    I have two Euro. HSPA+ only, none of them is rebooting at random. I have a blue 8X and a black 8x. They have different firmware but no reboots. NONE!
    Under settings, phone update, switch 'off' download updates automatically. Update all your HTC apps.

    I've had my 8x for almost a week and not a single reboot. I suspect the reboots are app related from what I've been reading. The OS is rock solid. Also, I've installed a TON of apps myself and have been heavily using the phone.

    Virtually everyone. Don't mistake a tiny number of people reporting an issue as everyone reporting an issue.

    I've been using mine for 3 days without a single reboot. It's and unlocked (sim-free) from Clove (UK) but I'm using it here in Mexico.

    Yesterday I turned off NFC just to be on the safe side. I have not use for it just yet anyway. I've updated HTC Apps and have update checks enabled, even on cellular data.

    I have like 20 apps installed and only Battery Meter for WP8, HTC and Tasks running in the background.

    Thus far, no. I did, though, manually reboot after I got the phone, with no problems.

    I'm 2 weeks in with no reboots. Most people don't have them, even on here it's about 90% 'not a lemon' according to our little informal polling.

    1-2 weeks, no reboots although I had a few during the first days after I bought it. I'm glad it stopped rebooting :)
