just remove the sim from the side slot, your device will reboot. your ram will be free again and you would be comfortable to use again. -) have a nice day ...!!!

Please press the Power button for longer time until it power off and then restart again the Tab. At times, the Tab will freezes and this is especially so when you have many programs running simultaneously.

Thanks pressing and holding the volume up key and power button did work. It helped me reboot.

I was experiencing dificulties when trying to turn my screen on. Each time I pressed the button to turn screen on and touched the screen it was just black.I heard the touch tone sounds once i raised the volume but the pad brightness was automatically set to low where you cant see a thing either just black. I recommend this method if your experiencing the same problem ;)

Connect Samsung Tab3 using USB cable to your Laptop/PC...

Once connected press POWER button for some time (like 15-20 secs or even more for about 30 secs if needed).

This should reboot your Tab3 and frozen state is gone...

Enjoy Tabbing... :)
