    Hi everyone,
    I received my Galaxy S 3 last Monday and love it!
    Last night however, I started getting a strange overlay over the top half of the Notification Bar.
    I also can move my finger over a section of any screen where there is no icon and it will draw in blue ink.
    Before this happened I was trying to get the hot spot working and I installed the beta version of My Phone Explorer.
    I tried to kill the My Pone Explorer App but it did not work.
    I am attaching some screen shots showing the screen plus a clear view of the numbers and symbols above each snip.
    Verizon said I need to hard reset my phone but I spent hours setting it up and am trying to avoid that!
    Any help would be appreciated! Thanks, View attachment 53437

    You borked that phone up! I have never seen that before.

    I would backup up your apps and factory reset myself.

    Overlay problem

    I fixed it without having to do a hard reset.
    The Verizon S3 expert had me push all the current settings to my phone from the closest cell tower.
    Anyone can do this by calling *22899

    Yes, simply follow my earlier directions and let me know if it works.
