I've had a lot of trouble with my N95's power button; had it fixed several times. But that might not be the problem. Typically what happens is that I'll get an incoming call, and try to answer it, but maybe touch the wrong button and the phone locks. Can't answer the call, call get it to hang up. It just freezes. Finally have to take the battery out of the back to get it to turn off, and then it won't turn back on. Is there a reset button or procedure I should try? If not, can anyone recommend a place to get it fixed? Nokia U.S. won't have anything to do with it because they say it was originally sold outside the U.S.

N95 Memory Full Problem can not be resolve by simply restarting or by
changing the network setting. You must "Manual Reset" it. Just Turn Off
the Phone, Press the *, Call Button, Three and ask another Person to
turn on your N95 by pressing the power button. Stay pressing the Three
Buttons until the phone fully boot up and ask you to enter Date and
Time. After that, youre phone will go back to Factory Setting.

Try the following manual method to hard reset/format Nokia N95:

Warning: Make sure the battery is at least 25% capacity so the phone will not power down during hard reset. ( Hard reset normally takes about 2 minutes only).
Warning: Hard reset will format everythings in your phone ( Your contact, calender, photos, installed Apps, Etc.) and the phone will be returned to its original state as if it was purchaced new.
My N95 does this too. I have a fix that will turn the phone on properly. 1st take out battery, 2nd press and hold power button, 3rd insert battery while still holding power button, 4th release power button as soon as your phone vibrates. That works for me.
This function is not supported by the N95. There could be several reasons for this: Not all people like it, people want to answer calls while having the slider closed, e.g because they use a headset. Also there are several slider positions, and due to multitasking, using several applications at the same time/while calling, it could Or to prevent ending the call by closing the slider accidentally... I don't know the exact reasoning behind it.
Anyway, unfortunately this is not possible and the chance that this functionality will be added in the future is small. Sorry, you'll have to use the end button.
