    If your Lumia 925 freezes and no button works anymore…even the power button.
    There is annother way ( I never read about on the internet).

    You can disconnect the battery connector ( theres one wire from the black battery) for a second, thats enough (just lift it up with a little screwdriver, and pull down and connect again) you will loose no data or apps. Nothing!
    it will automatically start up again.

    OMG! Thank you so much. All I had to do was pop the back off and disconnect the wire to the battery. It was so easy!! My phone started back up as soon as I reconnected and put the back on! And it saved all my contacts! Genius!

    There’s a better way – if it freezes and no button works, press and hold the power button and then also press and hold the volume down button for 5-10 seconds until it does the little vibrate…guy at the T-Mobile store showed me that one!

    Awesome advoce for the gfs phone. Just so its clear for others. Pop off the back. Look for a black wire from the bqttery. Pop it up with your fingers where it ends on the top half of the phone. Its a plug-in connector. The phone will turn off. Reconnect and put cover back on. Turn on phone normally. You shoukd be all set.
