    I have already entered my phone's details so will just give an update on my experience. My phone has just been to Nokia care twice. It has just returned from a 'High level' repair service centre. They said they had repaired a corrupt memory but advised that I format my sd card before putting it back in the phone as this may be the problem. This seemed like a load of nonsense to me and that they were clutching at straws. It's always your fault in these cases..like when the internet goes off and it takes ages to convince the ISP it is not your modem that is at fault! Anyway I decided not to put my sim back in or my SD card and leave it as it was for a while. It had been wiped and so was in a factory state with no added software. The battery was about 80%. Went to look at it after a couple of hours and it was off and would not restart. I put in the charger then to see if it was the battery after all but no joy. I know I can volume down and power start it but am leaving it as it is for the Nokia people to see. So there you are ..no sim card, no sd card and no apps that didn't come with the phone and it still turns itself off! I think we could blame all sorts of things but it is basically the phone and I want a replacement. My wife bought the same model (820) at the same time and has so far had no problems at all.

    BTW are these posts going to be sent to Nokia?

    This is just fuc*ed up! Had random freezes 3 times already today. All whilst using WhatsApp (piece of sh*t app!). I have such freezes usually during whatsapp or while recording the video (i go mad!) .All this happening after Portico update. My phone was just absolutely gorgeous and trouble free before it.

    Phone switches off on its own and will not start when we use power button . I need to do a soft reset every time . It is very annoying.

    My first Nokia 920 froze repeatedly. I took it to AT&T in its frozen state. They had a replacement phone shipped out to me. I have had that phone about two weeks. During the last few days, it has frozen repeatedly - three times today. In fact, it is frozen right now. I was told to power down the phone once a day as this supposedly helps, but I have done this and still the phone freezes. Today, it froze after a phone call, then after listening to a voicemail. and currently it is frozen in the middle of sending a text message. My fiance' got the same phone at the same time and has had no problems.
