Issues with Zune music player pausing/stopping

So the main reason I got this was for the Zune music player.  Has anyone else had issues with the music player pausing automatically?  I was using it on a run and it worked fine for a while, then the songs would keep pausing automatically after about 10 seconds.  I gave up after unpausing it like 20 times and finished my run in silence.  Then today I was listening to the radio, everything was fine for 30 minutes or so, then it shut off.  I took it out of my pocket and brought up the radio tuner, and it wouldn't let me change the station, it would just exit out of the screen automatically.  Now, several hours later, it seems to be working fine.

 

Has anyone else had a similar issue?  Is there a firmware upgrade or something I can run?  Or do I just have a defective unit?

This is not a common problem, from what I've read. So if it were my device, I would get a warranty exchange. The Zune player is the best feature, so I wouldn't put up with the pauses you're describing.

This is a shot-in-the-dark guess. Speaking about phones in general, awhile ago some people were able to trace erratic phone behavior to the [strong] magnetic contained in the flap of the phone holster. After either flipping the phone around inside the holster or putting the phone into a holster with a velcro flap, the erratic behavior stopped. The theory was that the magnet was strong enough that it was confusing the normal function of sensor(s) inside the phone.

 

But I don't know if today's cellphone technology is immune to such a phenomenon.
