April 1 aside, freezing a tired battery can help rejuvenate it but from memory I think it only applies to NiCd batteries due to crystalline growths that can form. I think you get a similar result by hitting it with a heavy jolt for a short period, ie give it a high current blast.

Usually less hassle to replace a tired battery with a new one.

I doubt however this is the problem with your phone.

For the issue you are having putting a Battary in the freezer is going to do nothing ,zero, zip

You only have one option! The phone has to be checked out by the service agent

PS thanks for giving me a laugh this morning awesome
