Submission + - New Windows Phones Freezing and Randomly Rebooting (theregister.co.uk)

An anonymous reader writes: Early adopters of Windows Phone 8 hardware are complaining that the phones are rebooting at random, up to several times a day. The complaints relate specifically to the HTC 8X and Nokia's Lumia 920.

Forum users on Microsoft.com and WPCentral have been gathering examples in an attempt to narrow down the problem, but with limited success. Those discussion threads have already hundreds of comments, and are joined by those at Nokia where users report similar problems. Though it's certainly not hitting every Windows Phone 8 device it's annoying those it does hit.

Support staff from the three companies have reportedly been suggesting rebooting and booting the phone without a SIM card for ten minutes.
