I've been reading over previous posts regarding freezing problems on the S3.
Mine has not woke up when I've pressed the home button, froze when apps have started updating, froze while in apps and just randomly restarted itself.
Once I've had to take the battery out and other times I've just held down the power off button.
I haven't loaded any new apps recently. Should I factory reset it or just getin touch with Samsung?

Re: Freezing Issue
The factory reset is a last resort option after you've tried everything else. Give us a list of your most used apps and maybe someone will spot an offender that doesn't play well with others.Blessed are they who can laugh at themselves, for they shall never cease to be amused.

Re: Freezing Issue
After the factory reset, do you reinstall all your apps? That defeats the purpose of the reset. Reset and leave the phone stock, with no 3rd party apps. As in NO apps, not even Chrome, instagram and Carbon. If it still locks up, it would appear to be an issue that will require a trip to where you bought the phone. If it doesn't, then re-install your apps one or two at a time, run that way for a day or two. Keep track of what you've installed, and see what apps you install just before it starts locking up again.PLEASE, when asking for help provide as much information as possible. Otherwise, it's like calling your doctor and saying "My head hurts." Your doctor can't treat you unless he knows whether you have a headache or a concussion, and we can't help unless we know what the symptoms are and what you did before they occurred.
