    Mod, since you felt he need to purge the post where I said I did not want to help OP as he could not be bothered to help him self I felt the need to do a little housekeeping myself and removed my initial attempt to help OP at the start of this thread.

    Frankly the moment OP posted he could not be bothered to even try to fix his issue, this thread should have been closed.

    I probably will pal. I don't have time in my busy life to **** around with my phone to fix it. I expect it to work when I need it. I depend on it. I most likely will move to another os. One that is more stable and reliable. I posted this to share my experience with everyone about how it hasn't been my first time with the same issue. Is it bad luck? Could be. But for a premium device, it was not money well spent for me.

    I'm the only one with a BlackBerry at my work place. During lunch I listen to all the other guys use and talk about their iPhones and Samsungs. They all have hours of **** around with them to get them to work right. The iPhone guys have to jail break their phones and then mess around with installing and moving around all kinds of files. The Android guys have to Route their phones, remove all the bloatware then mess around to no end with files and app to get them to work right. And here I am with my BlackBerry, I don't have any bloatware, spyware, I can access all my files, even use my use my phone as a harddrive and access files on it.

    Some apps (ported and/ or android) and device backups very often cause roboots & battery drain. From what I've seen since the launch of BB10, most reboot issues are software related (except the loose battery contacts in Z10).

    Thought most folks would know this, but seems otherwise.

    BTW, where's OP?

    I once read about a guy on his third Z10 due to earpiece crackling. He worked in a workshop where they cut metal. Metal filings where getting in and destroying the speaker.

    Let's not forget that the battery contacts can get worn on the q10 as well. I had to use a piece of paper to hold the battery in place on my q10 lol

    Not saying you are lying, but what your coworkers are doing is the opposite of good ideas. If they are not power users, they should not be rooting or jailbreaking. There is no reason to jail break an iphone any more unless you are a true power user. THere was really no reason in the past to jail break either unless you were a serious power user. Same with rooting. The "bloatware" on my android was solved the day I got it. I simply hid those apps and never used them. Rooting allows for power users to fully customize their phones and make them very specific but not something to be done by a internet explorer who saw a video once that looked easy and decided to give it a try. Would love to know why your coworkers thought they needed to do the things they did and what experience they had to attempt such things. Sure, watching a few youtube videos makes it seem straight forward, but it also opens the phone up to some serious problems if the wrong person starts tinkering because they saw something on the internet work once.

    WP is the same. Its fluid and easy to use, just like BB10. So the same thing is said on WPcentral. Androids and iphones have to be cracked to make them work supposedly. Show me a cracked device that is more capable than a OEM device at doing what your coworkers are trying to do with their devices besides put different icons on the home screens and load some random app that they believe will turn their phone into a super device.

    I've had to restart my Passport a couple of times due to a hung Android app, but it's never done it on its own. Gotta say, OP, if you're not willing to try reloading the OS, you're not really trying to fix the problem. The purpose of these forums is to find solutions, so I'd advise trying it. If you buy a brand new car, but something goes wrong (blown strut, faulty O2 sensor, you name it), you take it to the dealership to get it fixed, right? Nothing's perfect

    OP jinxed me.

    4x Z10s between me and my in-laws, and a Passport with no reboot issues, and my PP rebooted on my for the first time yesterday when unlocking it lol. I am on the "leaked" 10.3.1 OS and the same day installed a few android apps, one being a file hider, plus a headless BB10 app so I am sure one of them caused it. Probably was caused by an issue between the file hiding program conflicting with a media scan or something from my minimized Media Player, or maybe the headless Pebble caller ID program that was running in the background that was installed that morning as well.

    Instead of flipping out and making a thread about it though, I will uninstall the new apps and install one of them at a time with a day or two inbetwwn to see if I can narrow it down. My uptime was over 2 weeks too(since I installed the ATT OS leak) .

    Keep in mind a lot of us are using unofficial leaked operating systems with sideloaded and non-native unsupported apps - quirks are to be expected.

    Well, if you're going to be running potentially buggy Android apps with no native equivalents, then a proper Android device would be a good way to go

    This is serious sh!t, especially since all BB10 devices to date seem to be affected in one way or another and there is still, even after close to two years, no hint at what causes it. I still have occassional reboot issues on my Z10 today. Or my brothers Z10 shortly after he got it: after one OS update he was fine, no reboot issues whatsoever, maybe one in three days. Then he went on vacation in Italy. Boom, multiple reboots a day, one day it was even every 20-30 minutes when he would pull the phone out his pocket only seein the PIN request. It persisted throughout the entire vacation. And now: as soon as he crossed the border outwards of Italy again, the issue was gone in an instant. Also, I never had reboot issues while I was in flight mode....ever. It definitely has to do with the radio. But I don't what they've made wrong with the OS that it's still such an issue after all this time, when no other platform ever had a comparable issue? I'd hope they get a clue about it one day lol.

    All my Q10 did was reboot. Think they'd fix that problem right? Nope. My passport is worse. My passport has frozen and rebooted itself 6 times already today. Yes, 6. And all when I needed it most. I'm getting sick and tired of this bs. I've been a blackberry user forever and i love this phone, when it works. BB10 is still very buggy in my opinion and it's just not up to snuff in a lot of areas. Come on blackberry. BB10 has been on the market for what seems like forever now

    What you people do with your devices? I have used Q10 for a year and now using passport, Zero complaint

    Sounds more like this issue is an app if it affects all your devices.

    Certainly don't have any issues on any of my 10 series and haven't had anyone I know complain either.

    I occasionally suffer from restarts at random times, it's very frustrating and I sympathise with the OP. I also have less than a day of battery, but I do hammer this thing for every thing it can give me and any other device would buckle and need recharging by early afternoon, so I'm not overly unhappy with that still.

    This guy is really jerking us all around. He hasn't quite explain to us his problem and exaggerated a few things like the 6 hours to reboot a phone.

    Don't you mean OP is getting on our last nerve?? Lol. But I agree, for someone to come post a thread then never come back to tell us if his issue has been resolved is a surefire sign of a troll.

    Don't think getting another phone will do any good.

    Brand new note 4 here and it's not the top tier everyone is saying it is. Has frozen many times in the last week, stutters and lags a lot, not a little ALOT. The GPS is horribly wrong and the build quality is hell. Spots on the camera lens and mic that sounds hollow on speaker. It's actually getting returned tmrrw for a MotoX which hopefully works better.

    Can't wait till bb builds another full touch so I can get back on bb10.

    Is there something specific you are doing with you're phone hen it freezes and reboots? Maybe app specific...

    I think you have to explain better so you can determain if it's software or hardware related.

    Just a thought.

    I once read about a guy on his third Z10 due to earpiece crackling. He worked in a workshop where they cut metal. Metal filings where getting in and destroying the speaker.

    Posted via CB10
    I saw that with one client, even before BB10. He was having the problem the BlackBerry 9800 and 9810. Sometimes he could use a magnet and suck some of the metal particles out of the speaker and that would help for awhile.
