and the same happend to my 2 days old Limelight yellow today :-( I sold my 2nd Nokia Lumia 920 of so many issues and bought a HTC 8x last Saturday but it seems i stuck in the same bad situation. I assume it is a Windows Phone 8 software problem. WP8 is too buggy :-(

having the same issue with HTC 8x, got it 5 days ago and was really excited to play about with it and download loads of apps!! but now I'm really annoyed by this, phone randomly shuts off and i have to press the power button to boot it up again, first time i noticed it was at work after a fee hours in my pocket took it out and it was off. didn't think much at the time thinking i might have accidently switched it off in my pocket, but then it happened again and again and once while i had the camera open. today i started looking round the forums and see that it's an issue!! Windows Tech guys listen up and sort this out, your losing referral customers for this new operating system!!! very impressed with the phone otherwise, but if this continues will consider another phone and possibly another operating system

I have had multiple issues. If you have had random resets, trade it in ASAP. If it stops reading your SIM card, trade it in ASAP. Recently, it just shut off, without a low battery, and would not come back up. I tried all reset combos. It would not light up with charger. I powered it over night several times, but I always unplugged it each morning. I order a new one finally thru Verizon but wanted to try a last ditch effort. So I plugged in my phone to the charger before I went to bed and left it. The next day when I got back from work I noticed a green power light. It had powered itself on around 1PM based on my texts all coming in at that time. It you forgot to back up or don't want to lose your app data, and don't want to trade it in you should try keeping it plugged in and cross your fingers.

My 8x did this within hours of getting it and I have a replacement on the way, but I keep trying to get this one to boot. It's not like you can pull the battery to get a complete power off though. Any other words of advice to get the phone restated, or is simply bricked? Oh, mine started acting up while transfering files using the Windows 8 app from the Market Place. Nice Microsoft app to brick you phone with.

I had the same problem. phone just reset itself after been drained dead and did not boot at all
Hard/soft reset did not help at all.
What worked is plugging it into my laptop. Strange, very strange
For second I thought I had a very,very expensive brick
