I am sorry to hear that you are experiencing issues with your phone. Based on the information provided, it seems that you may be experiencing a software issue. I would recommend taking your device into a local Sprint Repair Center for diagnostics. Please use the following link to find one near you: http://www.sprintstorelocator.com/search.aspx?INTNAV=ATG:HE:Store%E2%80%9D target=%E2%80%9D_blank
Please let me know if you have any questions.
Sorry to step in CDTechAdvocate, but if the phone will not boot any longer past the start screen MEROG08 can complete a hard reset via the keys on the phone, which is what the store will have to do to resolve the issue. Keep in mind MEROG08, this will reset your phone back to factory defaults, and any personal information such as ringers, call history, text message history and applications will be wiped from the phone. As long as your contacts are sync'd with your Google account, they will be restored to your device once you sign back into your account. These steps should take care of your issue and save a trip to the store unless the freezing/locking persist after resetting.
Here are the steps if you wish to proceed:
