    so randomly my phone will just freeze in the lock mode and i will be unable to unlock it.

    i can't power it off or do anything but be frustrated till whatever time it decides to rejoin the living.

    anyone experiencing this or have any suggestions to resolve this issue?

    All you can do is pull the battery. It's a widespread issue. There are several threads on this to check out.

    This happens specifically in a few avoidable situations (and some that are unavoidable).

    To minimize this,

    Avoid pulling out and plugging in your charger only seconds part. Sometimes the phone freezes, with the charger light on, with the lock screen on, off, or dimmed (strangely). Either waiting a VERY long time or pulling your battery (soft reset) is the fix.

    Another one is when text messages come in. Sometimes, if you check your phone RIGHT as the notification happens, your phone will lock up like this. Wait a second after you hear the sound, or after you first see the trackball glow.
