How to force your Android phone to restart if it's frozen

RELATED TOPICS

Here's how you can force restart your Android phone.

1. If the battery is removable, take it out for at least a few seconds.

2. Put the battery back in, put the cover on and turn your Android phone on.

Some Android devices will also allow this method:

1. Hold the Sleep/Power button and hold the Volume button down at the same time.

2. Hold this combination of buttons until the Android phone's screen goes blank.

3. Hold the Sleep/Power button until your phone restarts.

This doesn't work with all Android phones, however. Some require a different combination of buttons to be held at the same time. Check with your manufacturer's site or documentation to find the correct combination of buttons.
