Kyderr, it's known that there is a problem with the bluetooth stack, as they completely rewrote it for WP8, and I think it was WPCentral's podcast where I first heard someone else who suspected a BT problem other than myself (almost all of my reboots/lockups have been while doing something with BT linked). Just FYI.

Yeah..... WWF isn't all it's cracked up to be, if you ask me. The only thing it has going for it is the people who were on it before it came to Windows Phone. I've got one game still going, and as soon as it's done, I'm uninstalling. Words By Post is the Scrabble game for me.

I have had the same issue of locking with my 2 week old 822. I got the phone at Radio Shack and they went through the phone reset and thought it would take care of things which it didn't. I called Nokia and was given the same volume down off button reset with no help. Radio Shack swapped out the phone tonight for a new 822. During the exchange the Radio Shack employee questioned if the memory card installed was Windows compatible. I told him the gentleman who sold me the phone installed it for me and I didnt know. He checked and sure enough, it wasn't, only Android certified. I never knew the memory cards are certified to work in different OS's. He had a "newer" 32G card that stated on the back of the package, Windows Compatible. The phone is noticiable quicker, loaded all my previous settings/apps in much less time and has a better overall feel. I know its only been a few hours, but this seems to have solved the issue. The Radio Shack employee that assisted me said he previously worked for ATT for 6 years and the memory card issue with Windows Phones has been there since the inception of the phones and will cause locking and freezing as the phone is having trouble reading and accessing the card when not compatible. I thought this was worth letting others know as this seems like a logical solution to a very frustrating problem. I guess you can pull your memory card from the phone, reset and see if the locking continues if someone would want to test it. Thanks and good luck!

Fast forward to Windows Phone 8, and this is no longer an issue. Windows Phone 8 doesn't require cards that are "certified" for Windows Phone.
When I first started reading your post, I was thinking that this was a salesman who took you for a ride. But when I got to where he worked for ATT, there's the possibility that he's just working on stale information (the Samsung Focus was an ATT phone, after all). There certainly is no longer a need for "Windows Phone Certified" cards. Also note that "Windows Compatible" does not mean "Windows Phone Compatible".

Oh, there's no doubt at all that there's a problem with bluetooth. It's been mentioned on the WPCentral Podcast at least once that I can think of, and of all the times that my phone has locked or rebooted, only once was it not connected to BT.

Just wanna chime in here as I am also experiencing this issue. While I do have BT enabled, I am not always linked w/ a BT device when the reboots happen. I haven't yet seen a freeze/lockup yet, and am not keen on doing the hardware reset and losing all my stuff. I was initially thinking this could be related to the hardware itself when coupled w/ the wireless charging back - some sort of "short" happening that triggers a reboot - but now that I see others are having the problem w/o the charging back, I think that I'll hold out for Portico and hope that things sort themselves out.
I've also seen the issue since getting the Nokia updates over the past couple of weeks, unfortunately.
btw I'm vastly preferring AlphaJax as my Scrabble game now - Xbox Live achievements :)

I tried going to the Nokia Discussion boards, but I cannot even get the pages to render properly. Anyone heard if Nokia / Verizon is aware of the issue? I've been arguing with big red all week, and I highly doubt they would help me aside from simply telling me to reboot the phone or send another. Neither of which will solve the problem.

Thought I'd offer some additional insight. I hadn't had the freezing issue until recently, and both times I saw it I had started syncing download of a podcast. Almost immediately afterward, when I locked and then unlocked my phone, it froze to the point of needing a battery pull.

Mine has never locked up with Bluetooth on. I can't really say what circumstance causes it to lock up though because mine doesn't do it very often. I certainly agree that an update is needed. It is disappointing that these new phones are having these problems.

I've seen one reboot and it has shut down twice since I received it on January 2nd.
I'm coming from a VZW Android HTC Thundebolt so there is nothing this phone will do to **** me off as some of you here are.
This is the best smartphone I have had in 10 years or so for ease of use, ease of setting up and battery life which is ridiculously longer by a day than any cell I have owned. Now, I'm not a gamer or streamer like some of you but that held true with all prior phones for battery life.

don't know if relevant, but: Re-activating an 822, did a "reset my phone" from the settings, and it bricked. Did the full hard reset (down + charger, up, down, power, down) from here: Nokia Lumia 822 Troubleshooting - Nokia - USA and it seemed to fix it. Now I've got to re-setup the phone. whee.

I have had my 822 replaced once because it locked up twice and rebooted once in the first 2/3 days. The replacement has been great but it has rebooted twice in a month, both times when it was connecting to my cars Bluetooth. Just thought this was interesting and may show bluetooth has something to do with reboots. Just a thought. Anyways love the phone, wp8, and this community.

"Myself, I've had a couple problems as I've noted before in this thread, but I'm not concerned. Nokia has been responsive in the past, and I expect that if it is their problem they'll be out with a patch to fix it, likewise Microsoft. This is the first wave of the phones, and I don't get surprised when something happens, as testing by the company is never going to be as extensive as putting tens or hundreds of thousands in people's hands, so you're always going to discover problems on launch. Look at Apple with iOS 6 maps, iPhone 5 with the purple haze in the pictures with lights, and the antennagate."
The purple haze happens with all cameras like on the iPhone 5, also antennagate has happened on multiple android phones before. And Apple Maps, I think that they are fine personally

This morning I went to unlock my 822 and it froze on password entry. I let it sit there for a bit, then pulled the battery.
Now it won't even boot. Not even the Power Down + Connect Charger gets me to OS restore menu. This thing just literally bricked ITSELF.

After two 822's freezing up and losing cell signal and data signal randomly, Verizon is sending me an 8X. I hope the 8X is more dependable for me. The 822 is a solid phone, but I need it to work like it is supposed to.

Well mine just had it's first lock up and Bluetooth was not involved. It's about once a day or so. This time, I had left the phone quietly by itself. I came back to it and nothing. Had to reboot it. I was contacted by a member on the forms who claims to work for Nokia and she asked me to tweet to Nokia to get a response. Three tweets later and 72 hours, and no response at all.. I love this phone, but this is starting to get annoying. I have also found it does NOT work at all with bluetooth music streaming with Ford MySync MyTouch.. Works ok with the non mytouch version.
