My blu life one is completely frozen

I was playing Simpsons Tapped Out and something to happens fairly frequently happened again, my phone just frozen up so I did what I always do and held the power button down only this time it didn't reboot, instead the screen won't turn back on and the red notification light (it can be either red or green depending on the notification) is stuck on. I think it was on before it froze though. I've tried holding the power button down for an entire minute and nothing happened. The battery is non-removable. So I'm really stuck as to what I need to do.

This is the phone http://www.amazon.com/BLU-Life-One-LTE-S...

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Sam p, did you find a resolution to this? I had the same thing happen to me today. I wasn't playing Simpsons though. That would have been way funner :)

I actually did figure it out. You have to hold down both the volume buttons and the power button at the same time for up to 2 minutes and it'll force a hard reboot. It most likely won't take the full 2 but if it doesn't do it by 2 minutes let me know.

Mine did this the other day, but I have discovered that the battery IS removable. There is a big black sticker above the joint, I should have done a teardown, but it does come out fairly easy. The steps you guys posted did not help me, as I was having the same [black screen, red LED] issue. Simply disconnect the battery to power off the device and it should be good as new! It does come out, but you need to get that black tape and other parts off first. This IS iFixit, after all.

When you say black tape, are you talking about the thick black tape wrapped around the batter...or the sticker you have to pull off....Also did you have to remove screws or anything....I want to take this battery out but I don't want to cause more harm while doing it. Any additional info would be great.

I no longer use it so I am going to upload a teardown guide for everyone that comes to this landing. I will be back with a link!
