I need to confirm if it is just me doing something odd, but has anyone else noticed there 8x turning itself off occasionally? After the Portico update, the occasional random reboot has turned into an occasionally random shutdown.
It has only happened when I am not using the phone, and I have pulled the phone out of my pocket after a few hours, wondering why I hadn't received a text reply, only to realise that the phone is off.
This is clearly a software issue, like the reboot is/was, but less desireable IMO.

Haha, happened to me although mine never came back on. Fully charged, used an hour or so, sat it beside my pc and played about an hour of warcraft, piched up phone and DEAD, no comninations of buttons would revive. Went by t-mobile and they overnighted a new one. :( I had phone for 45 days before that so no clue whether bad phone or something from update /shrug.

Mine did this like 4 times today out of nowhere. I just put it on the charger because it is behaving as if the battery is dead. It turns on, then after a minute or so turns itself off. I'll see how this pans out after it's on there for an hour.Continue to use Zune for media sync in WP8 <-----Go here and VOTE!

This has started to become an issue for me. I can count on my phone deciding to shut off about 1-2 times per day on average right now. Always boots back up just fine, but really frustrating as it always seems to happen when I'm expecting a call/text.
My 8X is a Verizon, interesting to hear it's happening on T-Mobile versions too.

there is a common hardware issue with this phone that causes resetting and bad data connections. the cause is that the SIM card is not held firmly in the sim tray and will start to have a bad connection with the contacts. the solution is to remove the SIM card, place a piece of tape on the back side (side opposite of the gold contacts) and reinsert the SIM card. its only a coincidence that it started to happen after you updated, its been an issue since launch but the connection is only now having problems in your phone.
so tape the sim card

I had to do a hard reset of my phone after the portico update. It did a number on my phone. My music App was wrecked for months until I finally decided: screw it I'm fixing this. It worked out because I got the wifi calling app for my Tmobile HTC8x, so if you have TMO without the wifi calling app doing a reset will be worth it.
