    phone turns on/off by itself

    Hello all,

    Has anyone experienced it where their phone would turn off and on by itself? For the past week or so, it's been happening about once a day. Most of the time, my phone's in my pocket when it happens, but it has happened when i left the phone on the table, doing absolutely nothing.

    I feel the phone vibrate, and think i get a text message, but when i go check the phone, it shows the HTC Incredible splash screen, then continues to boot the phone.

    Any ideas or suggestions?

    No that is not acceptable. Ive had cell phones in the past do this. It is a defect and a very inconvenient one too!

    Return your phone..

    Is your power button getting stuck?

    I highly doubt the power button is getting stuck. if i hold down the power button when the phone is locked, it doesn't power off. i'll stop by the vzw store tomorrow, i was hoping it was some bug that could've been fixed =[.

    On another note, I like seeing All Programs in List view, but every so often, it changes back to grid view. That's not a deal breaker, but it is kind of annoying.

    Do not confuse this with the known 'reboot' issue; the phone reboots seemingly randomly but tied to lack of signal

    Really? First I have heard of this. How many have reported this? I have never had this happen and tend to be in "low to no signal" areas all the time.

    This happened to me but it was related to an app I had installed. I don't remember which one, it was a few weeks ago. I was able to figure out which one and when I deleted it, the problem stopped.

    So you're saying that this is a different issue? Can you link the issue you're speaking of, just curious.

    @pozer69
    I will try to uninstall some of the applications I've downloaded recently and see if that does the trick. I thought about that and started removing applications I downloaded and didn't use, but it's possible I may have missed it. I'm sure you don't know what the exact app was that caused it, but what have you removed recently?
