New SD card for over a week and all is well.  Looks like it was a card issue.

I was looking for some information on my Note II (VZW) so I powered off my phone and removed the battery to see the labels under it.  I replaced the battery and powered the phone back on.  About 30 seconds after the phone completely came back up, it rebooted.  This went on continuously for about 20 minutes, so I pulled the battery again, removed the SIM and powered back on.  Same result.  Removed battery, reinserted SIM, removed the SD card, no more rebooting.  Reinserted the SIM with the phone powered on, and in about 30 seconds, reboot.  Once the phone came back up I quickly went into the settings and formatted the SD card, problem solved.

 

It was just strange that I've had that same SD card in the phone (Kingston 64gig SDXC10 card) since I got it and I've not modified the contents of the SD card lately.

 

Anyone else come across this?

Interesting.  How old is it?  Is there a finite amount of r/w's?  Been a while since I used one...

I got the phone back in June and got the SD card a few days later.  The only things on it were a few movies and all camera pics, which get uploaded to Google anyway.

I'm now leaning toward an issue with the SD card or the card slot on the phone.  Here's why.

 

I got the phone to stay powered on, but now the alarm icon in the notification area was gone, and the alarm was set.  The alarm still went off, there was just no alarm notification in the notification area.

So I have removed the SD card from the phone and rebooted.  So far the alarm icon has not disappeared.

 

Probably my own fault.  All I've read is "only use ScanDisk SD cards" and I got a Kingston.  We'll keep an eye on it and watch what happens.

Very interesting.  Do you have a spare SDcard?  I'd try that?

Oh yes, quite a few.  Going to monitor for a while with no SD card installed just to see what happens.  By about 9pm tonight if the icon is still there I'll know I'm on the right track.  Fearing my alarm not going off in the morning, i'll install a spare SD card tomorrow and monitor again.  If the icon remains I'll know it's the SD card, which I'm really hoping is the issue because if it's the SD slot I'm hosed as Big Red won't send me a new replacement.....I'll get a refurbed one.

That's always a big fear of mine. Hence every device in my room has an alarm set lol

It's definitely SD related.  Alarm icon never went away all night.  Inserting a different SD card (whopping 1 gb) now.

So far it's looking like an SD card issue.  I found this one on Amazon:

http://www.amazon.co...=I1KLSXGNITZ1MN

 

It was recommended by a few people and specifically says "Ideal for Android, other smartphones and tablets".

 

Thoughts?

Oh wow. At least the issue is narrowed down.

I've never used anything other than Sandisk or Samsung SD Cards, and have never had any issues.  YMMV of course.

When I used my Razr, I had that exact SD card in the 32GB version. It worked perfect and is now collecting dust as I can't use it in the HTC One.
