Ever since I have upgraded to Windows Phone 8.1, my Lumia 520 has been hanging a lot. When it happens, the phone just freezes everything on the screen and nothing happens until I take out the battery, re-install and restart it. This happens every 2 to 3 days.

How can I fix this?

    Since it's a Developer Preview things like that were espected to happen. I think you only can wait for RTM. – Vitor Canova Jun 13 '14 at 15:18
  • everything is frozen, or just the touchscreen? for me the buttons do work, so i guess it is a problem with the lockscreen app, mainly – balint Jun 14 '14 at 11:49
  • Same issue for me on 925. Have to soft reset the phone every 2-3 days. – Rikalous Jul 22 '14 at 22:04
  • Is this still a problem for you? – Rowland Shaw Feb 27 '15 at 18:39

Most issues resulting from an update to Windows Phone 8.1 can be fixed by doing a hard reset.
