    There seem to be numerous reasons that is causing this issue. Apps that were originally coded for WP7.x are known to make the 920 unstable. Also, wireless charging is also another cause of the phone freezing. My 920 will freeze up if I attempt to charge it with the wireless charging plate so I don't bother using it anymore.

    I would like more information about your issue. When you say your phone is becoming "Brick" what do you me. Is it turning off or restarting? What are you doing when this happens?

    It sounds to me like you need to get your device replaced brow. I have never had any of the issues you are talking about here. If you cant use the wireless charger that's a sure sigh its time for a replacement. Also I have a bunch of WP7 apps installed on my device with zero issues.

    From a thread I was reading yesterday, it appears as though the battery status apps are causing issues with the wireless charging.

    @Dave Blake - Thanks for the input but I'm on my second 920 because the first on died. It was also very unstable and would freeze on a regular basis. My replacement has been very stable and has only locked up when using the wireless charging plate.

    @Alex Rodriguez Jr. - I do have a couple of battery status apps installed (Battery level for WP8 and Battery sense) so I'll try removing them and see if the phone survives after a wireless charge. Thanks.

    Sorry about I didn't tell about my problem clearly.
    "Brick" that mean the phone is shut down abnormally and can't open it normally, must use soft reset button ( Hold volume down button and Power button together for 10 second ).
    But I think is my SIM Card problem because when I take out my SIM Card the phone won't become "Brick" again. So that I have changed my SIM Card, unfortunetely the phone still have this kind of problem but the times of the phone become "Brick" have reduce become once times per day.( Before chaged the SIM Card, my phone become "Brick" 4 times in 3hours )
    So I'm so weird my phone is what happend

    Guys, just replied to a similar thread. I had the same issue and it got worse when I updated skype to the latest version.

    I've now uninstalled Skype, and not had it freeze (brick) on me for a week. Not saying this is your issue, but it certainly made mine more stable, and no freezes since (fingers crossed for the future)

    So that's mean is the Skype apps problem?
    Why Skype will cause my phone become "Bricked"?
    And I thought that was the phone SIM Card Case error?
