Am using lumia 720 from 2 months, Screen freeze often and long press of down volume key + lock key restarts the phone.
This time phone is running , ie getting calls (phone rings) n msgs , but display is black screen, windows and search botton at the down are glowing,,,, No use of long press of volume key + lock key,,,,,,
I have now done soft reset about 5 time - touch screen is still not working!!!
All of a sudden it decided to give up!
It is 20 day now & I have had this issue 2 time!
I am really unhappy about this...Nokia...got to do something...it is by far the worst expeience I had with phones!
looks etc are all good... but what good they are if I cant make any call!
Please provide some solution to this soon.

i have Lumia 720.
me and my brother has the same phone. but i use an 8 GB micro SD card on it while my brother has a different SD card of 2gb.
my brother's phone is running smoothly but my phone was constantly freezing.
Then i unplug my phone's 8 GB mikro SD card and screen freeze problem got away.
may be this makes a difference in this issue.

Press and hold the Volume down and the Power button simultaneously for 10 seconds. Your device should restart and work as normal.

I bought my Lumia 720 two days back. Yesterday night while I was checking out its low light camera shots the focus on half press just froze and the camera became unresponsive. The home button saved it for all other buttons failed. Curious on how such a new device would glitch I opened the camera again. The problem prevailed and I had to again use the home button. Immediately after which I locked my phone. This is when it froze. Figured out from the forums how to do a reset and it restarted fine with the exception of the wrong date and time. Since then I have been reading forums on wpcentral, nokia and microsoft. It's such a disappointment coming from Nokia. Also the fact that majority of its users are facing this issue is something Nokia should take into consideration and look into.
On one of the forums I read someone post about how a poor Mini to Micro SIM conversion or how various apps could have caused it. But I dont believe it to be any true because I did'nt even have my SIM and Memory Card in the phone. As a matter of fact I didn't even install a single app (apart from the one's it came preinstalled with) as I havent yet accesed Internet through it. Can anyone please tell what this is all about?
I have the exact same problem. I had the phone for about a week and it happened twice. At one time I was taking photos with the camera. Then the screen froze, displaying the current camera picture and became unresponsive, then after some time (maybe half a minute to a minute) the screen just went black and never came back. VolumeDown+Power button reset it and it started up again.
The second time it happened I just had the phone sitting on my desk, it hasn't been touched for at least 12 hours. I unlocked the screen and then came a message 'Resuming" with the animated dots. It's been doing that for about half a minute or a minute and then the screen went black again, the phone became completely unresponsive, had to reset it agian.
I only have WiFi enabled (no Bluetooth/etc.).
I suspect it's a bug in the OS/software because when the phone is in this unresponsive state, connecting it to a computer via USB still brings up the phone connection on the computer as usual.
I read many posts and answers but have not noticed a real working solution for sudden freeze screens or "dead" Lumia 720, did I miss something ?
My Lumia 720 freezes nearly any time I listen to the music , but also while checking exchange mail account( in the beginning for some other applications, now only these 2 ),
I use 64GB fast SD card where I have around 20GB of music( so lot of free space ).Phone memory has still about 3GB free.
I hardly ever use 2 applications together , so heavy use cannot be the issue, all updates installled right away.
Last night it froze and "died" ( for couple of hours I coud not do anything , did not try hard reset, just soft as I have installed HERE DRIVE full version) . It is so frustrating, I was about to throw it against the wall ( second time already ) , any advice except returning to the shop .I am strictly against Android or iPhone but i am getting rather nervous what to do .
thanks for any advice
My Lumia 720 was purchased on Thu 25th. The issues i have
1. I tried pairing my bluetooth BH-108 with the L720 & it wasnt recognising the accessory. So i stopped after couple of tries. Locked my screen and drew to work, where i realised the phone just wouldnt show up. When i called from my landline the L720 was ringing to my landline earpiece, but the mobile phone wasnt ringing or responding, screen blank !. I then tried the Powerbutton + volume rockers. The phone switched back-on and everything is fine after it. I am yet to try re-pairing the phone though
2. Each time i change screens by pressing the back button (left), the clock shows up all across the blank screen and sometimes a blue line keeps running through...this is common on every single back-move. Jarry screen and its just showing badly. See the screen shot i have attached
I am not seeing any solution on this forum.. but if others are also facing a similar issue, then its more wide i guess
I just want to say that I have the same problem with the phone. After some heavy usage, e.g. taking tens of phots, or using GPS continiously for 10 mintues, sometimes (not always), and after I close the screen manually, the phone now respones to nothing! It behaves like zero power! I cannot restart, cannot do anything.
And when I plugin the power, the phone becomes live again. I can see that there is enough power left. So definately a software issue! Nokia, please fix this!
so i have had this phone for less than 10 hours , set it all set up as per YOUR instuctions~ within 4 hours it's F******D !!! screen frozen , waited & waited went to the www for tips & came to this page tried all the tips on this page held the power button down for 5 mins on many occasions to no avail ,plugged into the laptop , guess what F**k all ! in the old days tip one # was remove the battery , no can do !~ only apps loaded are face book , RAC & drive, 4 F*****G hours i have been trying now, can not recieve calls , i tried from my land line, ~can not make calls as my phone is for all intent DEAD ! i should apologise for the language but i won't unless someone can sort this out, as it would apear it is not a faulty phone but a problem your end that i would rather like sorting swiftly as it would apear from this thread so would many others !!(oh sorry can't get a windows fix via phone as it's DEAD !!)~ this phone costs £249.00 via 02 & SUPPOSED to be cutting edge ? !!! any sensible tips on how to fix other than slinging the thing in the bin ?
Hi my new Lumia 720 sometimes freeze up and only way out is a reset..... Any tips please? Is this a known issue? Is there any fix update planned to be released?
The screen does not light up and the phone appears dead. However when I Call the number I get a ringing tone but there is no sound from the nokia 720. What could be the matter and how can I wake up the phone ..
So I got about 12 updates this morning. One was for display+touch which I think may be the culprit. I won't get my hopes up as I've learned that Nokia is terrible with smartphone quality control (this is my second bad Nokia smartphone in as many attempts). I'll post back in a week if I don't have
anymore soft resets. I was up to 3 per day a couple days ago...
