    Backflip occasionally reboots

    I just got my backflip a week or so ago and I've been having some trouble with it rebooting itself. It doesn't happen too often but it's just annoying when it does.
    It usually occurs when I am running an App and I flip open the keyboard, it just automatically reboots itself.
    Anyone know of a fix for this?

    It could be an issue with the app. Does it normally occur when using the same app?

    This is basically the same thing that has been posted oodles of times.

    It's not the application itself, it's the battery being just a hair smaller than the area it's supposed to fit inside. Easy solution is slipping a very small piece of paper in the battery area to keep it situated.

    Are you kidding? They made the battery too small?

    This doesn't affect all phones. I haven't had any trouble with mine at all.

    In all honesty, it probably isn't the battery at all. It probably would have more to do with Motorola's factories making the battery housing a little too large for the battery.

    Like he said though, this doesn't affect all Backflips, but mine had this same issue. I put a little piece of paper in the gap and it hasn't done it since.

    I've had 3 separate handsets and all of them have done this same thing. It's most definitely a manufacturing issue.

    if it is as intermittent as you say it is, I dont think it would be the battery being to small. Try rebooting your phone once in a while (I reboot mine daily when i wake up) so that you can be sure it isnt just because of (possible) memory leaks causing a system crash. My phone will still reboot itself on occasion but only about 1x a month now. And i can deal with that fine.

    Yep. Just put the paper in there. Worked on my RAZR, RAZR2, RIZR, and now my backflip, which all had problems with rebooting while being flipped/slid.

    Good job on the manufacturing, motorola.

    So, I'm still on my 3rd handset and recently had them replace the SIM card. Guess what, it still rebooted. So, I trimmed a business card up to fit in there nicely and guess what?
    No reboots in about a month.

    Ridiculous that Motorola can't get a battery made to fit consistently.
