Freezes often. Especially when adding new contacts

Mine has been having trouble with the lock button for a few months. Then for the past 2 weeks its been going to a blue screen and shutting off and then turning back on. Then, last night, it was working fine at 2am but at 7am it was off and won't turn back on. It was on the charger.

My lock button started only working when it wants to but no it doesn't work at all. Not a big deal for me but inconvenient for sure. But I did get a refurb phone though so I can't complain to much. Other than that no problems.

I had that issue with my 4. Try holding down the home button and lock button at the same time until the white apple comes back on the screen. I think it takes about 10 seconds.

I went to the apple store yesterday and they told me the otter box can cause the lock button problem. And they told me that its been going on and off b/c of the heat that's retained inside the otter box mixed with how much storage I used.

But they got it to turn back on by JAMMING the lock button into the phone and they backed it up onto my laptop. So my pictures are saved and I was still under warranty so I got a new phone. :))

There was an error with the backup that was a huge pain to resolve.

Yea. They said that little rubber flap constantly pushes down on the button just a little bit and it tends to mess it up.

My lock button has become totally unusable & unresponsive. It seems to be a "known issue". I have no land line & don't want to give it to apple to repair nor do I have the $600 on a CC for a "place holder" phone.

Could that be because you're using too much storage?

My first 5 just stopped working, they replaced it, that one had a mike problem, they replaced it, and (thankfully) no issues w/5 #3. :)
Only issue w/ my 4: didn't survive a 12 ft fall onto concrete.

My ear speaker just stopped working and I have to put it on the actual speaker phone to have a phone conversation :(
