    Hello wonderful and wise people!

    I updated my S3 with a firmware update on Christmas Day. Ever since then accessing my photo galleries is nigh on impossible: they seem to take forever to load (if they do at all). I tried to stop it synching with Facebook albums but it even takes forever to load when I am not connected to the internet. Is anyone else having any problems...? Does anyone have any ideas how to fix the blessed thing?

    Many thanks!

    How many photos do you have? If you dont have many then try resetting your phone, take your battery out and leave it for about a min before you put it back in. If the gallery is still slow then id suggest a back up with kies and then restore it back to factory l.

    Thanks for the reply! I did as you suggested in the first place (battery out) and still not much better. I then moved all the pics from the camera gallery (which appear first) and it seemed to help a little. I can send from the gallery okay but if I'm in what's app it gets really slow (I have to go into the gallery and send from there rather than through the app)

    Muchly appreciate the suggestions

    I have the same problem after update. Also can't upload top Facebook albums anymore either and only one pic at a time v annoying. Also since update can't get my phones contacts to show on kies or back up. Everything I update something pisses up! last time I lost swipe/continuous input function which I still haven't boot back it still shows on settings but it's greyed out so you can't select it. :o

    Anche io ho problemi con la galleria del mio S3, non mi piace come sono organizzate le cartelle! E voi?

    It seems that it may have been something to do with the sync with my facebook photos. I disconnected the album sync function between phone and fb and now the galleries load up fine.
