Default My device is constantly rebooting on it's own

This isn't the first time this has happened, but it's by far the worst. I'll be doing any random thing, from playing a game to watching Youtube, and it will start rebooting on its own. (The Apple logo will popup etc.) It has become so bad that it will sometimes reboot while it's rebooting. I've tried everything that I can find online (aside from taking it to the Apple store, which aid really rather not do). Does anyone have any suggestions?

I recommend taking it to a Genius Bar location, they've got good analysis tools. Worse case scenario they'd trade you in for a reconditioned replacement for ~$100.

Consider turning it off for a period of time or re-installing latest iOS from iTunes (which are random guess suggestions).

When something like this happened to me, it was because I didn't have enough memory available. I removed the apps working in the background and freed up a lot of memory by removing songs, movies, games, etc.

Or, I had an app that was incompatible with another app and I had to delete apps from the most recent purchases backwards to find the culprit. Once identified, I'd write the dev about it. All of the above happened while on an older iOS and I haven't had issues since.

I had it happen once or twice on iOS 6 but doing what coke daddy did fixed it, I've not this issue on the current iOS but I do get iOS peri stalled crap crashing a lot. Gamecentre hasn't worked for me since updating to 7.1 leaderboards and achievements etc all say no items. I'm hoping it just fixes itself lol
