freezes up when I turn it on

My Galaxy S4 froze up while in use yesterday, I couldn't turn it off. I took out the battery and put it back in, it powered up but froze part way through loading. I swipe to unlock the screen but it doesn't unlock. Any ideas? I appreciate it.

Answered! View the answer I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

I called Verizon and they helped me fix it over the phone, I took out the batter, took out the memory card. put back in the battery. Turned it on and was able to hit the settings, More, Application Manager, deleted Zedge and a few other apps, (he said they could contain viruses), cleaned out some caches...and wow, it worked again!

Assuming that you still have no response and still cannot get a refresh to work or the battery removal doesn't solve the trick you may need to do a factory reset. Try this:

1.Turn the power off. If your Samsung Galaxy S 4G is frozen, pull the battery out and reinsert it

2.Hold the Volume Down button

3.Press and release the Power button

4.You are now presented with a menu that allows for Fastbook, Recovery, Clear Storage, and Simlock

5.Select Clear Storage by pressing the Volume Down button

6.Press and release the Power button

7.Now simply confirm your decision: Volume Up for YES and Volume Down for NO

Know that everything will be wiped clean however. If you need any further help please ask.
