    I read on another thread you might be interested in the GDR 3 preview. However you say your phone is freezing.

    First thing I would do is a soft reset: hold volume down and power button together until phone vibrates, let go. Phone will restart. You may have to reset time and date.

    If that doesn't help I suggest a hard reset but backup your data first. Settings -> Backup

    Hard reset -> Settings -> about -> Reset phone

    This will erase all your data on the phone so ensure you have backed up everything before doing this. Game data is unable to be backed up unless you can do so via OneDrive.

    The reason I'm suggesting this as installing GRD2 or GDR3 may not fix the issues you have so installing them may only cause more problems. If you haven't received GDR2 Over The Air (OTA) yet doing a reset may solve this issue.

    Once you do this, you can install GDR3 preview and you can use this thread as guidance: http://forums.windowscentral.com/win...ter-today.html
