    I was just curious if any of you had had this happen to your phone yet; first time for me was yesterday, I was browsing the marketplace when I clicked the back button and my Focus just locked up on me.
    A similar experience happened when trying to slide the screen down to unlock the phone, it froze on me a little too.
    I was kind of expecting this to happen, maybe not this early, but have had no other problems since then.

    I've had marketplace and Zune die on me. it will just say Loading.... for a while and flip back to the start screen. Only a power cycle fixes that.Also, when my phone is sleeping by connected to a bluetooth audio gateway Ihear this clicking sound from the phone. If I disconnect bluetooth it goes away.

    Wow, after you mentioned that after opening marketplace and it got stuck on "Loading...", mine also just flipped back to the start screen as well.....weird.
    Looks like some more bugs to be worked out.

    I've had freezes and then soft-reboots. I haven't had any that required a battery pull.

    I've noticed the flip back to the main screen on several apps. It seems to be random and goes away on its own or after a soft reboot. Only once has it been permanent with the AP application and I had to reinstall the app.

    Mine does that fairly often when in Marketplace. I have to end up rebooting the phone.

    Had another one tonight. Here's the problem with the microSD cards. I'm thinking that mine is working, but then I blame any issue on the microSD. Are the reboots caused my card or by WP7? Honestly, I don't know.

    I have not added an SD card, and I have to manually reboot every couple of days or so.

    Fortunately for me, my previous phone was Windows Mobile, so I consider this normal.

    I think all smartphones need rebooted periodically. My Palm Pre was the same way, as was my windows mobile before that. The biggest thing I've noticed is that apps start refusing to run and return to the main menu. My guess is that memory is maxed out and that some of the apps are leaking memory. Just a guess though. I'm sure memory management will improve in future builds. I had this happen before and after adding the SD card.
