    I've had a few instances now of my 521 randomly restarting itself. Has anyone else experienced this? I may just do a factory reset just in case if no one has any ideas.

    No, I haven't updated recently, and I don't believe it happened while in one app in particular. I'll have to pay attention to what app I was in when it happens again.

    Happens sometimes when I'm either in MiniRSS or Podcatcher..

    My wife's 521 had random resets and it's because of the battery. The battery does not sit tight in the phone so it losses connection and then phone restarts. What I did was place a small piece of paper on one side of the battery so there's a nice tight fit. You probably can use tape and add a couple of strips on one side of the battery. Once I did that, the random restarts stopped.

    Hope this helps.

    My wife's 521 was doing exactly the same. It is now sporting some tape on the battery and not restarting constantly.

    Every once in a while it still restarts but that seems to be a "characteristic" of WP8 judging by my 920 :-(
