    what can cause hard resets?

    I had three hard resets on my ppc6600 over the weekend for no apparent reason. I know it happens from time to time, and it's usually not a big thing because everything I care about is either on the storage card or in outlook at work. But three within 24 hours has me concerned about my beloved dork-u-lator.

    Has not been dropped (recently)
    Nothing out of the ordinary installed, no today plug ins
    Battery was at 24% when the first reset occurred, that was the first thing i checked when it came back up
    Battery does not appear to be loose

    How do I know whether I have a dying device or just a bunch of annoying coincidences? Anything I can check into?

    My xv6600 had a couple of hard resets over a couple of weeks. I've since had it replaced by VZW and haven't had one reset with the replacement unit (still using a Mugen battery).

    After getting the new unit, I noticed how much tighter the screen slide felt. One of the resets I had happened as I was opening the slide on my original phone, so I wonder if there was something coming loose between the two halves of the unit?

    thanks for the responses. I'm gonna sit tight, if I see another one, maybe I'll head into sprint's local gadget hospital.

    thanks again!
