I did, yeah - three different batteries and the crashing kept happening on all of them. It's definitely battery-related, but the rest of the phone is messing with the batteries.
Some more testing later: I'm still using that particular phone, even though I have to pull the battery and restart every time I want to use it (it lasts for roughly 2 mins of use then crashes again). It doesn't crash when it's on the touchstone, but does occasionally spontaneously restart.
The first battery that I kept using seems to have shrunk under the plastic. The second one goes through wild ups and downs of battery % - even while sitting on the touchstone, it will suddenly go from 100% to 0% charge within 10 minutes.
Very, very weird. I'm nervous about switching to my backup phone though, as I didn't finish setting up all the apps before the server shutdown and I still don't want to lose the HP device altogether! Gah.
