I upgraded my phone a couple of weeks ago and got the samsung galaxy ace which keeps turning itself off, I've done a factory reset and it continues to do this.
Having read a bit around the net it would appear that it might be a problem with the software and that the new Gingerbread update will fix it, do we know of any likely timescale for a software update from VM for it?

I've experienced the excat same issues since receiving my Galaxy Ace in early May.
I agree with most internet posts that the problem is linked into wifi settings.
After various research and trials and errors I came to the conclusion to turn off wifi whenever not in use and wait for (which I assumed was imminent) a software &/or firmware update. No such update seems forth coming so I've contacted the Virgimedia support desk.
The virginmedia help desk is as useful as a chocolate tea pot.No records of anyone else having Galaxy Ace issues. They took the details but didn't phone back. When I contacted them again they had no record of my previous enquiry & the nett result was to speak to the Technical Helpdesk which isn't open until Monday morning.
So back to having to remember to manually turn off the wifi settings after each use,

I sat on hold for the tech department for over 30 minutes last week, then the line went dead
Will try again this week.
I've already factory reset the phone to see if it was an app, it wasn't.
And it has also turned off at least once with wifi turned off.

Having been on hold today for nearly an hour I eventually got through to technical who are insisting on taking the phone in for repair because some git did not log my initial call and the second one was a day outside of the 14 day period.
After having had VM steal money from me at the initial contract setup and now deny me a phone for four days I'm tempted to get legal advice in regards to cancelling the contract due to their various breeches.
Not at all impressed.

And to top it off the paperwork that arrived with the returns envelope this morning had the following in the reported fault box:
"TO003 HANDSET CHARGING BUT NOT SWITCHING ON"
Not even close to the fault reported, is the entire Virgin mobile team just inept and incompetent or have I just been exceedingly lucky in getting all the idiots?
