    I have the same feeling even though the focus is amazing I really like the Dell Venue
    but I will wait a few weeks just to make sure Dell has fixed all the problems they had when they first released it for example the sim card issue and the camera quality problems

    If they fix that its a beautiful phone ...

    Had my first reboot today. Have the Sandisk 32gb class 2, no weatherbug though. Has been running fine otherwise.

    I've gotten several. Usually don't notice. I don't have a memory card installed so it seems to be independent of that

    Purchased the phone a month ago, first 2 weeks all was working well. 3rd week installed a SanDisk 16 GB Class 2 microSDHC Flash Memory Card SDSDQ-016G, formatted and setup the phone again, installed a bunch of apps and a lot of music. Total space was 22GB, once I had everything installed, free space was around 8GB. Phone would restart once in a while, but then over the Christmas break I purchased Need for Speed. Since the install, the phone would restart all of the time, almost every half hour. I took out the memory card, formatted, setup the profile, installed the apps, including NFS, and moved about 5GB of music. My free space is around 1.5GB and have not received a reboot. Though all the posts, I think the issue maybe with the size of the memory card, it will work find with 8GB or less, over and the system becomes unstable. I hope this is the most for front update MS/Samsung has on their list, I find this far more important then copy/paste.
    Once they have the memory issue figured out, figure out the Blu-Ray Digital copy/Zune issues. No point and having this fixed until the memory is corrected.

    Add me to the list :( Purchased Samsung Focus and added 32GB SanDisk Class 2 microSD... everything was going well for first week or so, but now Focus is spontaneously rebooting. I'm planning to remove the extra memory and wait for an update <fingers-crossed>.

    my rebooting has gotten way out of hand. I tried removing the card and doing a reset but I keep getting errors now about the memory being full. >.<b

    Its got to be related to how the OS handles memory. I don't even have an additional memory card in there and I recently started getting freezes, reboots and the audio stuttering was even worse. I probably had at least 1.5 - 2 gigs free.

    I went through and uninstalled all my apps I've downloaded and so far, so good. I don't know how much memory I'd been using before (I imagine I was close to 5-6 gig mark). I haven't removed any music yet. But right now I have about 5.5 gigs free.

    After reading success stories with the Patriot Class 4 16GB microSD, I decided to purchase one from Amazon.com. I just installed it... just hoping that it doesn't reboot like my Sandisk Class 2 32GB disc did. I'll report back in a few weeks with an update... wish me luck! ;)

    I bought it the 2nd week it was released ATT sold me an SD card for 16 gb and they said its compatible. After 2 months it started abruptly restarting. I believe at some point I surpassed the 8gb internal storage (Zune music) which might have caused it.
    But it is not just random restart, every once a while it will reset to factory settings but if I go to Settings--> about-->reset (restore default and remove all data) it will restart with all the old information and settings, this is weird and freaked me out the first time, trust me calling ATT and Samsung didn't help at all, MS only has twitter support which was not online in the night.

    Anyway anyone else with this issue and know how to fix it? It is bothering me now but not annoying , but one of these day I am sure it is going to reset to factory settings in the night and the alarm wont go off.

    No rebooting issues with Patriot Class 4 16GB microSD, but I removed it, nonetheless. Due to read/write access speed issues, the lag for launching and using apps was not worth the extra storage. to me Back at 8GB until something "official" is released. :(

    it hasn't been a year since these phones have been out so we all still have our 1 year microsoft warranty--so bring it in to at&t and get another one. that's what i did.
    my phone would restart, gradually becoming more frequent until i factory reset it; then, maybe a month reset-free, it started doing it again. i don't know if it's the memory card or what (sandisk 16gb), but something's happening.
    so i got a new one. well, refurbished actually, from at&t's device center or wherever.
    went into a store, explained my problem, they sent me to a device center, i explained my problem again, and they gave me a new one without question.

    so now with this new phone (i kept the sd card in), i installed a bunch of apps (but kept quality in mind while doing so :), & am waiting. today is monday, i got the phone saturday evening. so far, no annoying spontaneous restarts.

    maybe the cause of the problem is the SD card, maybe it's loading your crap up & the OS freaks out, maybe it's hardware. i don't know.

    either way, if you're having this problem, don't take a chance & realize that your phone restarted in the middle of the night & wonder if you lost important data, get texts from what appears to be a booty call but you don't really know because you don't recognize the number, etc.

    just take it in, get a new one, & pray that it doesn't happen again.
    go microsoft!

    Mine reboots a few times a day. Sometimes totally losing any and all that is installed on it. But then I reboot, and bam, all is well.

    Hopefully, Microsoft has got something in store in the NoDo update that could fix this... although I doubt it, really. We'll see.

    A few times a day? I would recommend taking that one back and getting a fresh Focus.

    I will if the update doesn't work. It's got a 1 year warranty on it. I am firmly in belief that it is because of the 32GB MicroSD card in there.

    Happens to me as well... my atrix does the same thing.

    I don't have an SD card installed. Also, all my settings stay in tact.

    I would assume the same as well. I had a 32GB MicroSD (Sandisk class 2) and for several weeks (since launch) it worked well... then the random reboots started.

    After a few weeks of 1-several reboots per day, the phone rebooted one day and didn't turn back on. I had to take the microSD card out before I could reset it. Then I purchased another 32GB MicroSD (Patriot Class 10). I used it and it worked well for about 2 weeks, then the random reboots started, and finally the same thing happened (phone wouldn't boot with the microSD). Only this time, after I took the MicroSD and reformatted the phone, the phone turned back on with only 17MB of memory.

    I got the phone replaced (and the 2nd MicroSD since I only had it for a couple weeks) but I haven't put the new microSD card in, I'm waiting until the update as well.

    I took the SD card out and did a factory restore on it. Sucks, cause it relocked my phone. I will give it till Saturday. If it keeps rebooting, I will take it in for a fresh device. I wanna get it done before the NoDo update, so I can unlock my phone and load ringtones.
