    Random Shutdowns in Sleep Mode - Atrix 4G

    Hi everyone. New guy here. Long term iPhone user converted to Android. I had bought an Infuse 4G but had some odd problems with it locking up and having to remove battery plus it seemed slow. So I took it back to Best Buy and got the Atrix after reading great review after great review.

    The phone came already loaded with Gingerbread. LOVE IT. I mean LOVE IT. Simple and not bloated like the Samsung.

    The only issue is this darn thing keeps shutting down. I mean it isn't a tablet. It is a phone. I need it to be running like my iPhone did. Just because I haven't touched it in a few hours doesn't mean I don't want that call that might come in.

    I have read thread upon thread about the Captivate nightmare around this but not much about people having this issue with the Atrix. I wound up clearing the whole thing back to factory tonight and didn't even sync my Google accounts just to see. I had only one app installed that didn't come with the phone (Logos Bible Software). Still seems to be happening.

    I really love the phone but it is useless with this problem. Since I've exchanged the Infuse for the Atrix BB won't let me exchange it again I don't think. Has anyone had this or know of a decent solution? I'm using the SIM card from my iPhone because the rep said that is what I should do. Phone makes calls fine and such when it stays awake.

    I have also had two random reboots. One was while watching the Motorola initial "help" video and the other just browsing the phone.

    Very frustrated and any help would be GREATLY appreciated,

    Vince

    Can you not bring it in for a replacement (not a different phone just a new one). j see a lot of hardware problems that spiral downhill.

    You also technically should be getting a new "4G" card that no one really knows if it makes a difference but it never hurts to get a new fresh one.

    I have much experience with unlocked bootloaders and custom ROMs on the original ATRIX. I will do my best to hold your hand through any problem, small or large, on any phone. Please open up a thread in the help section (or Rescue Squad section if your phone is in dire need) or PM me. I don't bite

    I'll second the above. If you're having those issues this soon, a replacement is warranted. SIM card as well.

    So I did exchange it. The one I got was an older one I think. It was new and unopened but it was running 2.2 whereas the first one was already upgraded to 2.3.4. So it ran for like four hours just fine (yeah) ... then while running Maps it rebooted for no apparent reason. So far no shutdowns. I just did the Gingerbread upgrade so we'll see how it goes. Thanks for the help guys. Fingers crossed. ~ Vince
