Verizon Galaxy S3 sometimes freezes phone when turning data on/off
I got my Galaxy S3 a couple days ago. Love it so far but have had one problem that does bug me. I have Verizon wireless so when I don't need to use data and to save battery I turn it off. When I go to turn it on then go to an app like facebook, instagram or etc. sometimes it will freeze. I can't go back and the screen is usually black and I can't get the notification bar either. Then if I click the power button on the right I won't be able go get back into the phone. None of the buttons will work but the phone is still on. I have to take out the battery and start it up again which is what really frustrates me.
Anyone have any problem like this and is there any fix? I just got this phone on Tuesday so it's updated and everything, even had an updated sticker on the box. I'm not sure if its because I turn on the data then try to open an app to fast which makes it freeze. I'll try to wait after turning on the data then see if it stops doing it. It doesn't happen everytime but it will happen about twice a day.
Any help would be great.
it doesn't have anything to do with turning off internet
I've had this problem a dozen times. certain sites or apps will cause it to hang almost every time. Very frustrating. Only solution is to pop the battery out.
