Did a search first, couldn't find anyone with this issue.
New yesterday, my 32g 1520 reboots all by its big boy self. not often, but enough. At least 4 times in 18 hrs.
Went to Nokia, they said Sim cards. Support here is sending me a new one.
I've reset with no apps. Have no SD card. And didn't have the phone before the black update.
I've had several Nokia Windows Phones over the years and haven't seen this before. Anyone else experience this yet with the 1520?

Have you attempted to perform a master resest on the device? I have never seen any problems with the 1520 and usually one of the most problem-free devices. Sometimes if you SIM card is bad, it can cause all kinds of wierd problems and Windows Phones usually will force re-start if the SIM is having issues.
If you have a Company AT&T store around you, you can get a replacement for free from the store instead of waiting for them to ship one to you.

Thanks. Yes, I've done a hard reset and the issue still occurred. A second hard reset and this time did NOT allow the data to restore. I've had NO reboots for about 10 hrs now.
I've manually added back the data and such, or most of it, so we'll see. I'm not that worried about the reboots actually. Though in searcing the web for this, I noticed a couple of reports from Europe about reboots randomly.
I decided to try the resets first before running to the store for a sim card. we'll see what happens....

Update: Its now 24hrs since my last reboot and, NOT doing a restore of a backup. As of right now, I would say cleaning and reseating the SIM card, and installing clean data appears to have worked.

Update: 70 hrs into ownership. 6 reboots. I went 24hrs without a reboot, then started adding more apps. The reboots started again, but not as much.
I researched over on the Nokia site, and they have no real knowledge yet, though a Nokia moderate has said they are aware of the issue and are researching it. Fair I think.
On WP Central the dialog is similar with no real answers or suggestions. Most agree its a software issue. Most seem to think its triggered by:
There is very little on the Microsoft forums about this. And the Nokia forums seem to be mostly people in Europe or Asia posting with the issue.

After over 2 weeks of no reboots, my device started rebooting again. Reset and turned off Glance, but it still rebooted. Last time I went through this, Reset with NO restore and glance off, is what pushed me into the 2 week no reboot state. This leads me to think, there is a software combination that lends itself to rebooting.
Off to reset and try again....

I went digging for the info and found very many instances of this occurrence. Definitely some kind of software crash issue. I have tried the resets but each time the phone comes back with some lacking functions. I am seeking a new device. Love the phone but totally disappointed by the response from Nokia.

I had the same issue. Before I returned mine, I watched it reboot 72 times in a row before powering it down for the last time. Mine did it even on a fresh setup (no apps, no data restored, etc) with no SIM or MicroSD in the slots. Finally, the camera completely died. Luckily, mine happened within the 14 days buyers remorse period, so I was able to get a new one. My replacement has not had the same issue.

My 2nd refurb did the trick. No reboots, no flickering of the screen. with all the new Nokia app updates in, its a very fast phone.
Though I really question the a replacement with a refurb on day 27...I will live with a refurb that works very well. Problem is, AT&T has been very good to me. I really haven't had a problems. My bill right now is $70 less that it was 3 months ago. I have 2 new phones. I have more data than I can use. My coverage area here in a suburb of Seattle is very good. When I have called with a complaint, they've responded with an acceptable answer. Of course I haven't asked them any unanswerable questions either.
I have a single line with T-Mobile but really no desire to move my primary numbers over there. Every other carrier has the same issues, same problems, your mileage may vary.
So, I'm pretty happy with AT&T. And I am happy I got a 1520 that works like it does....finally
