Anyone have an HTC smartphone?

Postby sox 06 » Sun Dec 09, 2012 1:04 pm

Does anyone have an HTC smartphone? I just got one (Aria, I know its an older model) about a month ago and I have one major problem with it. It reboots itself several times a day (usually about 4-6 times). Other than that it runs great and I love it. I bought it new and am using it with the Net10 Bring your own phone program. I've done some Google-ing on it and apparently they all have this problem, yet no one really knows what's causing it or how to stop it. One of my friends has an HTC Rezound and he says it reboots randomly as well. Just wondering if anyone has a randomly rebooting HTC phone.

My previous phone was an HTC Incredible. If memory serves, it would randomly reboot every now and then. It didn't occur too often to be really bothersome.

I had a thunderbolt for about a year. I think it did reboot once in awhile but not all that often. Battery life was terrible though, I wasn't overly impressed with the phone as a whole.

That's what a lot of people with Aria's say causes the reboot. However, mine will reboot at two in the morning after its been sitting on my dresser, UNUSED, for three to four hours so it can't be overheating.

Its really frustrating because I like the phone a lot.

I don't know anything about this particular phone, but here is a good place to look for information:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/forumdisplay.php?f=680

The xda forums have lots of information about modifications, tricks, tips, etc. Lots of good stuff on there for pretty much every model of Android device that's been released.

My experience is limited but I had an older HTC phone (Hero) and it would get very hot when not in use. It didn't seem to matter whether I used it a lot or not. It seemed to happen at random times.
