9650 Randomly powering off
I have a 9650w/ OS 6 with Sprint. Lately it has been turning off. Does not matter if I am in bad cell coverage or excellent coverage. It has turned itself off while I am typing SMS/BBM and email. Any thoughts or ideas? Thanks

Are you sure you haven't set anything to automatically reboot your phone?
Mine used to shut itself off when the memory got too low also.

Mine will shut off in my pocket even though I have it on standby. Apparently the standby doesnt disable the power key, so it can still be accidentally turned off. This is annoying and troublesome and should be fixed IMO.Another Ramblin' Rehab Reject! http://bit.ly/dXrNpz

Woah you guys..
I thought it was just a problem with OS6.
Its always been happening since OS6.

I'm not sure it is OS6. I think it is related to the radio file and has been seen in other OSs such as 4.5 and 5.0 as well, just not as much.

I just picked up my ex-wifes old 9650 (I'm an iPhone user now but I wanted this phone as a backup in case I damage or lose my iPhone because I like physical keyboards and I liked using my older 8830 blackberry when I had it...) and it too is randomly shutting off.
One thing I've noticed so far is that it hasn't rebooted while I was using it in the charging dock and then after I was done using it like this, I placed it in the dock and it's still on (hasn't rebooted). It's been fine for over an hour so far. Makes me think it's something to do with the battery being loose. I tried wadding a piece of paper behind the battery to make it tighter but it didn't work.
