Any further luck? If you able to do a factory restore and still get this problem, swap out the SIM card and/or any MicroSD card. If you can fix it that way, great. Otherwise, like I said, very likely to be a hardware fault.

I have to say, 85-90% of the time when I see something like this, it's related to apps. My suggestion is to take a look at all the apps you have installed. Uninstall any apps that you don't use (at least that you can, there may be some from your service provider that are locked down). Examine the ones that are left, and see which run processes continuously - in other words, if you use a game app, those typically shut down when you close the game, but if you run a custom SMS app, it has to run all the time to process incoming SMS messages. I would bet that it's one of those, and if you can isolate it, you can remove the one app causing the problem, and maybe even find an app to replace the function but that doesn't lock up your phone.


(p.s. Here's how to uninstall apps:

Just a thought, but have you tried disabling screen lock?

Go to System Settings and then to Security & Screen Lock.
(on older versions of Android you may just be called Security and then you have to select the option for Screen Security).
It will be set to your current security setting...
Select the option of None, and return to your home screen.

Let the screen time out (go black) and see if the freezes are better.

I have extended the time of screen timeout to max (10 min), When display is on the phone is working fine but as soon it goes black system get freeze!

Plz advise

If you are still having the same issue after a factory restore, I suspect a hardware fault. Is it still under warranty?
