Default auto rebooting problem

A while ago I had a problem with my phone keep rebooting itself continually - worked out that it was seemingly scanning the SD card twice and then shutting down and restarting. I initially put this down to a problem caused by AVG antivirus and I took out the SD card so I could boot the phone, removed AVG, put the card back and it was fine. I then installed Avast AV and that has worked well for weeks - now suddenly it starts to reboot iteself over and over again. I went through the same procedure and uninstalled Avast but this time the problem remains. I am beginning to suspect the SD card may have developed some fault but the problem is that I have transferred a lot of apps to it and presumably can only remove them with it installed but it wont run long enough for me to do this. Any ideas anyone - I am wondering if I should just give up on the SD card and do the update which is on KIES which as I understand it removes all the apps anyway.

You could remove the SD card and boot the phone, it will do no harm with some apps on the SD card.
This will at least confirm or deny whether the problem is the SD card or not, just go to manage applications to uninstall the link.
There is also the possibility that this is caused by an application or two applications clashing.

If booting the phone without the SD card stops the reboots then great but if the SD card isn't at fault then as painful as it may be I would suggest a Factory data reset.
This will wipe all user data in the device but could resolve the reboot problem, I make no promises though!!

Default Re: Re: auto rebooting problem want to input my experience with this problem.
Found out: a combination of sd card problem and"resident" app in the ram causes the reboot loop. I have terminated all resident ram apps by pressing the home button and starting the task manager and killing all running apps during the start up process.i.e. Also took out the sd card and copied all data to my PC.then formatted the sd and copied back all data. Then restarted and my loop was gone. Hope it helps

My phone was rebooting about once a day. The update to the new RAM, Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.3 fixed the problem. I recommend that everyone update to the latest RAM. It is faster and more stable.
