Make your your are pressing the center key properly (make sure only the center key is depressed and not together with the DPAD that surrounds it). Use your nail to depress it.

    Also, try it without holding it for 5 seconds. Try it after holding it for a second or two.

    If it still doesn't work try the same procedure but instead of holding the center key, hold the E and Z keys.

My nokia lumia625 is not letting me unlock my phone and its coming up with a time setting each time i attemps toput in my password

If you an not turn the phone off from the lockscreen, then hold down the home button and or the power button at the same time. Your phone should shut off after a minute, then simply turn it back on and the lockscreen app should be reset. If this does not work take it to your local dealer

My android phone locked because of to many attemps because i am using the pattern

You will need to enter the password for the Gmail account you set up on the phone. If you cannot remember the password, go to and click "Can't access my account" and attempt to recover your password. If neither of these work, the ONLY other way to get into your phone is to do a hard reset. Unfortunately, this will erase everything on your phone.

I can not enter any text into my phone. When I attempt to respond to text messages etc., the phone freezes and I have to take the battery out to reset it.

Motorola's have had alot of problems my phone the same exact one did that too and they have dis-continued motorola for these reasons you will have to get a new phone or suffer with the problem.

I cant send texing and my phone freezes constantly

What you need to do is a hard reset, Pull the battery out, and place it back in, this normally will force the phone to manually reboot. ** Just leave the phone on, while removing the battery **
This WILL NOT make you lose any saved info on the phone. If this doesn't work, I recommend you speak with the manufacture and see about either, A. Warranty Exchange B. Tech Support.
Let me know how it goes,
