    Goodbye, MOTO.

    I bought my Atrix this morning from the AT&T store when it opened. After the initial rush went away, the fact that the phone rebooted randomly a few times really started to get annoying. That was around 1 PM. Over the hours between then and now, it rebooted three times. In the past five minutes, it rebooted twice.

    I haven't rooted it, I haven't done anything even remotely processor intensive; the last two times it rebooted I was (1) installing YouTube from the Market and (2) watching a preview/review video from CES.

    I can't say I'm very happy with my first Android experience.

    You just got a bad phone - exchange it and try again - it happens sometimes man.... i've bought electronics before that were dead out of the box - have faith and try again!!! this is an amazing phone!

    If you need help, and I appear to be offline, shoot me a msg on Gtalk, or PM me and I'll respond as soon as I possibly can!!

    Bad copy, Replace it ASAP!

    I'm sorry to hear about your misfortune, I hope you get a replacement soon. Haven't heard anyone else having this problem, shouldn't be hard to get a replacement (hopefully).

    I am on a drug. It's called Charlie Sheen. It's not available. If you try it once, you will die.

    This is the first atrix I've heard with any problems. Replace it and see how the next one does for you. Good luck

    Yeah, I'm absolutely going to give it another chance. Hopefully I'll be able to get a replacement on Thursday (two exams before then). I read a thread about other people having this problem (over on xda), so it's not isolated.

    There seems to be an average out-of-box failure rate of less than 2% for electronics. You just got lucky...the new one will be fine!
