. Then happened again in the market place, accessing email and just sitting on the table. All that in the 1st day. 2 days later again, 3 reboots all while the phone was just sitting – at least that’s all i caught out of the corner of my eye.
      This is my 2nd Nexus Galaxy, the 1st one had the reception bug: no data especially on 3G. Sometimes the signal would drop out all together (greyed out), sometimes with full strength signal i could not access any webpage or email or anything. This one has better signal but still drops sometimes in the middle of London!!??!!!
      Please fix these issues. Signal and restarting problems??? Please, this is ridiculous for this type of phone in this day in age!! O_0

    • Joshuabritton34

      Mine randomly boots sometimes as often as once a day. It can be just sitting on the charger and just reboots. Its annoying. I love the phone but they need to fix this reboot problem asap!

    • Ooby Dooby

      My VZ GNex w/4.0.2 reboots when it’s just sitting on the desk or in my pocket, not being used at all.

      It also will occasionally not wake from sleep, requiring a battery pull to get it working again.

    • Gripplies

      I dont understand….my only problem is that my girl and i cant figure out which is better GNex or RzMaxx. No reboots here..

    • Ralph

      I just experienced a random reboot. The phone had been sitting on my desk completely untouched for at least 15minutes when I noticed the “Google” screen followed by the colorful startup sequence. Running 4.2.0. This has happened several times a week (that I’ve noticed) over the past month.

    • Anonymous

      My Verizon Galaxy Nexus reboots randomly about once a day. Usually happens when playing music (using PowerAmp). Feels like it’s more frequent when the volume’s loud. Sometimes reboots when phone is doing nothing in particular.

      Being an early adopter of flagship Android devices still means being a beta-tester.

      Waiting eagerly for an update that actually fixes nothing but does act as a placebo. Fuckers.

    • Rodler

      Well, here it reboots randomly all the time. ICS 4.0.3 on Masmovil in Spain. Furthermore, the battery life is very poor (not syncing, normal usage, wifi on, 3G on, usually not listening to music…) which I have the impression started at about the same time. Left to say: it annoys me!

    • Earthwormchuck

      I get the reboot a lot when im trying to listen to music

      My Galaxy Nexus on Bell Mobility began randomly rebooting about 1 week ago . Today it has rebooted at least 5 times. It says it has Android 4.0.1. I guess Canada or Bell us a bit behind in versions.

    • Joerewa

      I’m on my third Verizon galaxy nexus since the launch date 2 months ago. Every on of them has randomly rebooted in many different scenarios including just sitting there not being used. This most recent replacement rebooted twice during the setting up process right out of the box.

    • Matt

      Mine restarts or freezes once every couple days. Really annoying. I miss my iPhone…

    • Tasharrison

      I have had mine since December, on T-Mob UK, was fine to start with, but now it doesn’t go a day without at least one random reboot, usually several. I shall be doing a full reset of the phone if it continues to increase in frequency. (I still wouldn’t have any other phone)

    • Shawnmoe30

      Mine has been rebooting about once a day, but today it has rebooted twice in three hours that I know of. I don’t know how many times it reboots while in my pocket. I have Verizon, and 4.0.2

    • Lynn

      Oh yes, that’s why I’m here, trying to find out if it’s only mine or if others have had the same problems. Mine likes to reboot randomly while doing nothing, and sometimes after software updates itself. I love this phone and am only glad to know it”s an Android issue and not the hardware.

    • Jon G

      Experiencing a random reboot a couple of times a week (that i notice), including one during the middle of a phone call. The interesting thing is it didn’t drop the call. Once it was back up the other party came through like nothing had happened.

    • Steve

      had a reboot everyday for past 3 days today it booted into safe mode

    • Sammymargin

      yes this has been happening much more in the last week or so for no apparent reason.

      My galaxy nexus has been rebooting itself for about a week now, it happens radomly throughout the day and happens 5 or 6 times a day when I’m not doing anything on the phone.

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/WUMLY74DXKCCOWDE5D2BLY3TTA Brian Beddow

      Mine does it at least twice a day…probably more I just don’t notice it

      • Iliapopoff

        Here is what I found after several weeks in searching for solution:
        I uninstalled all of the apps and did a master reset on my phone. I start installing one app at a time, starting with Sense Analog Clock Widget, as this is a basic app I need in my everyday life. I gave it a couple of days before uninstall it again and continue with the other apps. It came out that when this app is not installed on my Galaxy Nexus, the phone is working great and the battery life is much longer.

        • glofp

          How do you make a “Master rebooting”. My Phone is rebooting all the time. I have even tried to hold volume down while turning the phone ón, notning happens exept it is saying “downloadning”.

            I have exacly the same problem with my Samsung GT-I5800. My phone is continously rebooting.about every 5 seconds. Nothing helps. Cannot connect it to a PC: device not recognised.

              Now I’m beginning to be very p*****
              I’ve just handed my Samsumg Galaxy Nexus over to the reselling store where I bougt it, to have them look at it (bringing it to the service dept. in DK)
              Luckily I hav’nt “rooted” it, so they can’t say that, this is the problem.
              I wil let all of you know the result when I’m having it back in about 14-18 days.

              As I told here, I delivered my phone to the reseller for a repair, and I have just received it back from repair.
              The only thing I can see they have done is,
              “replaced a component and updated”
              thats all I got to know about it.
              BUT so far, untill now, my Nexus haven’t been reebooting – so I cross my fingers.
              Therefore – use your garantie, and get your phone repaired.

      got it from fido, and returned this Samsung crap after 4 days. Had it rebooting itself 3 times at the worst possible time.

      I bought a Samsung Galaxy Nexus three weeks ago( 1St week of March). It re boot randomly. Any fix for this?

    • Melo

      Yes. It just rebooted a minute ago.

    • Schrep

      I notice it doing it about 5 times a week. For me it has only been when it is sitting doing nothing. Maybe once or twice during an app update.

    • Bobinovski

      whilst I was asleep it started suddenly rebooting, keeps rebooting in a constant circle and I don’t get chance to unlock the phone!!

      What can I do?? even if an update appears magically today my phone won’t get it as its too busy rebooting every 20 seconds!!!!

    • S Nicholas Mrstark

      3-8 times a day, seems it like to do it a few times right in a row 5 min after reboot. When will this fix be out. No idea what it could be. Ppl are reporting cm9 is working without reboots, thought maybe hardware safety or battery

    • Ppr_191

      Mine reboots randomly multiple times a day. Very frustrating :S

    • Captmorgane

      Mine shut down while charging then would not reboot. Then the next day it locked-up when I ended a phone call. I had to pull the battery. And now today it just restarted while watching a video.

    • Z0nez

      Each day. It also sometime refuse to wakeup. I had to remove the battery and boot it.

    • Rodrigo Campos

      this has to be a normal thing… I have a Samsung Galaxy Young S5360L with Gingerbread 2.3.6 and it restarts itself 3~5 times daily… :(

    • Flavio Diogo Luz

      Mine turns off twice a day, generally. I have to turn it on manually.
      But it really annoys me when it shut down while talking.

    • Alberto Santos

      mine reboots frequently and the battery drops significantly every time, whether I’m just using gameboid, Pandora, or sitting in class

    • fancy3face3

      My galaxy nexus does the same thing. It just randomly reboots for no reason. It works fine(knock on wood), just reboots whenever it feels like it. I have only had mine for a month. Hope this fix comes out soon:)

    • quickL

      mine is shutting down radomly while not in use at least 5 times per day – i hate this phone

    • Belliappa

      My nexus is a week old and its happened twice

    • GrkVixen

      My phone just started the awful rebooting issue. How have folks ‘fixed’ their phones, if, at all?

      • GrkVixen

        My carrier, Verizon, is send me a new phone. Hopefully the new device won’t have the bug and/or the new ICS update will be released and fix the bug.

    • Fotto

      Mine is random rebooting several times a day over the past two weeks quite noticable

      Mine galaxy nexus reboots frequently, but seems to be increasing in frequency as time passes.

    • Ole F – DK

      mine is rebooting constantly, even if I try holding down the “volume down” when starting, it comes with “Downloading” and nothing happens, when I click on start – is starts all over again

    • http://www.JTimothyKing.com/ Tim King

      My Galaxy Nexus (Verizon) has been rebooting randomly (or sometimes crashing) since I got it in January. Lately, it seems to be acting up more, but that might just be my imagination. I also run into other random problems which require a manual power-cycle (such as the camera suddenly becoming inaccessible, which just happened today). That’s what prompted me to ask Google Search whether other users have experienced similar symptoms, either random reboots or random crashes, or whether there’s likely something wrong with my unit. Seems the former. Anxiously awaiting 4.0.4!

    • Markalot84

      while im typing this message it is rebooting…again for the fifth time since I woke up two hours ago….it really pisses me off :@

    • zoie

      My galaxy nexus has also rebooting itself few times a day…and this time it cannot reboot, only display the “google” word again and again…did not know what is the problem…so annoying!!!!!!

    • Xaixis

      Mine has gotten extremely bad, mine is litterally every 2 mins and then it reboots as I’m trying to uninstall apps and such. Comepletely unusable right now. Extremely pissed off

    • MTK

      Mine has started doing it today. I’ve had it for one week now. I thought maybe I was (inadvertently) pressing keys each time I put it away in it’s neoprene cover.
      Is there a specific key (or combination) press that would re-boot it?

      I was having the problem where it would do a random reset maybe once a week but it was doing it less and less more recently.. until saturday when it wouldn’t turn on at all. I took it to Verizon and they said the battery went bad and replaced it which made it turn on, only now it reboots automatically about 5 seconds after it comes on. The dude at the store basically just laughed and said they couldn’t do anything because it was a software issue but I made them order me a new one anyway. I’m assuming this was not a regular issue, otherwise I’m sure there would have been a lot more complaints.

    • Larri Vermola

      My Samsung XCover S5690 reboots daily and most of the days multiple times a day. It is always as “fun” to see the PIN-code query – window on the screen, when you check have you got any calls from your family members or customers :(.

      This Xcover also loses the sound from the other end every now and then, at least on daily basis.

      I changed to this phone from another Samsung, GT-i5800, because I just got tired the earlier phone rebooting all the time.

      :(

      I have just upgraded to three galaxy s3 a few days ago and all of a sudden last night as it was charging, it began rebooting itself constantly. The phone had actually ran out of battery completely to the point where it had turned off and when connected to the charger it began this rebooting thing. Can’t do anything with it at the moment as once its loaded to the home screen it instantly reboots again! Incredibly disappointed as there has been so much hype about this model. Please someone help as its driving me insane!!

    • Janet

      I am rebooting several times a day and sometimes several times an hour. No one thing seems to catalyze it. Sometimes it occurs when I’m talking, other times when it’s just sitting there. It is a nuisance and has disrupted many call. I’m very disappointed!

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Lee-Gibson/100000498852893 Lee Gibson

      Huawei G300 – no reboots. Sometimes Bleeding Edge technology needs more work. If you would all like to sell them on cheaply we will happily buy them and await the updates ;-)

    • dave dags

      i have had about 5 reboots, all random, one was during a phonecall. no apparent reason. hope it gets fixed soon. otherwise a great phone.

    • http://www.facebook.com/jerome.gaerlan.9 Jerome Gaerlan

      The reboot is at random.most of the time it would reboot when I’m not fiddling or using it.

    • mzorro

      Overheating must be the problem , did anybody else notice how the phone started to feel a little warm shorty before it started to boot loop ? perhaps during a game or some hardworking app . Just like any computer when they cook they’re toast.

    • bean56

      mine is doing it quite frequently

      Here’s one Nexus with ICS 4.0.4 that reboots randomly. Once it had rebooted at night, luckily we had another alarm set for the morning, ’cause my phone was just asking for a PIN code. It also started to do the “Sleep of Death” about a week ago, but factory reset solved that one. Also the reboots were gone for a couple of days after that, but then returned.

      I’ve noticed that the phone gets surprisingly warm just beside the camera when I’m using internet via 3G, with WIFI this doesn’t happen.

      Thinking about getting to the service while it’s still on warranty. The problem is that I need my phone in my work and I don’t have another Android phone…

      • http://www.facebook.com/glofp Ole Funch

        I got my Nexus returned from service about 2 -3 month ago where they “replaced a component and updated” , and I haven’t had any reeboots since

    • jacob

      I have Galaxy Nexus for under 24 hours and it rebooted itself 3 times already.
      My case is not about apps being installed, it rebooted itself even hours after purchase, before I even connected to marketplace. Google Android & Samsung are taking our money for giving these kind of ridiculous phone.
