Involuntary Reboot and Battery Drained - twice the pain
Has anyone else had this problem that I've been having over the past week? It seems to happen while I'm watching a video, or using the camera, but the phone just reboots itself and when the phone comes back up the battery has been drained.
I know we've all seen reports of the rebooting problem, but I've never known the phone to drain itself of battery life. The battery is almost always over 80% charged when using it because I have a charging dock at home and at work, so I know the battery is fine prior to the reboot.
It's frustrating as you know that when the battery is drained so low it turns off the radio functionality so you cannot get emails or receive phone calls until the battery is charged back up.
Anyone else seen this happen?

Yes, I also experience camera induced involuntary reboots (13-15 minute restarts) happening with my 'Storm 2'... it happens infrequently (3-4 times monthly)... Usually happens under the most inopportune circumstance... Murphy's Law stuff. Not having the battery issue though.

If you have a bad contact, it will appear that the battery is completely drained. You may be correct in that it may be a bad battery. If it were me, I'd try to shim the battery tightly against the contacts with a piece of business card.

I read all the posts. Thanks. My 9650 runs fine most the time. Sometimes, like 1 in a 100 nights, the phone will start the night at 100% charge. I turn off all wifi, cell transceiver power. I do no use the phone at all. Not even for music. Radio Silence. At sunrise in the morning the battery beep complains it's without charge and shutting down the phone. Close examination of the battery contacts show nothing tarnished or amiss. Very odd.
