Any ideas? I am going to take it back today to get another one, but may switch all together if it happens again.
Not sure the cause of the issue, but here is a freeze proof work around.
If your wifi ceasing moving data, dont turn wifi off and on, it does sometimes make the phone reboot or freeze. Instead hold power a sec and then choose airplane mode, then do it again and cancel airplane mode.

Not sure why but it works.

If you happen to forget and freeze it, wait till the main buttons backlight goes off, then hold power for a sec, and wait, the power off/airplane mode menu will come up. Go into airplane mode and the phone will suddenly unfreeze, then repeate to get wifi back.

Make sure to send a report to kyocera so that they will see that it is an issue needing addressed.

Aside from that, it has so far proved to be a good phone.
Larger screen would have been nice but then again my eyes are just old.
