    S3 Random Shut Down

    Apologies if this was already posted, I couldn't find anything.

    I will turn the screen off my s3 by hitting the power button. When I go to turn it back on, the screen stays black. I try to turn it back on by holding the power button, but the only thing turning it back on is a battery pull.

    Does anyone know why this happens? Is it common? It doesn't happen a lot, maybe once every 2 weeks.


    Really looking for why this is happening and not "maybes".,......thanks in advance

    I don't have a galaxy s 3 I have only been reading these posts to see if I want to upgrade to one. I had a similar issue with my d2g when it was new, it would reboot when unlocking, I ran an sbf file and put it back to stock because I had rooted hoping that would fix the problem first (it obviously didnt) but after sbf'ing it never did it again, I re rooted and have had no issues for over a year. So what I'm suggesting is that I think sometimes during initial programing things don't always go right on androids. I would try a factory data reset to see if that solves the problem first.

    I have had this happen a few times as well. It usually happens to me when I have a lot of stuff running at once.

    I just got an update through VZW that helps with the frequent resets.

    I saw this too.....but I don't know if its related. The phones not rebooting, it shuts off and won't turn back on without a batt pull.

    From what I know, the reboots started two updates ago, when they updated to fix a security issue. I got my phone about a month before this most recent update and mine would reset 5 to 6 times a week. After getting the new one, it reset about an hour after I installed it but has not had any further resets since then. Phones been solid for about a week and a half now.

    Yeah mine only does once every 2 weeks or so, so its not a huge deal.

    I just wanted to see how common the issue was.

    I would hate to exchange the phone and find different or more issues with a new one...

    Mine has done this a few times. Most recently it happened yesterday. I have the most recent update. Doesn't happen enough to bother me too much.
