Have to completely turn my iPad off each time I want to play because it freezes up

There seems to be a software glitch. The best way to fix this is to backup your iPad on iTunes or iCloud first then restore your iPad to factory settings by:
Clicking on the 'Settings' Icon, then General > Reset.
** Remember to make sure you have backed up your iPad as mentioned above **
Finally click on 'Erase All Content and Settings'

Once this is complete you can restore your iPad via the method you used to backup the iPad, either iTunes or iCloud

Having trouble trying to figure out how to do the touch screen calibration

Touch screen is not supposed to be "calibrated" by users. All my family uses touchscreen smartphones and computers and NEVER anyone mentioned the need of calibrating a touchscreen. If you have some problem with your touchscreen, it is something beyond standard devide operation and you should take it for service, if it is on warranty, to site where it should be serviced

Since the new update, my iPad screen freezes and won't allow me to open the call. If I make the call, it won't allow me to end the call

If you updated to IOS8.1 then it's got a glitch in it.
You need to go back to your last restore (if you saved it) or update but to IOS8 (Not IOS8.01)

Won't unlock

If it isn't responding to touch there is probably an issue with the screen.
If it responds to the power button when you press it (on the screen not on the top) then it is likely a software glitch. You'll be reflashing. Do not mess with the screen as it is not the problem.
First things first. Shut it off and restart it. If you cant shut it off open the back and pull the battery cable out. Leave it for a few minutes and plug it back in retry then move on the to following..
If you have important stuff you don't want to lose on it that would be lost if you flashed it: turn it off. Unscrew the casing and check the plug for the screen to make sure its plugged in. Push all plugs you see and ribbons in and reattatch if they are out.
If you can flash first: do it then follow the previous instructions after you try again.
If neither respond it seems the resistive response to the touch screen failed and you should probably try to get a new one under warranty or as a manufacturer defect. Do not tell them you opened the back. If they ask you to do that for troubleshooting that's cool but don't say you opened it because it may cause them to think you broke something.
Being that it is an old product that they are discontinuing, being nice and talking them about it may go a long way. Show your willingness to try to fix or work on the issue and sometimes with a little luck you get pushed up to someone with the power to actually help you out. You'll likely pay for shipping but you could very well end up with a brand new one.
Good luck

Velocity Micro Cruz ereader screen freezes. The "desktop" icons are not reacting to touch or tapping.

Mine hasn't frozen (yet) but if this is a more or less "permanent" freeze there is a reset pinhole between the power button and the usb connector. If this is in intermittent problem, the only thing I can say is that the device is poorly designed, the screen is just not very responsive and the CPU chip must be under-powered so it is very slow to react. If you tap-tap-tap a lot on the screen or the power button you might be overloading the CPU. Mine seems to freeze from time to time but eventually "catches up" and then starts working again. Sorry, but I definitely put this product only a half step above the junk category. I also own an Ipod Touch and holy cow there is a world of difference in quality and performance between the two.

Oh yeah - you might try calibrating the screen but I doubt that it will help much. The "calibration" suggestion really seems like more of a distraction tactic to make new owners think they are really doing something cool to make it work better out of the box.

If you can still return the machine for a refund I suggest you do - lots of new tablets andf "readers" will be hitting the stores within a few weeks and Best Buy will be selling these for $50 just to unload them!
