Turns off, resets itself, vibrates randomly!

Sal, just in case it still matters after 7 month :) I had the same problems with one of mine. I replaced the battery did a complete restore and it fixed those symptoms after that.

Had same problem. Went to local independant repair man. He reseated the main board: voila, problem solved!

jj and oldturkey's advice is pretty good. phone rebooting/resetting is usually signs of battery problem-either bad connection following a drop, or because it's old..

bit extreme and costly, I'd first try the simple things... reset/restore/battery etc before going and spending all my money on a new logicboard.
