    Hi there,
    I got a little annoying problem with my nokia lumia 920. Occasionally it will not lock. I can press the lock button for eternity and it will never lock? I need to shut down the phone. After rebooting it will work fine. Any ideas?

    I had the same issue once. Then someone stole my 920.
    But yes it happened to me too, it didn't want to lock... After reboot it was ok.
    I've bought mine in France (TPH). The only app that i've installed is: Chronometre

    I'm facing this problem too. 2nd time I've encounter this.
    My Lumia 920 is a pre-portico version (aka. the original OS and firmware).
    The screen would not autolock too. Just turn dim and stay on.
