Hard Reset

When soft reset does not do the trick, then you ought to use this option. Please note, if you try this option make sure that you have backup all your data.

2. Next turn off your phone.

3. Now press and hold the Volume Down, Power and Camera key simultaneously until you feel your phone vibrates, then release the Power key and continue to hold the Volume Down and Camera key for a further 5 seconds.

Now your phone should start to return to the factory default settings.

Great info! i used the radio on my Nokia Lumia 900 when it froze. I can't shut it down either. Followed your soft reset instruction. I have to release the power and down volume after on vibrate since the 3 vibrates won't seem to come. Then it did a start up. 5 seconds later it vibrated 3 times. Thanks for the help.
