i've had mine now for about a month and it just froze up. I freaked out. I knew it had like 49% battery about 2 minutes before, so I knew it wasn't the battery dying. I tried holding volume down, lock button and camera button for about 10 seconds and that got it back to life. I don't have WWF or Skype installed, but I do have Nokia Drive. It wasn't running at the time it froze, but it is installed.
Pretty scary experience.

Well I can tell you I've uninstalled all the apps I had at the beginning (except the pre-installed ones), and it didn't help.. I'm waiting for a system update (I'm running 9903), but if that doesn't help either I'll have to return it I guess..

OK: Happened to me. Less than 24Hours of signing up a new account with AT&T for the Lumia 920.
As previously stated that other users are claiming that it CANNOT happen with the Wired Charger from Nokia.
I received the lumia 920 last night, downloaded various different apps, including the following: AMAZON MOBILE, BREAK.COM VIDEOS, CINEMAGRAPH, CREATIVE STUDIO, FACEBOOK/FACEBOOK PRO, FLASHLIGHT, FOURSQUARE, FREE SPEED TEST, GOOGLE (SEARCH), GOOGLE MAIL, GOOGLE MAIL 2 (2ND ACCOUNT), GROUPME, GROUPON, NOKIA CITY LENS, NOKIA MAPS, GAME: CONTRE JOUR, ANGRY BIRDS, FRUIT NINJA, XBOX SMARTGLASS, NOKIA MUSIC, NOKIA TRAILERS, NOKIA XPRESS, PANORAMA, SKYPE, SMART SHOOT, WNM LIVE (I think might be the major culprit cause it looks like it's still designed for WP7 otherwise Maybe like other said Nokia Drive, but I have yet to actually use it besides just downloading the map of Minnesota).
It's Kind've good that it happened so soon, since I haven't downloaded 100s of apps yet. So If Someone can determine it to be one of those, or can point out issue they've had with those apps. Please do, so we can find a potential solution or a easy fix for nokia.
I Received the device yesterday night and I downloaded a majority of those apps that night. I charged it overnight with the wired charger (No Issues), and than I downloaded the rest throughout the rest of the morning and day (up till 6pm). I started trying out the web browser for a while after I watched some of the Nokia Trailer Content and playing the game Contre Jour, afterwards I put the device into the Wired charger, came back my lumia 920 2 hours later ... and BAM. Bricked?!.
I did the soft reset as mentioned here and POOF, fixed and it turned back on! Awesome. (However it's still pretty un-nerving having a phone less than 24hours and it freezes up like that = / . Not sure If its W8 to blame since I've only had it for only a full day, or just a badly programmed or outdated app. However I still love the WP OS and my red Lumia 920, especially in comparison to android or IOS, both which have their own strengths/weaknesses just like WP8, but using all 3, I feel like wp8 has unprecedented potential if Microsoft can make their xbox/desktop/WP8/RT/PRO ecosystem come to fruition while allowing for windows powered devices to be more streamlined and "Stable" similar to IOS's closed off system, W8 in my opinion is the middle ground between android and IOS. (Android being almost completely open, IOS being locked down, and W8 being somewhere in between). Xbox is really Microsoft's big gain over any of the competition as it sits right now. (No other OEM besides microsoft, sony, and the ghost nintendo) would be able pull off a full ecosystem that syncs together efficiently w/o the reliance on other big box developers/manufacturers. (android kickstarter, ios apple tv, etc.)

And it's still happening more or less once a day, even though I've uninstalled all the apps since I got it..

My phone was on the wireless charger all night, and now this morning it wont turn on. I tried plugging it in the wired charger to see if it was the charger, but it still wont turn on. I tried the reset ideas on here, and that hasn't worked either :'(

Ok happened to me right now and ran over to this great forum. The power/volume/camera did the job. I just finished downloading gmaps and I think my nokia music was already finishing refresh music offline before this happened

Phew! Thank goodness I found this thread.
This morning, when I opened up the Nokia Music app, my phone got stuck. I was able to slide through the different tabs in the app but clicking on anything did not work. The BACK, HOME, CAMERA, VOLUME buttons didn't work either. I left the phone as is and went for breakfast. When I returned 20 minutes back, the phone was off and wouldn't turn on. Kind of like bricked.
The volume+lock+camera trick finally worked and did a soft reset.
When back to Nokia Music and it worked just fine. Just a coincidence? I don't know!

Same happened to me and a soft-reset got it working again. Some confusion about soft and hard reset here, so this is a link that describes how to do the two.
How to Soft Reset the Nokia Lumia 920 | WMPoweruser
If this should happen to you (which anecdotally seems likely) to soft reset the Nokia Lumia 920 press and hold the power button and volume down button for about 10 seconds will do the trick; the phone should vibrate and reboot your phone.
If this fails a hard reset is the next step, but be warned that this is where the reports of bricking have come from. To hard reset hold the volume down, power button and camera button until the phone vibrates, then release the power button and keep the volume down and camera button down for another 5 seconds. Your phone should then reset to factory state.

Thanks to the help from this thread i have survived day 2 with my 920. Is it still not recommended to use here+ due to lock ups? I uninstalled it as my 920 shut off and wouldn't restart normally after i just loaded up a map.
