    Have you tried a factory reset? I agree that it likely isn't overheating as it occurs when nothing is going on and the phone isn't warm. And a short wouldn't have such long gaps between.
    I'm worried because I don't want to have to go without my phone for a week if they want to send it off - and I don't want a two or three month wait for a software update.

    EDIT: I should add, HTC told me to give it a factory reset, but I think they just didn't know what was up.

    Not done a factory reset as my phone is all nicely set up and don't want to have to do it all again. If it transpires this is software I'll be willing to do it though I agree I don't think they know what is going on. Either way it isn't tooooo much of an issue for me at present.

    Have done a factory reset, and maybe 30 mins later had a reboot. I did reinstall all my frequently used apps. I am not sure if it might be one of the htc apps, gonna uninstall those and see.
    I also want to know very soon what kind of issue this is so that I can just return it for a new phone instead of having to send it for repair later.

    EDIT: we do know at least that it isn't some kind of flashing error as a reset doesn't help. Also, if it is an app it is probably a HTC one, since our app overlap is likely small and we know it isn't Facebook. As well as all this, it could be a firmware issue. Or, it could be hardware, but I have never heard of this kind of problem before - usually it would be related to the phone not heatsyncing effectively. It seems too common to be hardware, hardly any have sold and some people have both theirs and their partner's doing it. My money is on an HTC enhancement or firmware.

    I'm curious, has anyone tried uninstalling the HTC Hub? It has to be running in the background in order to update the clock tile in real time, right? Maybe that's an issue.

    It's a brand new phone on a brand new OS, so teething problems while annoying, shouldn't be totally unexpected.

    Hopefully it will all be resolved before too long, hang in there guys.

    I haven't had these issues and about the only thing I can think of is that I disabled tap and send, something for you folks to try?

    It can't be app otherwise MS screwed up something fundamentally. App can't have a right to force reboot. Anyway, HTC Hub was not installed on my and no difference. I would believe it is a firmware issue. Other option would be faulty memory and could depend on how much you are using for example. I know that WP devices had those issues on 1st and 2nd generations. I had 5,5Gig free on mine. Anyway sent mine to service, although not expecting too much.

    Let's hope they show what great customer support they have. It is one reason why I'm, so confident about getting a Nokia.

    Whilst I agree that no app should be able to cause a reboot, it could always be a bug that allows it. Since uninstalling the htc app and the connection setup app yesterday i have seen no reboots. I have tap and send enabled. I will keep updating my mileage on the reboot front without these apps. Htc live chat can't read external web pages so couldn't read this thread rather stupidly but at least should be aware.

    I agree that most apps shouldn't cause the phone to reboot. But some of the OEM apps have deeper privileges that are not available to normal apps. That's why it's possible for them to cause problems. Not saying that the apps are the cause, just saying that it's possible.

    To owners, please keep us posted on how uninstalling HTC Hub or other apps help or didn't help. Mine is on the way and I hope it isn't a hardware issue.

    Thanks!

    Not sure if it has made any difference but there was updates released for Attentive Phone and the HTC apps yesterday (08/11). I wonder if the Attentive Phone part may be causing troubles as its not an app as such, its more of a system service that is always running.

    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.

    I am happy to be corrected if I am wrong but the HTC app is installed by default on shipping.

    EDIT: Happy to report no reboots thus far since the removal.

    Two reboots in five days here - one upon trying to use NFC with Android phone, and second just out of nowhere... not sure what to think of it.

    Random reboots here since I got my phone Monday. Sometimes is messaging, sometimes when not in use. I notice some people say Xbox SmartGlass could be one app that causes it. I still wonder if its HTC hardware.
