    No, I can't say my phone has ever randomly restarted.

    I started paying close attention to mine and my Wife's Gold 5s after reading about this same problem in another thread and site a couple of days ago, I'm glad to say no random restarts here on either phones. I'm thinking that it could be an app of some sort. I purchased our iPhone's from Verizon if that makes any difference.

    I'm pretty sure its an app. I had the issue the first few days the 5S was released but I deleted a few apps & haven't had any issues since.

    Mine has also restarted because of an app crashing.

    Mine has started random reboots when I unlock it with the finger reader.

    Mine does it occasionally as well. Actually a few minutes ago when I tried using iTunes Radio 😓

    Mine does that probably once every two weeks or so. I'm pretty sure it's app related and not the device malfunctioning.

    Is everyone talking about a reboot just like when a Windows computer reboots after a "Restart" command is issued?

    I read somewhere that it could be a springboard crash meaning way too much crap open in the background. Or possibly from a big app. Mine has randomly restarted only when playing infinity blade 3 and having other apps open. Make sure to regularly close your apps. And if your going to play IB3 restart first.

    I'm curious, unless you actual see it restart, how would one know that the device restarted? Thanks in advance...

    Do you, by chance, use Facebook? It will definitely destabilize your phone.

    I think I understand why there may be a perception that a Springboard crash may be the same as a phone reboot. My 5S had a Springboard crash this morning. The crash is so sudden, and the screen immediately transitions from the UI to a blank white screen with an Apple logo in the center. This behavior can appear like a reboot.

    I can definitely confirm for me that it is Facebook that is doing the 'Hard Reset'. So make sure you close it down after using it. It's a hassle/pain but until Facebook updates properly then that is what must be done. <sigh>

    I'm not sure it's always apps. I had an iPhone 5s that I wiped and had it ready to sell. I didn't turn it off after the wipe. I put it on the table and walked away to do something else. When I came back and picked it up, it had shut itself down and I had to manually turn it back on again. There were obviously no apps running and it was obviously a complete shutdown and not a restart, but I don't think it's always apps. Could be something in iOS7 that is buggy.

    People are checking the error logs of the phone and becoming obsessive about it. That's what I'm seeing lately anyways from the posts we've been getting about it.

    I forgot to mention this is with no apps running in the background.

    Are you jail broken ?
    My phone did that when it was yesterday and the day before. But ever since it's back to normal and I got rid of the jailbreak I noticed, it's not randomly restarting.

    Is the restart happening Witt the apple symbol? Because apple knows about it and is working out a fix
