    Hello Guys and Gals..Any one has an idea or experienced this?
    My note 2 has been freezing frequently as in, when I turn it on to the lockscreen it is saying the wrong time and the tip/hint pops up (which I disable). Then I swipe to unlock and now the touchwiz is not responding. Gives me a option to wait or continue. Either one i click the screen turns black and I cannot do anything but pull the battery and turn back on. It's really not a big deal but it happened twice in the middle of the night, which led my alarm to not wake me up in the morning.
    Thank you

    I would suggest rebooting into recovery and wiping the phone' cache.

    Here is a guide for S2, S3, and Tab 2, but it should work for Note 2.

    I have the Note II GT-N7100, the international version. It was randomly restarting, freezing and giving me a lot of hard time.
    About a week ago Samsung posted a firmware update and that resolved my problems.

    I had those problems even after 4.1.2 several months ago. This firmware update was not related to 4.1.2

    Can somebody help me? I've got the N7105T Note 2. Had it since March. It's not rooted. Running 4.1.2 obviously. For the past 3 months my phone has been randomly freezing, switching off, rebooting itself. I have issues with my battery where I'm lucky if it survives 6 hours before being drained. Every day it freezes and I have to rip the battery out and reboot it. When I rip the battery out I lose easy 20% battery power. I've got no idea what's going on with this phone. It's my first android phone since jumping ship and am sort of lost as to what I do next.

    Have you tried replacing the battery?

    Not yet. Do you think my battery would cause the phone to constantly freeze and reboot

    Maybe a bad battery caused similar problems in my old droid X phone. Just be sure to get an OEM battery. That's an original Samsung one not a 3rd party one.

    Hi, I've been having this exact problem for a couple of days now and its totally frustrating. I've rebooted like a million times and most times after doing that it goes right back to where it was. Currently I am running 4.1.2 non root. How do I resolve this please?
