    I have had 1 reboot. I really watch connecting my Bluetooth and what order I do connect. I noticed that I had just unplugged from a PC sync and went straight to trying to use it. I can't see it being hardware. My Skype has been working fine.

    Right now I wish i could swap to a lumia 920 - not on my carrier unfortunately come to think of it would swap for a nokia 3310 right now at least the damn thing would work. And i could play the original snake!!!

    if I compare mine phone(i have only 3 reboots 1 per day, for now,i by phone 10 november), to yours I discover the difference between firmware revision number-mine is 1532.20.10022.401
    maybe this is because of different firmware number?and one more difference is bootloader version-mine is 0.0.1532.20(156246),everything else is the same.

    Ok my wife just got her first non reboot issue. Every time she tries to delete a text msg it hangs saying deleting and never does. She has to power cycle. Anyone using exchange for Gmail? She set up her work email and I'm thinking it is in the accounts setup and how Microsoft handles this in the OS.

    Got my 8X on the 19th, and started having random reboots by the end of the first week, and they seem to be happening almost daily now (just had one 20 minutes ago). Just in the last 3 days I've had 2 cases where it froze up completely during a call. The first time, it eventually rebooted itself. The 2nd time I had to do a hard reboot. At least with my HD7 I could pull the battery out if it froze up. :(

    Ok update. Had my wife uninstall Skype...didnt fix it. Had her remove her work Gmail and that fixed her issues. Secure SSL on back end causing the issue. Her personal Gmail works fine. Somehow the accounts have issues...find which one it may be and remove it. See if it fixes the issues. And yes her work email did appear to be working, skipping the SSL somehow.

    I've had a couple of restarts in the first week and one morning where the phone had shutdown overnight. No problems in the last few days though.
    That's it! It has to be! I had all the problems people have been reporting in addition to SIM card errors and stock apps continually crashing. I reset my phone to factory settings a week ago and it functioned fine until today. Now that I think about it, I updated Attentive Phone yesterday night! This makes lots of sense because like you said its not an app but rather a feature built into the firmware by HTC. Ill try resetting again and not updating Attentive Phone to see if its actually the issue. Ill report back on results!

    I've updated attentive phone with no issues. Add an exchange email with something off skew and see what crazy crap happens. Reboots, msgs don't send or receive, apps drop out to start screen.

    Love my new HTC 8X blue from T-Mobile, but have been getting multiple reboots on my first day of use. Never had any problems with HTC HD7 (except the flash on camera) and and also hoping this is solved quick and won't lead to any long-term issue -- hope to use phone for a while.

    For what it's worth, I started encountering SIM card errors after two weeks or so. I was also having reboots every other day or so. After swapping my SIM card last Saturday, I haven't had either since.

    I am able to reproduce The reboots by playing a lot with touchdevelop for coding a Player that is able to resume playing audio books. The coding only starts and stops the internal player. After several starts to test the coding the player sounds crazy. Additionally starting some other programms like IE and the phone reboots. So for me it looks like a memory and task handling problem.

    Htc is going to call me back about my idle battery drain after recording video. 6% a minute! That is crazy. Seems Skype is not an issue with any of this. WP8 was not ready, but hey maybe htc can get Microsoft up of their u know what and fix it right the first time.

    I'm still having reboots despite the update and the sim card error is happening quiet regularly too.

    Is anyone else still having ongoing issues?

    I'm still having issues as well but reboots far less now. I was rebooting 1 time every 1.5 days, now it more like every 6-7 days.

    All reboots occur when I receive a txt msg and go to respond. Annoying part is, if a reboot does occur I lose the incoming txt message. Has happened 3 times now. If I wait an unspecified time before replying it appears to stay on phone after reboot. Maybe it backed up to cloud prior to reboot.
