nitinkrjain,

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.

Cheers,
LHerrou

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.

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

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.

Highfive Gives IT Their Time Back

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!
