I'm new here, I just registered in order to see if other people were having the 'freezing' problem. I got my Galaxy S3 in summer thanks to Vodafone, that gave me the phone free. It has always worked smoothly without any troubles, but it started to freeze last month, I can't remember exactly when it started but I do remember that it solved by itself, and it hasn't been freezing until yesterday. Yesterday I received a software update notification, and I decided to update the phone, I think it was 26mb to download, so it took just a few minutes to download and install, when it finished updating I saw the notification saying that the phone had been correctly updated, but when I tapped OK the phone froze
then I restarted it by holding 10s the power button, and it's been freezing until now.
I've reading about this 'XXELLA' problem and I haven't been able to find a solution. For me, it's not a WiFi/Connection problem, it freezes anyway with/without being connection (I don't have 3G) and I'm not sure about how to unistall Chrome, there's only a 'delete updates' option in the App manager, and it downloads again by itself. I also read a possible solution in another forum: [...] In the dialler, type *#0011#. You'll go into the service mode. Select wi-fi using the menu button and you should see a toggle to disable WPS mode. Change it to OFF
, I haven't tried that yet, but maybe I'll try that later. Is there any other solution? I know that the first time that I had this annoying problem it fixed by itself, but I'm afraid that the constant freezing may cause several damage to the phone, I think I'm going to send it to Vodafone since I have the phone in warranty.
Thanks for your time, and sorry if my English isn't correct, I speak spanish.
