After long research and trial and error I found out that disactivating the Pedometer (Applications > Pedometer) stoped the crashes. Re-enabling the pedometer would recreate the crashing problem reproducably.
I have fixed this problem permanently by resetting (deleting) the Pedometer data. I guess beyond a certain number of steps the memory is full and overflows into the system as soon as a "step" is detected, causing a system reboot.

Excellent phone for hard, outdoors usage. I never worry with taking it to the beach or water sports or while biking. You can hang it by your belt and use it as a pedometer. The compass also works fine. My biggest surprise was how loud this phone can ring, which is way more than any other phone I've ever used, including old SIEMENTS rugged phones. Some people may not like the small screen and the 2.0MP camera, but you don't get such a phone for the looks or the typical features of a mobile phone, you get it so you can use it outdoors. The only cons I can find are the extra weight (though not too heavy) and some functions in the menu, which are not as good as in other samsung phones.
Alex, 01 Jun 2009***DO NOT BUY THIS PHONE*** - Within 1 month of purchase it was at Samsung Repair shop. Loss o... moreU had bad luck thats all.
All phones can have problems, including Nokia , yes nokia its not perfect.
I got for 3 months now.. i tested myself on all situations, and... still going.
-good looks and feel
-zippy through menus
-crap battery life
-asks "ok?" after everything you do, drives me crazy
-bad messaging experience
Overall, I think samsung is far behind nokia in usability. I owned a 6300 before, and everything can be modified to suit you, and its so easy to use.
The samsung on the other hand can be so frustrating to use, it struggles to achieve good results in some of the easy tasks it shoud fly through! Don't make the same mistake and buy this phone, wait till nokia bring out their new rugged phone
Its a Pure waste of money. Using this model i have decide never to use samsung in my life. also samsung service centres shiould be renamed samsung torture centres.
***DO NOT BUY THIS PHONE*** - Within 1 month of purchase it was at Samsung Repair shop. Loss of incoming signal/Break Out signal - sounds like a burst in your ear/Silly Menu and fiddly not user friendly in general/Lacks proper design thought/For example to plug in your headset you need to latch open that fiddly plastic bit on the side - Once the headset in - the fidddle bit is like in an odd position can get caught into something and makes the phone look as "cheap design" - Battery life Talk Time on GSM *NO WHERE NEAR as STIPULATED* I don't know about in 3G Mode - Buttons not well placed hanging up
phone makes you accidentally push the browser launch button - Why!?! -
This phone is anything but a failure from design inception to actual production. You'd think with all the technologies available you'd get a decent reception - Don't count on it buddy!
Anyways - This was my first SAMSUNG product ever, if they can't get a mobile phone right then I am sure they can't get right many other things.
Some customer chick called me after the repair to find out if I was satisfied with the customer service. Yes very satisfied, they told me they would get back to me in 2 days and they did, they also told me my phone would be ready next day, it was ! - When she said from a scale 1 to 10 would you recommend Samsung to your friends - I said 0 (zero).
it' s greate..i mas into the sea for 2 hours and the phone war ringing inside the watter...exellent...buy or bust....from the wonderful greece samsung for ever.............
this phone have a lot of problems, lossing service signal, frezing, drop out calls due to lost of signal, and more

"Bear in mind also that it's a beta version, so image quality could still improve." - it is from the review, you can check it.
That's why I'm asking someone who owns this phone, what is hes opinion about the pictures and what effect they have on the battery live
