Samsung Captivate 2.3.5 (Gingerbread) and Freezes


Samsung Captivate 2.3.5 (Gingerbread) and Freezes

Ever since I upgraded to Gingerbread (2.3.5), I have had the phone lock up periodically where the only remedy is to remove the battery. Yesterday, I took a picture and was trying to send the picture as an SMS and the phone frooze. 


I have also been using other applications, and the phone freezes.


I did have the issue before with Froyo (2.2), but not as oftern. The phone is not one that ATT said was "defective" with the shutdown issue.


Anyone else have the issue?

So this seems to have turned into a GPS Issue thread, but I'm hoping to get some help with freezing.


I have Gingerbread 2.3.5, and no issues with GPS or anything else (that I know of) other than the consistant freezing, which requires me to force restart my phone using the power and volume buttons at least once a day.


I reformat/factory reset my phone about every 6 months, but the issue keeps coming back.


Am I doing something wrong? Is there known app I might have that causes this to happen(I don't have many)?
