[Q] Phone keeps locking up / Not connecting to GSM data
I'm having two issues and I'm thinking / hoping they both can be addressed at the same time.
1. My S3 locks up alot. It happens when the screen times out on most apps and it tries to go to sleep. Any button will awaken it but no buttons actually function, including power. Pulling the battery is required to reset it. It doesn't happen on the home screen.
2. The phone is rooted (not by me) and I'm using it in Costa Rica on a GSM network. I have phone and text but no data (except wifi). I have APN Manager Pro and have added Kolbi, but when I got to set the APN, there's no options. If I manually add it, it may or may not appear in the list, though it will appear in the APN Pro listings.
Even when it does appear, there's no real data coming thru - a couple of bits slipped thru on various combo of settings, but nothing streaming.
I'm a newb at this, but reading and learning.
I just want something dependable and efficient. What I use - phone, text, email, GPS, and some data. No games or such, just the basics.
I'm not sure what to fix first. I'm thinking a different ROM could fix both issues. Which ROM? I'm confused by the ROM options. I should be able to get 2G/3G without the ATT ROM.
Something else I should be doing?
